Abstract

Drawing on a number of paradigmatic works of art, the book explores the motif of ‘gypsy’ child-theft and its visualisations. The analytical focus is on the colour coding of bodies in texts and images and their racialised/anti-gypsy uses. Offering a comprehensive survey of the motif’s adaptations to different visual media, the author elaborates on its multiple layers of meaning and functions. The analysis starts with a critical review of Cervantes’ tale “La gitanilla”, moving through seventeenth-century Dutch history painting to take a cursory look at nineteenth-century printed images, and end up with an annotated filmography of 49 cinematic works.

Abstract

The ideology of purity-of-blood (limpieza de sangre) divided early modern Iberian society into two different classes: Old Christians and New Christians. New Christians, i.e. Conversos (converted Jews) and Moriscos (converted Muslims), but also their offspring, were thought to be inferior Christians and always tending towards apostasy. At the turn of the 17th century an increased interest in bodily markers to proof the presumed inferiority of the so-called New Christians can be observed. The book focusses on the question how the apologists of the purity-of-blood statutes used the idea of inherited bodily markers to promote a genealogical racism in early modern Iberia.

Abstract

Wie verlaufen die Argumentationsmuster in Völkerkundemuseen und den Wissenschaften der Völkerkunde sowie der Anthropologie zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts? Das Buch versucht, dieser Frage an zwei Fallbeispielen nachzugehen, indem der theoretische Diskurs der Sammlungs-, Ausstellungs-, Lehr- und Forschungspraxis gegenübergestellt wird. Der identifizierte Wandel von einem »Kultur«- hin zu einem »Rasse«-Begriff sowie der Perspektivenwechsel von Objekten hin zu Körpern wird dabei in einem breiten kolonialen Kontext interpretiert - über ein tradiertes Epochenverständnis hinaus. Dadurch werden Kontinuitäten und Brüche präziser erkennbar als bislang üblich.

Abstract

Wie vollzog sich die evolutionstheoretische Transformation der Rassentheorien im Kontext der sogenannten Darwinianischen Revolution? Diese Frage wird nur auf den ersten Blick durch die große Zahl ideengeschichtlicher Arbeiten beantwortet, denn sie lassen die konkreten Bedingungen dieses Wandels im Dunkeln. Thomas Gondermann unterzieht die sozialen Formationen im Umfeld Darwins, ihre rassentheoretischen Ansätze und wissenschaftspolitischen Kampagnen einer minutiösen Untersuchung. Diese zeigt das Zusammenspiel von sozialer und kognitiver Dimension des evolutionstheoretischen Wandels der Rassentheorien und legt seine enge soziale Beziehung zur Etablierung der Evolutionstheorien in den Naturwissenschaften dar.

Abstract

Racist police checks are part of everyday life in Europe. They make it dramatically visible who is not considered a fellow citizen. While much of the dominance society finds this racist practice normal, more and more people are no longer prepared to accept it without resistance. The volume brings together scientific, artistic and activist contributions to the social backgrounds and modes of action of racial profiling and the possibilities of intersectional anti-racist resistance. The focus is on Switzerland, supplemented by perspectives from authors who are familiar with the German context.

Abstract

With the slogan of "Islamization" different social currents mobilize their followers. It also serves the fight against liberal democracies with their social pluralism. In the intra-societal cultural struggle, apocalyptic down and downfall scenarios call for fundamental change. Oliver Wäckerlig's network analysis traces a transatlantic Islamophobic movement with its transitions to the middle of society and shows an organizational continuity from anti-communism to Islamophobia. "Islam experts" stand in various roles at the hinges of the network and connect actors, organizations and media.
