Join us for a discussion with Obenewaa Oduro-Opuni, a leading scholar in Black German Studies and an expert in abolitionist currents of thought. She will be discussing her latest research exploring the late 18th century and early 19th century white German dramatic genre Sklavenstücke (slave plays). Sklavenstücke are understood to articulate a nuanced critique of slavery and the transatlantic slave trade and thus serve as a transnational contribution within the larger discursive abolitionist context.
