Black Lives Matter in German History Seminar


Wednesday, October 14th

hosted by Institute of Historical Research 

School of Advanced Study University of London


Research in Black German Studies has been underway for decades, but this year has seen new urgency and wider attention, partially triggered by the Black Lives Matter movement in the US and partially by homegrown violence and racism against minorities in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Our role as researchers and educators in this context and how broader survey modules can integrate this rich subdiscipline are subject of this first event in the IHR Modern German History Seminar series. Join us on 14 October 2020 (5:30pm-7:00pm BST) for a panel discussion with academics and activists in Black German Studies. The speakers Robbie Aitken (Sheffield Hallam University), Tiffany Florvil (University of New Mexico), Kira Thurman (University of Michigan), Philipp Khabo Koepsell (Independent scholar).
