At the book launch the editors will take this great opportunity to give an insight into the trilingual publication (in German, English and French) and exchange ideas with the invited authors.

Remnants of colonialism continue to mark the social norms still found in school curricula and textbooks today. These ties to the past find expression within structural racism as experienced by so many school children every day—in the schoolyard, in countless classroom interactions, and through that which is not revealed, spoken or conveyed. This anthology explores these colonial continuities and their effects on discourse, imagery, and the politics of language. Embedded in the arts, education, and social sciences, the authors aim to counter these persistences through alternative representations and striking new perspectives.

The discussion will be held in English.
