This workshop will aim at discussing doctoral students' research related to alterity, racialization and ethnicization processes, and/or structural racism from a postcolonial and/or decolonial perspective. The areas covered as research fields will be Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, while the focus will be on discourse and image analysis. Discussions will also touch upon intersectional analysis to account for the multiple social dimensions (class, gender, sexuality, religion, etc.) and their combined effects.

The two days will be declined into "presentations-discussions" supervised by expert guests from different disciplinary background of human and social sciences. Each participant will be actively involved in the discussions and given the choice to either present and send a 2-page thesis summary OR give a 5-7 min detailed feedback to a presenter.

In order for this workshop to provide concrete solutions, papers will be sent beforehand and presenters will be invited to share their questionings and difficulties on methodological or theoretical aspects. The invited experts will also present their own work and discuss the doctoral students' presentations.
