Challenging Anti-Black racism and white normativity: Postcolonial reflections on Angelo Soliman and our understanding of racism, cultural representation, and Othering
This is a live-broadcast of a webinar taking place in Newman D422, UCD.

The main aim of this talk is to provide a historically grounded examination of contemporary and historical media representations of Angelo Soliman and demonstrate how a critical Postcolonial reading and analysis of the racist representations ascribed to him during his life as a Black man in 18th century Vienna and after his death can help us to understand the white normative underpinnings/roots and the persistence of anti-Black racism in Modern Europe, investigate it in its historical and contemporary forms, and in relation to media, cultural representations and ‘Othering’. This working paper intends to go beyond being a new interpretation of Soliman and show how this case study has broader implications for our understanding of racism in the Modern world and its link to cultural representation and Othering.
