The Margherita von Brentano Center for Gender Studies at Freie Universität Berlin is organizing for this summer term 2021, the third edition of the Transnational Feminist Dialogues. The online series will be held in May, June and July under the title "Transnational Feminist Dialogues in Times of the Neoliberal University".
We want to focus on the neoliberal character of today´s higher educational system and address some structural phenomena related to power relations from a critical perspective. Our invitation is to reflect and discuss which discourses, policies and actors are shaping universities in times when neoliberalism has reached all spheres of the higher educational system and what alternatives we have to counter this one-sidedness.
The second session, “Questioning racist structures in Academia: perspectives from the Gender Studies”, puts the focus on the racist structures that shape science and academia and the contributions that Gender Studies can make to dismantle them, forms of resistance and the possibilities of solidarity, both within the academy/university context and beyond its borders.
