BOOK PRESENTATION „DIE HABEN GEDACHT, WIR WAREN DAS” (PAPY ROSSA VERLAG) AND „URTEILE“ (UNRAST VERLAG) / TALK WITH PROF. KEMAL BOZAY AND PROF. BILGIN AYATA
Kemal Bozay is the co-editor of „Die haben gedacht, wir waren das“ (They thought it was us). The book documents narratives about the NSU and racism, which have been developed from the perspective of migrants living in Germany. „Urteile“, a book in which an article by Bilgin Ayata „Silencing The Present“ appeared, also proceeds from this point of view. The author describes how „means of silencing“ in the „official“ discourse on the NSU have led to a very restricted form of appraisal. In the discussion, the two academics will report on their work and explain the specifics of (post-) migrant and postcolonial criticism in the public debate on the NSU.
