16: Experiences in Migration and Integration: A Cultural Approach

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

This seminar will compare experiences in migration and integration in the United States and in Europe both in historical and political terms and in the way they have been represented in arts and culture. While the United States has a long-standing experience as a country of immigration, European countries have generally not conceived of themselves as such. These different experiences have also been reflected in and shaped by arts and culture. Cultural productions have provided abstract migration statistics with individual faces. They have mobilised against discrimination and exclusion and provided ideas for societal change in response to migration.
