Institutskolloquium: Memory in urban spaces
Dienstag, 23.01.18, 16.15 Uhr, Institut für Europäische Ethnologie, Möhrenstr. 40/41:

Memory in urban spaces: Postsocialist and postcolonial perspectives on the relevance of street names and their renaming.

In particular in times of regime changes we experience the renaming of streets. But also at other times activists lobby for (not) changing street names. In the discussion we look at the relevance of street names and the reasons for (not) renaming them from a postsocialist and postcolonial perspective. Moving between Maputo and Berlin as well as between (post)colonial, (post)nationalsocialist and (post)socialist times, we try to capture the importance of street names and the struggles (not) to change them.

M. Dores Cruz will walk with us through the streets of Maputo, while Joshua Kwesi Aikins will talk about struggles around street names in Berlin. Urmila Goel moderates the discussion.
