Workshop Announcement:

Black Feminism and critical whiteness in Germany
First the workshop will have a short introduction on the history of the Afro-German movement and especially on the development of a Black Feminism in Germany since the 80ies. The focus is set on the leading role of women in the afro-german movement as well as transatlantic influences, especially in the shape of poet and activist Audre Lorde.
In the second part we want to consider the question what these developments and impulses (could) mean for white german women and men. What does it mean being white in Germany? Which consequences result from the critical reflexion of one’s own whiteness? Based on different materials (pictures, excerpts, etc.) we will discuss these as well as futher questions on the role of the black diaspora in Germany, on the connections of feminism and racism, and the meaning of racism and racial structures in the german culture and society.
