Prof. Dr. Kira Kosnick

3/6/9 ECTS

MA-Seminar: MEK; KGMOE; MES, Migration, Ethnizität, Ethnozentrismus

Donnerstag: 14:15-15:45 Uhr


This seminar will investigate contemporary forms of racism and racisms in the plural, and examine both different theoretical approaches and case studies drawn mainly from Europe and the United States. The focus will be on structural forms of racism that are linked to economic and state-based inequalities within and beyond nation-states. Students need to be willing to work through and engage with English texts, to regularly hand in written assignments, and to participate both regularly and actively in English-language discussions in the virtual or physical classroom.
