DFG-Programme: Minor Cosmopolitanisms
16 new DFG-Programmes: One new post graduate programme is „Minor Cosmopolitanisms“.
The concept of “cosmopolitanism” brings to mind ideas of world travel, polyglotism and the simultaneous attachment to multiple places, as well as notions of hospitality, human rights and the love of mankind. Apart from such generalization however, there has never been much agreement about what exactly is to be counted as “cosmopolitan”.
The graduate programme will focus on a range of ‘discrepant’ forms of cosmopolitan citizenship and belonging that have been the reality for colonial subjects in the past and have become the contemporary reality for millions of migrants as well as Indigenous people around the globe.
