In German with simultaneous English translation
Can a national history be told without taking the narratives of human mobility into account? The second panel on History and Representation asks about the institutionalization of history.
Cultural scholar Aleida Assmann, historians Ute Frevert and Mirjam Zadoff and migration researcher Jochen Oltmer discuss historical condensations, political abbreviations and shifts in remembrance culture in Germany after 1945. What political and cultural identities were promoted, what historical references were given meaning and what national self-understandings were strengthened? And what histories and experiences were lost in the process?
Moderated by Stefanie Schüler-Springorum (historian)
Followed by a Q&A
