Challenging Normality - hegemonial perspectives under scrutiny

Private E-team



Social work’s field of action in Germany comprises a large variety of different fields of practice. One common denominator is that they represent results of social-­‐politic compromises as well as an "archive of social conflicts" (Susanne Maurer). Within these, hegemonial positions are dominant. On this backdrop Social Work’s standard programmes mainly focus on able‐bodied, heterosexual and white German clients, thus excluding many other people.


Our didactic approach is not basically centred on discrimination but focuses on challenging social reality and power structures as well as Social Work’s practice from a post‐migrant (Shermin Langhoff), post‐heteronormative and post‐ableist perspective.
