Orlanda Obad sudjelovala je na međunarodnoj interdisciplinarnoj radionici Struggles over Europe: Postcolonial East/West dynamics of race, gender and sexuality s izlaganjem „Gray is the New White: Intertwining of Race and Class in Workplace Practices of Croatian Citizens in EU Institutions“. Radionica je održana u Słubicama, u Poljskoj, od 14. do 15. 11. 2019.
The author examines the intertwining of race and class in the process of employment and work practices of officials working in various EU institutions in Brussels. She argues that Eastern Europeans should be considered representatives of grey class, and links it to various common conceptions of Eastern Europe: the color of the concrete of brutalist architecture from socialist perios, the dullness of the (post)socialist education, the murky grey zones of business practices.
