On June 20, 2022, our teams of the subprojects “Voluntariness and Decolonization” and “Voluntariness and Dictatorship” – Carolyn, Iris, Elena and Christiane – welcome Swiss historian Sandrine Kott (University of Geneva) for a workshop and evening lecture at the Forschungskolleg Transkulturelle Studien in Gotha.
Iris Schröder is Professor of Modern Global History at the University of Erfurt and Director of the Gotha Centre for Transcultural Studies/Perthes Collection. Her research interests include history of science and history of knowledge, focusing on cultural histories of cartography, histories of globalization, and histories of (post-)colonialism. She has also worked on historiographical issues including international history, spatial history, visual history, and the challenges of writing global history. Her recent publications include “Eine Weltkarte aus der Provinz” (in Historische Anthropologie 2017).
