Decolonial and anti-racist education – Theory, practice, guidelines and concepts
Thursday, 16th of November, 2023, 6 pm
Racism is wrong. People are equal. Colonialism has ended. This public consensus is more than tricky when it comes to complex educational settings in the age of multi-directional remembrance and multi-cultural societies. How can we educate on controversial matters such as racism? In his talk, Prof Laing explores the current state of de-colonial and anti-racist education in Germany. The racism researcher and civic educator will explore current practices of de-colonial education and critically reflect concepts of anti-racist training. After more theoretical remarks at the beginning, his reflections will heavily lean on his practical experience of providing more than 500 educational formats on diversity in all sectors of the German society.
Prof. Dr. Lorenz Narku Laing is one of Germany’s youngest professors and founder of the diversityconsultancy “Vielfaltsprojekte GmbH.” He serves as an advisory board member of the National Discrimination and Racism Monitor and is a member of the Volkswagen AG Diversity Panel.
