Die Konferenz "Remapping Black Germany. New Perspectives on Afro-German History, Politics, and Culture" findet von 21. bis 23. April an der University of Massachusetts Amherst statt: "The disparate and fragmented histories of Black men and women in Germany long created a barrier to the recognition of the commonalities among Black Germans as subjects of their own history and historiography. Beginning in the early 1980s Black Germans have not only begun to form a new Black German cultural movement but also to rewrite German history from a Black perspective. Since its inauguration, the project of recovering the Black presence in Germany has given rise to an array of methodological approaches that draw inspiration from African-American Studies, feminism, literary theory, anthropology, and cultural studies".
