Highlights of the year 2023-2024

The Centre for Atlantic and Global Studies further expanded its activities in 2023-24 as part of its research networks. Numerous lectures, guest residencies and research trips were organised via the Center for Advanced Latin American Studies (CALAS)  and the ConnecCaribbean / Connected Worlds project.  Associated with CEAGS are, for example, the postdoctoral programme with African universities Knowledge for Tomorrow: Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities in Sub-Saharan and North Africa, the multi-year research project IberLAND: Beyond Property. Law and Land in the Iberian World (1510-1850), the Emmy Noether Junior Research Group "Hollywood Memories. Cinematic Remaking and the Construction of Global Movie Generations" and the projects "Global Situation Analysis on the Health of Indigenous Peoples", funded by the WHO, and "Ethnographic and anthropological war booty from military expeditions in German East Africa as collection items for German museums", funded by the German Lost Art Foundation.

Several young researchers from Germany and abroad are expanding the CEAGS network, including through 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), a DAAD-Alecosta Programme grant for Alexia Ugade (Activismo feminista y cambio social en América Central) and the IberLand-affiliated postdoctoral fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for Dr Íñigo Ena Sanjuán, (Pyrenean Pastures located between Spain and France).
