Extended deadline - Holocaust Testimonies and their Afterlives - Summer University

February 22, 2024

The main aim of the summer course is to examine if, when, and how citizenship regimes are used by authoritarian and illiberal governments as a means of weakening the rights of undesired populations and to include targeted groups to strengthen the legitimacy and the power of the government. In addition to exploring citizenship politics and legislation in times of democratic decline, the course will also investigate the micro-politics of citizenship by looking into how individuals use, respond to, hijack, or ignore these policies. Such an approach springs from the need to address two main intellectual challenges, which are rooted in the relationship between democracy and citizenship.
