Leader: Felicia Boma Lazaridou, Claudia Ba; Institutional affiliation: Institut für Soziologie, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Funding Period: 01.04.2022 – 30.09.2022
Perspectives of students from every study subject (preferably M.A./M.Sc) are joined, to reflect, problematise and visualise through transdisciplinary terminology and theoretical background on the implications of discrimination and spatialised trauma of People of Colour in Berlin. Urban contexts are negotiated sites of racist experiences and inversely also sites of placebased belonging. Therefore, our aim lies on researching place-based belonging and racism as sources of mental health among People of African Heritage in Berlin. A special focus lies on Visual methods and Theories on the production of (urban) space, that will be applied by the students to the seminars topic. The Group will further the understanding on ethical fieldwork and Black subjectivity. The research projects results will be presented in a symposium/poster session.
