The legacy of German colonialism still lives on today: recent debates on the “refugee issue”, the handling of stolen art, the rise of nationalist parties, do not reveal the core, but symptomatic facets of a much more deeply rooted Eurocentric world view that springs from a history of colonization.
How can German colonial history be classified? In what forms does it live on in today’s structures? How can successful decolonization look like? How do we overcome racist thought patterns? What can we do to broaden our view and show solidarity with various global struggles for social justice?
We, the Zugvögel e.V. – Regionalgruppe Lüneburg and the Leuphana African Students Organization, would like to address these questions together as part of our lecture series.
The lecture series will take place as an online webinar with interaction possibilities. For this purpose we use the provider Zoom. The following link will take you to all lectures on every Tuesday at 18:25.
