Highlights of the year 2022-2023

The Centre for Atlantic and Global Studies continued to expand its activities in 2022-23 as part of its research networks. Numerous lectures, guest visits and research trips were undertaken through the Centre for Advanced Latin American Studies (CALAS), the collaborative project ConnecCaribbean / Connected Worlds, and the collaborative project CHER - Cultural Heritage as Resource?, in cooperation with the Leibniz Research Centre Inclusive Citizenship, and the school education project Empowering Young Language Brokers for Inclusion in Diversity. The multi-year research project IberLAND: Beyond Property. Law and Land in the Iberian World (1510-1850) is newly associated with CEAGS. The international symposium Dealing with Violence: Resolving Conflicts in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean took place with numerous participants from abroad. Several young scholars from Germany and abroad are expanding the CEAGS network, among others with the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship of Dr. Cary Aileen García Yero (Black Art in Cold War: Race, Power, and the Cuban-Eastern Socialist Bloc Art Exchanges, 1961-1989) and a DAAD-Alecosta Programme grant of Alexia Ugade (Activismo feminista y cambio social en América Central). Since the beginning of the year, the CEAGS is linked to the Käthe Hamburger Kolleg "Center for Global Cooperation Research" through the Senior Research Fellowship of Prof. Dr. Christine Hatzky.
