GERMAN TABLE SPRING 2017
Tuesdays, 12.00-1.00pm, Bob’s, Private Dining
We stand for equality, diversity, and inclusivity, and we stand up for those harmed and made vulnerable by systemic racism, sexism and other forms of structural violence throughout the world, including here on this campus. And we stand with and in some cases as people of color, Muslims, Jews, immigrants, asylum-seekers, refugees, members of the LGBTQI communities and with women and girls across the spectrum– and all those in favor of equality and social justice.
As scholars and teachers, we are dedicated to exploring the scope of human diversity, the processes that shape contemporary human societies, and to reflect self-critically on taken-for-granted assumptions. We expose the foundations of structural inequality and we document and analyze the dangers posed by inflammatory rhetoric in mobilizing violence. We are committed to bringing all our resources to better understand and analyze the current moment, as well as protecting our vulnerable colleagues and students, and promoting a diverse, inclusive and just community.
