Reason and Engage

 

What is everyday racism? How big is the problem today? How does racism relate to equality as basic universal right? Who are perpetrators and victims, and can we make this distinction at all? What about racism in higher education? And above all: how can we get rid of racism in the world? 

The seventh edition (2021-2022) of the VUB interdiscplinary Reason and Engage course explores issues related to racism. During four evening lectures, it explores the topic of racism from various perspectives. The evening lectures are accessible to all. 

This Reason and Engage lecture series was created in collaboration with BIRMM and many other partners: deMens.nu, Humanistisch Verbond - department Brussels, Wtnschp, Crosstalks, WeDecolonizeVUB, UPV, Citizenne, The World needs you, Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union & De Wetenschapswinkel - Brussels.
