Critical Whiteness Workshop
We are happy to welcome the team from glokal e.V., a Berlin-based association for education and consultancy against racism, offering an exciting workshop on “critical whiteness“. After glokal e.V. has organised courses concerning “critical whiteness“ for the Centre of Key Qualifications at the University of Passau, the current workshop is aimed at raising awareness of one’s own positioning of being “white“ within an environment dominated by power structures. The overall objective is to offer a chance for open discussions whether or not one personally agrees with it. In case of disagreement, there’s a chance to clarify which thoughts and impulses can be drawn from this, especially what can be done against it.
Prior registration is required by May 13th, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to your active participation.
