In Search for a Narrative for Germany as a Country of Immigration
17% of the German population are foreign-born; many more have a ‘migration background’. This profound transformation entails that the collective self-image of Germany requires adaptation, also considering that the optimism of previous debates about equal membership has faded. Marginalised perspective call for recognition and structural change. A workshop, organised by Daniel Thym and two experts of literature, will bring together an interdisciplinary group on 22/23 June 2023. Participants will reflect on contemporary controversies and discuss potential ways forward, including in a political keynote by the regional minister of social affairs and integration, Manne Lucha. Further information can be found on the website of the workshop, including on how to register for the event.
