Summer School of the Herder Institute, September 26-29, 2022
Colonial cities, especially port cities, as well as border regions between empires have historically played a decisive role in the perception of colonial rule. They formed key transitional spaces in political, social, cultural, economic, administrative, military and religious conflicts and can be regarded as having held particularly prominent hinge positions with respect to the mobility—in some cases the limited mobility—of people, animals, goods, ideas, epidemics and much more.
The Summer School is organized by PD Dr. Heidi Hein-Kircher (Herder Institute) and Prof. Dr. Benedikt Stuchtey (Professor für Neuere Geschichte at Philipps University Marburg). More Information: email@example.com
