Inhalt In a first step, this seminar will critically investigate multiple entanglements between border regimes and the racialisation of immigration and mobility. It will focus on Switzerland’s racialised immigration history and ask how Switzerland’s racial exceptionalism is imagined through notions of belonging to the nation and how this is manifested in urban spaces. The seminar will link this to other situated, yet transnationally connected border regimes and seek out connections to the racial exceptionalism and peripheralisation of the postcolonial / postsocialist space of former Yugoslavia. How is race manifested in these diverse social spaces and how does it connect to migration and mobility?
Being situated in a time of profound neoliberal and social transformation and crisis, we will, in a second step, take a closer look at various forms of contemporary border violence and engage in thinking about alternative futures. While the violations of human rights along Europe’s external borders presently occur on a daily basis, attempts to prevent and scandalise them are met with increasing brutality, ignorance and compassion fatigue. Which theoretical approaches in critical border regime literature as well as activist practices offer promising avenues forward in order to advance border justice? More precisely, how do we make sense of such diverse approaches such as the right to stay and move and strategic litigation in transforming the world into a more equal place? How might queer theory and other theories help us think through different options of confronting the persistent human rights violations?
