2018 Summer School on Black Europe

We are now accepting applications for the 11th annual Summer School on Black Europe!

The overall goal of this intensive two-week course is to examine the contemporary circumstances of the African Diaspora in Europe. We will focus on the historical and colonial legacies of European countries to discuss the origins of Black Europe and investigate the impact of these legacies on policies and legislation today. This course addresses the dimensions of race and ethnic relations that are unique to Europe, examining the ways in which conceptions of the "other" are institutionalized and reproduced: the rise of xenophobia in various EU countries; issues such as global racisms, everyday racism, and epistemic racism; the legal definitions and discourse surrounding the conceptualized "other"; and the ways in which each country has dealt with issues of race and national identity. Issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality are central analytics, and scholars from the social sciences, humanities, and NGOs working against racism and xenophobia in Europe are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due by February 1, 2017. The application and additional information can be found on our website (http://www.dialogoglobal.com/amsterdam/). You can also visit us on Facebook and email any inquiries to blackeurope@dialogoglobal.com.
