About the lecture

What is behind the idea of an assignment for racism criticism? What structural problems exist and how are they addressed? The lecture will outline the ways in which students feel racially discriminated against and the different forms of racism and micro-aggressions that exist. The question of whether anti-Semitism is a special form of racism or can be subsumed under racism in general will also be addressed. We will also discuss why we talk about anti-Muslim racism. ‘After all, Muslims are not a race - apart from the fact that there are no races at all,’ says Aminpur.
