A critical examination of phenomena and trans­formations of political violence also requires conversations with those individuals and groups who experience violence. The lecture series at the Center for Gender Studies and Feminist Futures Studies at the Philipps University Marburg there­fore opens up a space for an inter­disciplinary exchange between academics and activists.

The lecture series is affiliated with TraCe. It is co-organized by TraCe researcher Mariel Reiss and ties in with her research in Research Area 3. Topics from the TraCe lecture series of the winter semester 2022/23 will also be addressed. Some lectures are also part of the Pretoria-Marburg Queer Conversations (PMQC).

Every Tuesday afternoon, internationally renowned researchers present their work and report on their research projects. The lecture series will be held in person and in English. There will be Livestreams of the lectures on our YouTube channel.
