Antrittsvorlesung von Dr. Tove Malloy

Kategorien: Ringvorlesungen und Kolloquien

While minority-majority relations are usually linked to conflict and protection in academic research, there is emerging evidence that contemporary minority narratives speak to new discourses and thus challenge the paradigm of peaceful co-existence. Through the lens of discursive formation, new discourses may be identified around other notions of stability, such as cohesion and citizenship rather than forceful state control. In so doing, they are perhaps replacing the notions of security and justice by democratizing minority-majority relations through new norm-setting. Alternatively, they may simply be reiterating the previous aims of state control cloaked in new contexts. This lecture will focus on ethno-cultural groups linked to the formation of the ‘nation-state’ system in Europe, i.e. national, linguistic and religious minorities. It will discuss the legacy of peaceful co-existence as the predominant paradigm for minority-majority social and political relations in democratized and democratizing societies in the 21st Century. It will question whether there is evidence of an emerging paradigm shift in minority-majority relations that might put us on a track of both a new research agenda on ethno-cultural issues and perhaps a new understanding of diversity management.
