The format includes an impulse with discussion, in which the participants can take part via chat. The talks get a special dynamic through the moderation of different experts. The International Talks are open to all students, colleagues and interested persons, especially including international students.
Postcolonial Perspectives on Colonial and Mission History. Responses from West Africa
Thursday, 18th of January, 2024, 6 pm
This International Talk wants to focus on the difficult relationship between German colonial and mission history using the example of the West African country Togo.
It will provide an overview of the religious and cultural impact of missionary activities up to the present day. Using concrete cases from Togo, these questions will be discussed and linked to the current discussion about the restitution of religious cultural artefacts. For European Christianity, now is the time to come to terms with this heritage and to learn from each other.
Dr. Kokou Azamede teaches at the University of Lomé/Togo and is DAAD-Grimm-Prize winner 2022. He will report on his current research on the interconnection between colonialism and mission and discuss with the participants how Christianity can deal with its colonial heritage.
