Throughout March to May 2022, the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University is hosting an interdisciplinary lecture series on identity, membership, and normativity. This series is a part of the research project “A Sense of Belonging” led by Associate Professor Marion Godman and funded by the Sapere Aude/Research leader grant from the Independent Research Fund in Denmark.
There will be six guest speakers. Each speaker will give a public lecture and then partake in a workshop the following day. Normally, the public lectures will occur on Monday evenings and the workshops on the following Tuesday. We invite scholars interested in participating in the workshop to submit an abstract by the 1st of February 2022. For details, please see below.
Members of certain groups are often granted special rights. Members of a gender may be the recipients of affirmative action, members of indigenous groups can be entitled special language and land rights, and membership in certain nationalities can count as grounds to be prioritized – or demoted – in immigration. But only certain types of membership seem to have such a moral standing. Our project – A Sense of Belonging: The cultural-historical roots of group rights– enquires into the nature of membership with a moral significance and its role in political theorising.
