Liebe im postkolonialen Zeitalter

Dr. Séverine Marguin | Daddy Dibinga Kalamba | Dr. Brenda Strohmaier

In Westafrika boomt ein Unterhaltungsgenre namens Afronovela. Wie in den lateinamerikanischen Telenovelas handelt es sich dabei um romantische Seifenopern, aber eben solche, die in Afrika spielen. Vor allem im Senegal und an der Elfenbeinküste hat sich eine eigene Industrie dazu entwickelt. Die französische Soziologin Séverine Marguin und der kongolesische Regisseur und Filmwissenschaftler Daddy Dibinga Kalamba untersuchen im Teilprojekt C06, wie in diesen Serien gelungenes Leben inszeniert wird.

„Bist du auch diesseits?“

Sung Un Gang

In der südkoreanischen Metropole Seoul drängen queere Menschen seit gut zwei Jahrzehnten immer stärker in die Öffentlichkeit. So hat es das Seoul Queer Culture Festival gegen etliche Widerstände auf den Rathausvorplatz geschafft, und im Stadtteil Mapo fand 2022 die erste Nachbarschafts-Pride-Veranstaltungen statt. Für solche raumgreifenden Veränderungen der LGBTQ-Bewegung interessiert sich Sung Un Gang, Mitarbeiter im Teilprojekt B03. Dabei geht es ihm nicht nur um bereits gut dokumentierte Prozesse, sondern er will auch wissen, wie queere Menschen durch ganz alltägliche Handlungen neue Räume schaffen und alte neu codieren.

Interrogating politics of mobility from an intersectional perspective

Paula Medina-García

As ontological or theoretical insight, methodological approach, analytical perspective, ethical standpoint and political praxis, intersectionality has shed light on how the entanglements of different regimes of power (sex/gender, race, ethnicity, age, class, etc.) shape experiences, processes of becoming and social relations. However, can intersectionality also address questions of space and geography? Why is it so important to bring together intersectionality and spatiality? How can we research intersectionality in political geography? This blogpost constitutes an attempt to answer all these queries drawing from the observed potential of intersectionality to delve into personal (and political) situated experiences of mobility through space.

“My City is a Battleground – Intersectionality and Urban Violence” | The CRC 1265’s 4th international conference

Lucie Bernroider

On 20th-21st of October the CRC 1265 held its fourth international conference, this year titled “My City is a Battleground – Intersectionality and Urban Violence”. After two years of COVID restrictions, we could finally meet in person again, which in itself provided a cause for celebration as participants pleased to mingle with new as well as familiar faces. This year’s theme followed up on the CRC’s interest in socio-spatial conflicts, looking at the way intersectional tensions accompany processes of urban spatial refiguration. Taking its inspiration from decades of research on social inequality, class struggles, migration, violence as well as from intersectional feminist work, the conference turned its attention to intersectional experiences of violence and the way conflicts manifest intersectionally in and through urban space.

Aesthetics of Resistance: The Ways of Spatializing Women’s Ecological Struggle in Turkey

Özden Senem Erol

The environmental movement of Turkey has three decades of history. A culture of resistance was transferred from the first women's ecological resistance that attracted attention in the Bergama peasant movement to today's struggling women.[1] One of the areas of resistance discussed in this article is the Mount Ida (Kazdağları) Resistance, which is one of the most reported ecological struggles in the press in recent years in Turkey. [2]  Global companies came to this significant area, within the borders of Turkey's Marmara and Aegean regions, to search for gold with cyanide and destroy some regions with the state's approval. Resistance temporarily stopped the destruction and cutting of trees in the area.

Harems: Navigating physical and intangible borders

Sanaa Asim

The mystery surrounding the harem has resulted in rumors of what life behind its high walls actually looks like. Images of beautiful women, sexual pleasure, endless overindulgence have been projected over the reality of this strictly maintained gendered space. It’s easy to dismiss its existence as an example of archaic gender boundaries which have no place in the 21st century. But why? By delving into historical reactions to the harem, we can explore how gendered spaces are constructed and how this bears on our understanding of “freedom”.

The Way of the Bikerni: Women and Motorbikes in Urban India

Maddalena Chiellini

Delhi is considered a dangerous city when it comes to women’s mobility. Episodes of violence like the bus gang-rape of 2012 are a symptom of a city inscribed with gender inequality, especially in relation to accessing public space. In this contribution, I explore the experiences and relationship with mobility of the members of a ladies-only motorcycle club, the Bikerni. By looking at their hardships and successes, this blog post aims to convey how biking is a conflagration point for more than just patriarchal relations of power.
