Upcoming Spark Session: Dr. Diana Natermann


We are thrilled to invite you to our upcoming Spark Session with Dr. Diana Natermann on 22 May 2024, 11.30 - 12.30  at The Plant, Faculty of Art & Social Sciences, Grote Gracht 76, ground floor (follow the signs). Access via the main entrance building at Grote Gracht 90-92.

In her discussion, Dr. Diana Natermann will address colonial photography in its digital form, and how these can be linked with issues of restitution and cultural genocide. 

About the speaker: Before joining the WONAGO Project team at Hamburg University, Dr Diana Miryong Natermann was an Assistant Professor at Leiden University in the International Relations and Global Orders track. Her PhD thesis, titled Pursuing Whiteness in the Colonies. Private Memories from the Congo Free State and German East Africa (1884-1914) was published in 2018 and was also a finalist in the Waterloo Centre for German Studies Book Prize. Currently, she is working on two projects that centre Namibia, South Africa and the Congo. One project engages with the long-term effects of colonial photographic visualisations and the creation of racial and racist stereotypes, and the second addresses colonial photography in its digital form and will be the focus of this Spark Session

We encourage you to join us in learning more about Diana’s fascinating research and contribute to the discussion! Please let us know if you plan on coming via email. We hope to see you there!

Best regards,
