International Symposium - University of Edinburgh
September 13th, 2012
This day long interdisciplinary symposium, to be held at the University of Edinburgh on September 13th, will explore the (dis)continuities of cultural narratives of race and its surrounding discourses in 19th and 20th century German history. Further objectives are to investigate the impact of race on popular cultural narratives and vice versa, to identify implicit mechanisms of appropriation in cultural production, and to question the use race as a monolithic conceptual framework for understanding or conceiving of a German nation and people.
We are very pleased to announce a keynote lecture by Tina Campt, Professor of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Barnard College.
