    Confronting Discrimination


The special collection Confronting Discrimination: Phenomenological and Genealogical Perspectives (edited by Michaela Bstieler, Andreas Oberprantacher, and Sergej Seitz) explores the productive aspects and limitations of the notion of discrimination for social criticism. The main idea is to link phenomenological and genealogical methodologies, for an appropriate understanding of discrimination must take into account both concrete experience and its historical dimensions. While phenomenological analyses run the risk of individualizing discrimination, genealogical analyses tend to reduce experiences of discrimination to their social-historical conditions. Juxtaposing phenomenology and genealogy allows for mutual instruction and heralds a more comprehensive understanding of discrimination in its many facets.
