As one of the first initiatives within the CEMES research group Europe as a global process we are happy to present the lecture series Racism: When, What, How and Why? We hope that many will join us as we explore the history of racism in Europe and beyond. Read more below about the first two lectures in the series Racism: When, What, How and Why?
In the lecture series Racism: When, What, How and Why? we invite renowned scholars of racism, slavery and colonialism to present their work on the history of racism. We discuss questions of chronology, definition, substance, and effects in order to support a historically informed and shared investigation of how racism has shaped European societies. What is the work of racism, what does it facilitate, what are the domains into which it penetrates, how does it change from place to place, who - or what - needs or denies racism and why? These are just some of the questions that we will touch upon in this lecture series.
