This fall, the Amsterdam Centre for Middle Eastern Studies (ACMES), in co-operation with the Amsterdam School for Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES), organises an online lecture series on Race, racism and racialisation in the Middle East and Europe. The series is inspired by the global Black Lives Matter protest movement. The various lectures explore the complexities of race, racism and racialization, their intersections with other inequalities, and emerging spaces of resistance and solidarity.

All lectures take place online via Zoom.
