The ICDL Lecture/ Workshop Series

As envisaged in its concept, the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence has established a Gender and Diversity Office (GDO). For the upcoming semesters, the GDO has launched a lecture and workshop series on “Intersectionality and Critical Diversity Literacy”.

GENERAL OBJECTIVES AND RELEVANCE OF THE ICDL LECTURE AND WORKSHOP SERIES

As an organizational space, the university demonstrates an accretion of functions, people, discourses, histories, cultural perspectives, hierarchies, research interests and output which produce (and are produced by) knowledges (Mohanty, 2003 and Ahmed, 2012). It is notable that diversity parameters in the German university equity context are often chiefly concerned with gender, motherhood and disability, while race and ethnic origins are frequently side-lined and intersectional dimensions are eclipsed. These are being assessed in the given institutional frameworks in order to develop intersectional vocabularies and measures at the levels of administration, research cooperation and teaching. In this light, the Gender and Diversity Office holds the mandate for the identification and analysis of mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion as well as potentially divisive boundaries identified in order to implement counter-measures.
