As anthropologists, we know how inequalities and exclusions based on gender, sexuality, social origin, health, ethnicity, religious affiliation, racialized categories such as skin color, migration experience, national origin, language or other differentiations reach deep into everyday life—also into the everyday life of the university. Our institute is also a reflection of society and not free of power relations. In order to counteract discriminatory structures and experiences, there are various offices and contact persons at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität that you can turn to. Since it may sometimes be easier to first approach fellow students or to knock on the doors of the teaching staff at your own institute, we would like to invite you to approach us if you experience discrimination or observe such situations. We are not professionally trained in this field, but we are available as a first point of contact and will be happy to provide some leads and contacts in specific cases. Also, if you have ideas or initiatives to make our institute discrimination-free and proactive on issues of discrimination, please do contact us. Together, let us create a congenial, fair, and inclusive atmosphere for learning.
