Join the Nanovic Institute as it continues its series on Decolonizing Scholarship with a lecture titled "The Possibilities and Limits of Decolonizing Anthropology: Ethics, Methods, and Blind Spots." All Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students are invited to join us for this lunch-time lecture advancing the ongoing scholarly dialogue of this series.

About the Speaker

Nitzan Shoshan is a cultural anthropologist and professor at the Centro de Estudios Sociológicos at El Colegio de México in Mexico City. His work has focused on nationalism, populism, and right-wing extremism in Germany and beyond, on urban politics and governance in Berlin and Mexico City, and more recently on political conflict in Latin America. His prize-winning book The Management of Hate: Nation, Affect, and the Governance of Right-Wing Extremism in Germany (Princeton University Press, 2016) is an ethnographic study of young nationalists in Berlin’s eastern peripheries. Shoshan has written on the ethics of ethnographic research, on the politics of hate and Islamophobia in Europe, on post-Fordist affect and the temporality of loss, and on urban activism and the semiotics of the cityscape, among other topics. His most recent projects have examined notions of Heimat (home, homeland) in German nationalism and political polarization in Mexico.

About the Series

The Nanovic Institute, with its strategic emphasis on “peripheries” and de-centering the center, is committed to fostering research and teaching that presents European studies in a new light. The Nanovic Institute is pleased to announce our fall 2023 lecture series, Decolonizing Scholarship. This series will feature scholars from various academic disciplines at the top of their fields engaging issues in disciplines including Philosophy, Theology, French and Francophone Studies, Ethnic Studies, and more.
