62250-01 - Seminar: Decolonizing the Swiss Urban Landscape 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Claske Dijkema (claske.dijkema@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt After the killing of George Floyd, structures and representations of white supremacy, including symbols, maps, and memorials became targets worldwide to contest racism nowadays. The tribute to white males who played a role in slavery and colonialism through statues and place names became objects of contestation in Switzerland. Contested monuments therefore serve as starting points for analysing power relations in cities. This course approaches the city as a palimpsest: multiply inscribed and imperfectly erased, imbued with traces and residues, laden with memory.
The course adopts an intersectional approach to power dynamics, looking at the intersections between class, race and gender and how patriarchy, capitalism and white supremacy silence the voices oppressed by and whose memory is systematically erased. The concept of (de)coloniality is particularly useful for understanding these intersections and to understand the perpetuation of structural violence. The course further draws on subaltern studies: what are the ways subalterns speak in the city and how can subaltern histories be retrieved or recovered? We will look for “people’s monuments”, those that contest current power relations and heterotopic spaces that give a glimpse of what a different world could look like. While discussions about Swiss urban space are the starting point for the course, they will be complemented with an account of urban space in other European cities. The course will be co-taught with issue-based organizers and civil society groups working on the topics of racialized exclusion, decolonization, gentrification, and urban space within Switzerland.
Lernziele - Developing research and archival skills.
- Applying a critical analysis to the narratives of city tours.
- Design and development of creative and practical interventions in the local Swiss context.
- Formulating recommendations about how to address contested monuments.
