We are pleased to announce two upcoming talks by Research Group Leader Nina Schneider. Both events correspond to the research interests of the Centre and engage with themes which contribute a unique perspective on academic engagement in an increasingly interconnected world.
On Wednesday, December 1st, Nina will present ‘Gobineau’s Race Theory in the Americas: On the Reception History of the Essai sur l'inégalité des races humaines’. The talk is a contribution to the ongoing lecture series ‘Xenophobia and Racism in History’ organized by the History Department at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Those interested in participating remotely are asked to email the organizers directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
