The theory of trilemmatic inclusion – or, as today's host prefers to call it: the theory of trilemmatic diversity – is a tool designed to inspire re_orientations in the fields of activism and scholarship. Drawing on the concept of rhizomatic cartography (Deleuze & Guattari), it traces pathways of resistance, different anti-discriminatory strategies, and their dead ends which arise from logical contradictions as well as ethical ambivalences. The lecture will give a short introduction into this theoretical tool and use it to analyze different exemplary fields.
