Inhalt Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), as a concept and practice has developed a wide appeal, especially on the part of businesses, governments, universities, and cultural institutions seeking to ensure a certain degree of fairness in their hiring and promotion processes. This appeal implies the recognition of persistent inequalities pertaining to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, among other lines of tension at work within contemporary Western societies. In this class, we would like to explore the origins of the concept and practice. We will explore the spaces in which DEI has been deployed as a tool for action: notably, in business environments, in healthcare, in culture. We will try and understand the ways in which these efforts have expressed themselves in these different areas, and the extent to which one can evaluate (or not) the outcome of such engagements.
We will do so by asking the question of DEI's relationship to the struggles for a global recognition of citizenship rights which have been the hallmark of the post-World War II Decolonisation Movement, the Civil Rights' Movement in the United States of America, and the Women's Liberation Movement. Is DEI a neo-libreal 'translation' of these historic struggles? Which dimensions of the struggles for global citizenship have survived in contemporary practices of DEi work? Can the multiple calls for 'decolonisation' be equated to the objectives pursued by DEI practitioners?
The course will be an opportunity to engage in the literature on the topic of DEI, of decolonisation, of the history of the above-mentioned citizenship struggles as well. We will engage directly with DEI practitioners whom we will have as guest contributors to the class.
