David Feldman (London) über "The Racialization of Jews and Others (Die Rassifizierung von Juden und anderen)“
Im Rahmen des vom Projekt "Geschichte der Ihnestraße 22" ausgerichteten OFFENEN HÖRSAALS "Eugenik – Entmenschlichung – Erinnerung" spricht David Feldman (University of London) über "The Racialization of Jews and Others (Die Rassifizierung von Juden und anderen)".
For much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the idea of race was central to the ways in which the human and natural sciences dealt with differences between peoples. In this lecture, David Feldman examines how this endeavour helped to create and reinforce racialized hierarchies within Europe and beyond. At the same time, he explores how, for some, the idea of race was compatible with the unity of humankind and how it was used by Jews and others to resist domination and denigration.
Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Lautsprache statt.
