All interested colleagues are invited to attend Exiled Scholars and ‘Academic Humanitarianism’: Conjunctures of Solidarity in Times of Global Crises, an upcoming international crisis at the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany. The event is in-person and will take place on May 13, 2024, from 10:00 – 18:00 (CEST).

The conference will discuss with experts from Germany and abroad about the structural conditions, institutional innovations and current challenges in the context of opening up universities and the academic system to at-risk and exiled scholars. Participants will critically reflect on the concept of “academic humanitarianism” and the impact of novel constellations of power/knowledge on discourses, institutional actors, and structures of funding in academia. Finally, we also ask whether we can envision alternative imaginaries of solidarity with exiled scholars, defined by broader transformative struggles around social and epistemic justice in higher education.
