Since the discussion on "Computer-Inder" and the campaign "Kinder statt Inder" in the year 2000, migration from India to Germany has gained public focus.

In the book "InderKinder," children of Indian immigrants - who themselves are no longer children but many of whom have children of their own - write about growing up and living as an "InderKind" in Germany. Their autobiographical stories and scientific essays provide diverse insights into stories of migration that nearly nobody has heard about, into processes of being "made different" and the sometimes more and sometimes less self-conscious use of attributions.

Chaired by Yasemin Shooman, director, academy programs

Prior to the reading and discussion, we asked the two editors, Nisa Punnamparambil-Wolf and Urmila Goel, three questions. You can read their answers on our blog, Blogerim.
