Webinar series: Reflecting on German (Post)Colonial Connections

On September 2021, Dr. Minu Haschemi Yekani (Freie Universität Berlin), Dr. Dörte Lerp (Freie Universität Berlin) and Dr. Janne Lahti (University of Helsinki) are organizing a webinar series called Reflecting on German (Post)Colonial Connections. The webinar series consists of four events that build up the discussion on German colonial legacies.

 

The aim of this webinar series is to set out to bridge divides between the past and present, between different national histories, between academic specializations, and between academic and non-academic sectors. In short, the organizers intend to span temporal, national, epochal, and sectional divides. They take up recent debates on German colonial histories and legacies, and advance discussions on them in a transnational, multidisciplinary, and intersectional framing.

The webinar series consists of four events with separate registrations and links for Zoom. Download the webinar poster HERE.
