Racism in Lecture Halls? - festival contre le racisme: meeting for networking & preparation
Friday, 01-12-2018, 17:00h to Sunday, 01-14-2018, 15:00h
Especially in times of growing far-right organisations like the AfD (Alternative
für Deutschland/Alternative for Germany) or students' fraterneties, we need
to join our forces to stand up against racism. Therefore we invite you to
take part in networking & preparation at "Racism in Lecture Halls?"
For quite a while now, racism is a more or less obvious problem in all parts of society. But during the last few years, racism got much more upfront about its ways and ideas in every way! Taking a look at the situation in Leipzig justifies to say: Racist and anti-immigrant speech is being normalized not only digitally, but in lecture halls too.
In case you are interested, please register at the bottom.
