Racism at Work

Sensing Inferiority - On Labour, Racism and Affect

Encarnacíon Gutierrez-Rodriguez:

Hörsaal B, Campus der Universität Wien, Hof 2.10

This presentation will deal with affect as a dimension of the social by focusing on how racism is played out in work contexts. It will do this by engaging with household and academic labour. Some consideration will be given to the emotional impact of migration control policies and institutional racism.
