May 16th, 4-6 p.m. at the Max-Weber-Center at the University of Erfurt, Seminarraum
Bernhard Schär has published extensively on Swiss colonial history and on colonialism and imperialism in general. His work departs from a global and entangled history perspective and engages in methodological and theoretical reflections on the possibilities and difficulties such approaches imply (also beyond the “case” of Switzerland). Such discussions will also be the main topic of our workshop with him in Erfurt. A special focus will be on the question of how historians (and other people interested in histories (of the present))can combine in their analysis a global history perspective with an intersectionality approach that investigates how different systems of oppression that are constituted along axes of differences such as gender, race and class, interlock.
We will discuss secondary literature – texts written by Bernhard Schär and other historians – but also source material.
