Webinar series "Reflecting on German (Post)Colonial Connections"
News vom 24.08.2021
On September 9, 2021, Minu Haschemi Yekani, Dörte Lerp (Freie Universität Berlin) and Janne Lahti (University of Helsinki) are launching a webinar series called "Reflecting on German (Post)Colonial Connections".
Further dates of this series are: September 14 (Beyond Collections: Decolonizing Museums), September 23 (Colonial Heritage as Political, Private and Public Memories) and September 30 (The (Post-)Colonial Dimension of German Migration History)
The webinar series consists of four events that build up the discussion on German colonial legacies. With this webinar series, we set out to reflect on, and bridge divides between the past and present, between different national histories, between academic specializations, and between academic and non-academic sectors. In short, we intend to span temporal, national, epochal, and sectional divides. We take up recent debates on German colonial histories and legacies and advance discussions in a transnational, multidisciplinary, and intersectional framing.
The first webinar on September 9 is called "Among Empires: German Entanglements in the Colonial and Postcolonial Worlds." We hear Tiffany Florvil (Albuquerque), Diana Natermann (Leiden), and Andrew Zimmerman (New York) as presenters in the first webinar. Minu Haschemi Yekani (Berlin), Dörte Lerp (Berlin) and Janne Lahti (Helsinki) will moderate the discussion.
Everybody is welcome to attend, registration is necessary.
