Guest lecture

We are pleased to invite you all to an exiting guest lecture this Wednesday at 18.00. Urmila Goel is a postdoctoral researcher in social and cultural anthropology affiliated to the European-University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany and is currently staying as a visiting scholar in Bergen. Her research interests cover in particular strategies of dealing with experiences of racism as well as the interdependency of racism and heteronormativity.

Here follows a description of her lecture, «Indian religions in Germany – Their role for the children of the migrants«:

Migrants from South Asia have brought different religious affiliations to Germany. Among them are Malayali Christians, Bengali Hindus, Pakistani Ahmadis and Afghani Sikhs to name only a few. Some of the migrants have actively engaged themselves in forming religious communities and networks, others have practiced their religion in private and yet others lived a secular life. The children of the migrants have been socialised to very different degrees with the religions of their South Asian parents. On the basis of my anthropological research among those categorised most commonly as Indians of the second generation I will present which roles religious socialisation plays for the children of the migrants. In particular I will illustrate the importance of religious communities and networks to them as well as the role of their experiences of exclusion on the basis of religion.

You are all welcome this Wednesday, at 18.00 – AUD R Sydneshaugen School.
