INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH COLLOQUIUM OF THE CENTRE FOR ATLANTIC AND GLOBAL STUDIES

The interdisciplinary colloquium is the central forum for discussion for the master programme Atlantic Studies in History, Culture and Society. The thematic focus of the master programme is discussed in this forum, namely the entanglements between Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe.

In the upcoming semester the following topics are going to be examined: transatlantic slave trade, gender relations, migration processes, land seizure and politics of remembrance.

Apart from content-related debates the colloquium offers the opportunity to discuss practical questions. This creates an exceptional possibility for students to receive support in choosing, revising and furthering their own master theses.
