Our political and societal structures make practices of labelling inevitable—due to both bureaucratic as well as social imperatives—with consequences that are felt on a personal and collective level. The discourse around and a discussion about the actual implications of what it means to be labelled a „refugee“—by the authorities, friends, acquaintances or in other areas of everyday life—has real urgency. Given the exceptional vulnerabilities of refugees due to their lack of access to power and resources, it is especially important to hear about personal experiences, opinions and perspectives on what it is like to be named a „refugee“. In our 18th DAFG Jour Fixe, Dr. Rasha Alkhadra will talk about the difficulties (and also the advantages) of being called a „refugee“ in daily life: in the shelter, at schools, in universities, the labor market, news and politics but also in daily activities like shopping or dating.
Dr. Rasha Alkhadra worked as a dentist in Syria. Since 2016, she has been living in Germany, teaching workshops focused on, i.a., intercultural communication and identity. She is also active in cultural journalism and chronicles her experiences of living in Germany on her YouTube channel "Rasha and Life".
The DAFG Jour Fixe-series aims to be a platform for dialogue which is primarily addressing English-speaking students and young professionals interested in the exchange between Germany and the Arab world.
Please find our letter of invitation here. We look very much forward to your participation. If you wish to attend, feel free to register until 13 March 2019 via our website or with Jan-Philipp Zychla, Project Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org, 030-20654812).
