Buchlesung mit Klaus Neumann

Veröffentlicht am 17. April 2024

Am 06. Mai findet die Buchlesung von Klaus Neumann "Blumen und Brandsätze" im Buchladen Eulenspiegel (Hagenbruchstr. 7, 33602 Bielefeld) stattt. Der Eintritt ist frei. Es wird um eine rechtzeitige Reservierung gebeten.

In seinem Buch untersucht der Historiker die unterschiedlichen Motivationen, Schutz zu gewähren oder Schutzsuchende abzuweisen. Im Mittelpunkt seiner Betrachtung stehen dabei lokale und lokalpolitische Auseinandersetzungen: Im Westen Hamburgs und im südöstlichen Sachsen. Er macht anschaulich, wie sehr Aushandlungsprozesse um die lokale Aufnahme von DDR-Übersiedler*innen und Asylsuchenden, Aussiedler*innen und Kriegsgeflüchteten verquickt waren mit Debatten über Rassismus und Rechtsextremismus, demokratische Teilhabe sowie west- und ostdeutsche Identitäten.

Im Gespräch mit dem Autor soll im Rahmen der Veranstaltung versucht werden auch die Verhältnisse in Bielefeld in den Blick zu nehmen und somit einen lokalen Bezug der Untersuchung herzustellen.

Documentary Screening: ‘And Miles to Go Before I Sleep’

Veröffentlicht am 4. Oktober 2023

On October 10th he Understanding Asia Colloquium Series continues with th screening of the documentary `And Miles to Go Before I Sleep´. It will take place from 16 to 18 in X-E-0-226 and can also be joined via Zoom. For registration click here.  

Nguyen Quoc Phi was an undocumented migrant worker, or a ‘runaway’, in northern Taiwan before he was shot nine times by the police and left unattended by the paramedics on 31 August 2017. What made him ‘run away’ from his factory work? How did he find jobs in various construction sites? Why did he start taking drugs? Was he an imperfect victim? These are straightforward questions leading to complicated answers. The award-winning documentary And Miles to Go before I Sleep brings to the fore the nakedness of discrimination and the challenges to humanity if we choose to be bystanders indifferent to inequality and injustice

The content of the documentary includes violent scenes, and the topics under discussion may be stressful for some viewers. 

Film length: 90 Minutes

Q&A and Knowledge Co-Production Activity: 30 Minutes

Director: Tsai Tsung-lung, National Chung Cheng University

Tsai Tsung-Lung is an Associate Professor at the Department of Communications of the National Chung Cheng University and works as an independent documentary producer and director. He takes a humanist approach to his works concerning human rights, environmental crisis, and cultural diversities. Tsai endeavored to promote the visibility and understanding of documentaries and, as a lecturer, has dedicated to training filmmaking amongst students and amateurs. Some of his recent works were collaborated with his Vietnamese spouse, Nguyen Kim Hong, concentrating on migrant spouses and workers in Taiwan, such as See You, Lovable Strangers that recorded the hardships of Vietnamese farmworkers. His film My Imported Wife was archived in the Museum of Television and Radio in New York. Sunflower Occupation, the latest film produced by Tsai, was selected in the New Asian Currents item in the 2015 Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival.

Coordinator: Dr. Isabelle Cockel (University of Portsmouth) and Huy Tran (Bielefeld University) 

Dr. Isabelle Cockel is Senior Lecturer in East Asian and International Development Studies at the University of Portsmouth. Her research focuses on labour and marriage migration in East Asia. She is particularly interested in how the state instrumentalises immigration for political economic interests. Her publications focus on sovereignty, citizenship, gender, activism, and irregular work in the informal labour market. Enacting upon her commitment to academic activism, she utilises academic blogs to raise public awareness of inequality and injustice embedded in labour migration. 

Dr. Huy Tran is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Faculty of Sociology, Bielefeld University. His research pays attention to the several patterns and aspects of transnational migration in East Asia and the Vietnamese migrant community in Japan. He also has an interest on the sexual and gender dimension in transnational migration, migration brokerage and the migration industry.
