Course Description: The culture of remembrance in the Federal Republic of Germany is characterized by a critical handling of one's own past. Lately, German colonialism has become a point of controversy, as the arguments about the "Humboldt Forum" show. The seminar looks at the politics of memory in Germany, which has become an important field of action and career for political scientists. The course considers how the memory of National Socialism and colonialism has changed over the decades. The challenges of memorial sites and actors of political-historical education are covered along with the question of whether the politics of memory are about to be reoriented or whether the memory of colonial crimes should be embedded in the established culture of remembrance.
