Dozent/in: Simone Beate Borgstede

wöchentlich | Montag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 04.04.2022 - 04.07.2022 | C 12.001

Inhalt: In Small island, Andrea Levy discusses the lives of four people in Britain during the Second World War and its aftermath. Two of them are a white British heterosexual couple, the other two are a Black heteroexual couple from Jamaica whose lives get entangled. The white Englishman defends the British Empire in India, the Black Jamaican joins the British Airforce to fight Nazi fascism. The white Englishwoman, daughter of a butcher, needs to emancipate herself from parents and husband and the Black Jamaican woman wants to make a different living as a teacher in Britain. They are differently positioned through gender, class and cultural background and they also position themselves differently against the everyday racism, classism and sexism of the society of the metropole in which they live.
