Abstract

How is photography connected to global practices? This is a first edited collection to trace the relationship between history, photography and memory in a global perspective on three interrelated levels: firstly, in the artistic and cultural production of pictures, secondly, in the decoding of colonial and contemporary photography, and thirdly, in collecting photographs in picture archives dealing with colonial and anthropological photography. The contributions sketch the contested field of (post-)colonial photography and trace the manifold intertwinements between historical and contemporary photographs.

Abstract

Gewürdigt wird das Lebenswerk des Missionars und Völkerkundlers Stephan Lehner (1877-1943), der heute noch von den Menschen am Huongolf in Neuguinea als »Kulturbringer« in Ehren gehalten wird. Besonderen Wert legt der Autor, ein Nachfahre Lehners, auf die anschauliche Dokumentation der ethnologischen Arbeiten und Sammlungen Lehners. So lässt dieser reich bebilderte Band zugleich ein lebendiges Bild der melanesischen Kultur in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts entstehen.

Abstract

Parallel to the abolition of Atlantic slavery, new forms of indentured labour stilled global capitalisms need for cheap, disposable labour. The famous coolie trade – mainly Asian labourers transferred to French and British islands in the Indian Ocean, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, the Caribbean, the Americas, as well as to Portuguese colonies in Africa – was one of the largest migration movements in global history. Indentured contract workers are perhaps the most revealing example of bonded labour in the grey area between the poles of chattel slavery and free wage labour. This interdisciplinary volume addresses historically and regionally specific cases of bonded labour relations from the 18th century to sponsorship systems in the Arab Gulf States today.

Abstract

Der wissenschaftliche Rassismus untermauerte seine Theorien durch eine ungeheure Knochensammlung, deren Beschaffung im 19. Jahrhundert eine regelrechte Skelettomanie auslöste. Die Jagd nach den Gebeinen der anderen missachtete jede Pietät. Sie störte die Totenruhe, raubte Leichen und schändete die Körper Verstorbener, deren Überreste zur Konstruktion typischer Rassenkörper dienten. Sie sollten Devianz gegenüber der weißen Norm demonstrieren - ihre öffentliche Zurschaustellung visualisierte und popularisierte die Rassentheorien und erlaubte den Betrachtern die Akkumulation rassistischen symbolischen Kapitals. Die Beiträge des Bandes untersuchen diesen Prozess an den Beispielen von Angelo Soliman, Sarah Baartman, El Negro und Truganini.

Abstract

To justify the plundering of todays Democratic Republic of the Congo, U.S. intellectual elites have continuously produced dismissive Congo discourses. Tracing these discourses in great depth and breadth for the first time, Johnny Van Hove shows how U.S. intellectuals (and their influential European counterparts) have been using the Congo in similar fashions for their own goals. Analyzing intellectuals as diverse as W.E.B. Du Bois, Joseph Conrad, and David Van Reybrouck, the book offers a theorization of Central West Africa, a case study of normalized narratives on the »Other«, and a stirring wake up call for all contemporary writers on international history and politics.
