European B/orders along the Balkan Refugee Route and Europeanness

In this moderated discussion we will talk about narratives on Europeanness and the implication of EU border regimes along the Balkan Refugee Route in the larger context of European integration. How have European integration processes transformed asylum, immigration and overall bordering policies as well as narratives on (European) belonging? How do European policies reinforce racism and Islamophobia and produce whiteness through racialized border regimes? We will also explore how new political networks and social movements for solidarity confront...

Online-Event/Livestream: MACHBAR! LET’S DO IT, EUROPE! Young ideas for how Europe can do better. [English]

„United in diversity“ is the official motto of the European Union. The underlying promise: a pluralistic Europe offering everyone equal opportunities, visibility, acceptance, and participation. But despite much that has been achieved, it has always been and still is more of a vision than a lived reality which is now increasingly under attack by populist and nationalist tendencies. As a matter of fact, not everyone has the same access or right to participation in Europe,...

Digital Lecture: Contemporary racisms in Europe with Prof. David Theo Goldberg

European societies are characterized by plurality, but equally so by contemporary forms of racism that have long lasting links to a seemingly far away past. Racisms are as fluid as the contexts in which they come about, but still appear to follow certain recognizable logics and fulfil particular functions. What characterizes contemporary racisms in European societies today? In addition to observing the effects these racisms still have for people affected by racial discrimination in Europe...

Digital Lecture: Decolonizing Europe with Prof. Fatima El-Tayeb

Even though racism is inseparable from European history and the continents' colonial past, the idea of Europe as a "colorblind continent" has been central to the continents' narrative. In her book ‘European Others: Queering Ethnicity in Postnational Europe.’ (2011), our speaker Fatima El-Tayeb, Professor for Literature and Ethnic Studies at the University of California, San Diego, examines how racialized communities in Europe produce new forms of identity and activism as tension between a growing non-white,...
