At home on campus? Perspectives on diversity policy and combating racism and contemporary exoticism

Last modified on 06-03-2024 11:05
It's important that everyone feel welcome, at home and respected on campus. But despite efforts to diversify our campus, feelings of isolation or othering remain a reality for many people. During the Week against Racism, the Central Diversity Office is organising an interactive workshop for all students and staff about racism and exoticism.

Oudemanhuispoort D.009

In this workshop, we invite speakers, guests and performers to discuss topics such as racism, modern-day exoticism, and various forms of othering. With their performance, theatre group DEGASTEN will provide a historical context, starting with the phenomenon of human zoos.

Together, we'll examine the effects of these practices and explore the role of education, research, and policies in enhancing a sense of belonging for members of our UvA community. 

The programme is in Dutch. Interpreters will be present to translate from Dutch to English.


  • Welcome and introduction, Machiel Keestra, UvA Central Diversity Officer 
  • Guest speaker Dr Mieke Lopes Cardozo, Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences
  • Performance by theatre group DEGASTEN. There will be space for reflection and dialogue afterwards.

During the programme we'll make space for participants who want to break their fast.
