Join the Campus Weeks Virtual Lecture Series for a conversation with Ferda Ataman.

Ferda Ataman is a Berlin-based journalist, author, and diversity expert. She became known by her SPIEGEL column “Heimatkunde” and her book "Stop asking. I'm from here" in 2019. Ataman worked as journalist, headed the public relations work in the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, and set up “Media Service Integration,” an information platform for journalists on the topics of migration, integration, and asylum. She is chairwoman of the “New German Mediamakers,” association, which advocates for more diversity in the media. She also founded the NGO "neue deutsche organisationen" (New German Organizations), a network for post-migrant initiatives. In 2019 Ataman received the Julie and August Bebel Prize for innovative and emancipatory contributions to political education.

The lecture series is made possible by the support of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany Washington DC, the Programs of German, Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities, and the Center for Gender in Global Context at Michigan State University, and the Program of German and Scandinavian Studies at UMass Amherst.
