Institute for Historical Research, London, Modern German History Seminar
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 event in the 2020/21 IHR Modern German History Seminar series. Featuring Robbie Aitken (Sheffield Hallam University), Tiffany Florvil (University of New Mexico), Kira Thurman (University of Michigan) and Philipp Khabo Koepsell (independent scholar), with Jeff Bowersox (UCL) as moderator.
