Join us at 4:00 PM EST/3:00 PM CST on February 6, 2023, for a virtual discussion of two exciting
new books in German colonial history! 

In An Imperial Homeland author Adam Blackler (University of Wyoming) explores the creation of German identity in what is today Namibia while Matthew Unangst’s (SUNY-Oneonta) book Colonial Geography takes on the issues of race and territory in today’s Tanzania. This MZG New Books Series discussion broadens our considerations of recent German history to cover imperialist projects before the Third Reich and beyond Europe.

Each author will introduce their work in roughly 25 minute talks before commentary provided by Professor Michelle Moyd (Michigan State University). Audience Q&A will follow.

Co-Sponsored by the George L. Mosse Program in History, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of History, and the Zucker/Goldberg Center for Holocaust Studies at the College of Charleston.
