Anna-Esther Younes

Dr. Anna-Esther Younes is an independent researcher interested in Race Critical Theories, psychoanalysis, and Germany/Europe. Younes’ focus is on figurations of Jewishness and Muslimness and how they connect to racialising tropes around Blackness and Indigeneity in settler colonial contexts, as well as in Europe. She has written the Islamophobia Country Report on Germany for several years and coined the term “War on anti-Semitism” as a “secret-sharer” (Edward Said) of the “War on Terror” in her 2015 PhD “Race, Colonialism, and the Figure of the Jew” (IHEID). Her work can be found on or on her website.
