German

Knowledge is provided that highlights racism in the context of its emergence. Knowledge about colonialism is imparted. Theories of decolonial theorists are taught, as well as the consideration of the category gender in this context. The goal is a transfer to own projects and perspectives.

Colonial continuities can be observed worldwide. Whether it is neo-colonial exploitative, economic and ecological North-South relations, or the hegemonic knowledge that is repeatedly produced in the countries that imperialistically and colonialistically shaped the world order. Moreover, sciences, culture, and even everyday life are not free of this ongoing history. Gender studies is also more or less intertwined in it. On the one hand in knowledge practices and on the other hand Maria Lugones (2016) speaks of the "coloniality of gender". In the seminar, we will address precisely these perspectives. We will ask what is meant by the keyword coloniality (Quijano). We will consider how to decolonize the understanding of gender, but also gender studies as a whole. The goal will be to make small projects where the main point will be to decolonize perspectives.
