On September 9, 2021, Minu Haschemi and Dörte Lerp (Freie Universität Berlin) and 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.
With this webinar series, we 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, we intend to span temporal, national, epochal, and sectional divides. We take up recent debates on German colonial histories and legacies, and advance discussions on them in a transnational, multidisciplinary, and intersectional framing.
The first webinar is called “Among Empires: German Entanglements in the Colonial and Postcolonial Worlds”. We hear Tiffany Florvil (Albuquerque), Diana Natermann (Leiden) and Andrew Zimmerman (New York) as presenters in the first webinar. Minu Haschemi (Berlin), Dörte Lerp (Berlin) and Janne Lahti (Helsinki) will moderate the discussion.

Time: 6PM-8PM Berlin time (CEST), 7PM-9PM Helsinki time (GMT+3)
