WS 2: Racism and Public Health: Questions from medical anthropology
14:30 – 16:30 CET
This workshop aims to introduce some questions from medical anthropology as they concern and intersect with public health and racism. How have public health practices (re)produced racism? What are ongoing colonial structures which might influence access to and outcomes of biomedical treatments in Europe?
These and related questions will be dealt with in conversation with practitioners and activists interested in public health.

WS 3: Critical Perspectives on Global Health: decolonial and intersectional framing to advance equity and justice in health
„Decolonisation is not a metaphor and decoloniality is not an end. Rather, it is a means, a segue, a process, a lens with multiple ends […]. We need to recognise that we have the agency to read, engage with, and apply decolonial theory, methodology and praxis for justice and equity. Decoloniality requires us to be brave at chipping away, disrupting and dismantling but we also need to be realigning, building, reimagining and transforming in very real and concrete ways.“ is what Shehnaz Munshi and Lance Louskieter wrote in this article. We are glad to be able to listen to Shehnaz and re-imagine concepts of health.
10:00 – 11:30 CET

WS 4: BIPoC Empowerment: Medical Hierarchies – not with me
14:30 – 16:00 CET
Bi_PoCs in medicine – they are rare, but they do exist and they’re rising in numbers. Yet the access into medicine is still not easy for BiPoCs: whether studying or training, many racialized individuals are facing a plethora of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. But why?
This workshop is for all BiPoCs in health care. The intention is to create a safe space where we can empower each other, deconstruct hierarchies, power dynamics, and racism, and share skills for dealing with them.
So feel free to drop by! I look forward to seeing you

*“White“ and „whiteness“, like „blackness“, do not denote a biological characteristic or skin colour, but a political and social construction. Whiteness refers to the dominant and privileged position within the power relationship of racism, which otherwise remains mostly unspoken and unnamed. Whiteness encompasses an unconscious concept of self and identity that shapes white people’s self-view and behaviour and relegates them to a privileged place in society in terms of, for example, access to resources.
*BIPoC = Black, Indigenous and People of Colour: The term People of Colour (PoC), in the singular Person of Colour, is a political self-designation of people who experience various forms of racism and are excluded from the dominant society. The term has long been used in the Anglo-American world as a term of resistance.
