Bullying, shaming or hate speech: our present day is characterized by various forms of discrimination or exclusion of individuals and groups of people. They are aimed at ethnic, religious, gender or physical factors and construct a supposed boundary between 'us' and 'the others'. Even in the Middle Ages, people were discriminated or deliberately excluded from social structures on the basis of their origin, religion, gender, language or other categories. The diversity of medieval sources and the social complexity of the time make it possible to develop new perspectives on the dynamics of social interaction and forms of exclusion.The advanced course starts here and examines the framework conditions, dimensions and consequences of discrimination and social exclusion in a European comparison. Actors as well as affected groups, legal measures to legitimize exclusion and finally contemporary reflections will be discussed.

Room: Schellingstr. 12 - K 226

Faculty/Institution: Faculty of History and Art Sciences, Prof. Dr. Julia Burkhardt

Target Group: Students, max. 15 participants

Registration required via LSF.

The question of how we treat people, regardless of their origin and status, colour, gender, sexual orientation or faith, is one of the fundamental questions of our society. We are confronted with exclusion, discrimination and racism in our everyday lives. The lecture series of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies takes up this fact and examines forms of discrimination and racism in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.In weekly lectures, experts from LMU and external guests will present approaches from various disciplines. They will ask what forms of social exclusion can be observed in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, whether "racism" is an analytically helpful term for phenomena of exclusion in the pre-modern period and to what extent exclusion and constructs of alterity contributed to social self-assurance. The lectures will be followed by an opportunity for discussion.

Room: Schellingstr. 3 (S) - S 001

Target Group: Students, all members of LMU

Program available here (German).

The "Initiative 10drei" has developed an easy-to-implement format for school classes to ensure that young people are aware of our fundamental rights and, in particular, of the values behind them: As part of "GrundgeSÄTZE - unsere Grundrechte von und für Schüler:innen", young people formulate the value statements of our fundamental rights in their own words. Under the patronage of the Federal Chancellor, 10drei was awarded by "startsocial" as a national award winner. In the workshop, the participants first try out the format, which draws on innovative methods from Design Thinking, and then reflect on didactic and methodological opportunities and challenges as well as their role as teachers.
