Getting Respect in Germany
How People Respond to Racism & Antisemitism
Kultur-, Sozial- und Bildungswissenschaftliche Fakultät
The research papers in this book are united around one core question: How do People Respond to Racism and Antisemitism in Germany? This question in itself is rather controversial in Germany, as "racism” is still a debated concept for many Germans. Some Germans commonly may say Anti-Black Racism in the US, the concept seems to be non-existent in the German context. Some others may say that “racism” was a concept of the WWII, and contemporary forms of racism are not immediately equal to “racism.” Another commonly recognized idea is that antisemitism, hatred toward Jews, is a specific phenomena on its own, and cannot be discussed in relation to racism (see also Yurdakul 2006). Yet, one must recognize that, like every context, German society has its own socio-historically developed cultural repertoires about racism (Bonilla-Silva, 1997; Lamont et al, 2016) and about antisemitism (Arnold, 2018). These cultural repertoires are not interpreted homogeneously among all the members of German society. The research articles in this book investigate how immigrants and minorities in Germany are affected by processes of racialization, racism, and antisemitism in Germany and how they respond to them.
