Judith Coffey/Vivien Laumann: Gojnomativität. Warum wir anders über Antisemitismus sprechen müssen
Book presentaion and discussion
Anti-Semitism and Jewish perspectives often represent a blank space in intersectional debates and debates about intersectionality. This book makes Jewish positions and experiences articulate and visible through the concept of goynormativity. It explores the relationship between Jewishness and whiteness, investigates the specific invisibility of Jews, and looks at debates about anti-Semitism and commemorative politics with a specific focus. "Gojnormativity" calls for a different way of speaking about anti-Semitism as well as the consistent and unconditional inclusion of Jews_Jewish women in intersectional discourses and policies. At the same time, the book is an engaging plea for solidarity-based and intersectional alliances and alliances.
