Prof. Hansjörg Dilger / Prof. Matthias Warstat
The first tandem cooperation of the second funding period of the CRC 1171 is run by social anthropologist Hansjörg Dilger and theatre scholar Matthias Warstat. Under the headline of „Institutionalising diversity“, the affective challenges and experiences are being investigated that occur when aspects of migration and globalisation meet with concepts of diversity and multiplicity and enter institutionalised realms such as medicine, theatre, media and the arts, or law and communal politics. New emotion repertoires develop under the impression of changing institutions or the formation of new institutional fields as much as questions after the effects of such changing emotion repertoires on the dynmaics of inclusion and exclusion. Any of these processes are relevant both on an individual as well as a collective level, and their close investigation will combine perspectives from the political and social sciences with those from the theatre and literary studies.
The tandem will organise the CRCs 4th international annual conference in May 2020 under the title of „Diversity Affects | Troubling Institutions“, Keynote-Speaker: Sara Ahmed („The Cultural Politics of Emotion“, „On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life“).
