Black Europe Summer School 2017

10th Anniversary Program

June 26 – July 6, 2017

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Black Europe


Now in its 10th year, the overall goal of this intensive two-week course is to examine the contemporary circumstances of the African Diaspora in Europe. We will focus on the historical and colonial legacies of European countries to discuss the origins of Black Europe and investigate the impact of these legacies on policies and legislation today. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Summer School, the 2017 program will also feature special events including an alumni conference and cultural excursions.

This course addresses the dimensions of race and ethnic relations that are unique to Europe, examining the ways in which conceptions of the “other” are institutionalized and reproduced: the rise of xenophobia in various EU countries; issues such as global racisms, everyday racism, and epistemic racism; the legal definitions and discourse surrounding the conceptualized “other”; and the ways in which each country has dealt with issues of race and national identity. Issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality are central analytics, and scholars from the social sciences and humanities and NGOs working against racism and xenophobia in Europe are encouraged to apply.


Applications due February 1, 2017.
