Book Launch July 5, 2018 in #Berlin- “Geschichte Schreiben” or “Writing History”

by Red Haircrow

Two of my poems, “The Color of Your Skin” and “Threatened by Beads” are included in this anthology of essays, art, poetry and more. First appearing in Red Ink International Journal’s special issue, Standing With Standing Rock (December 2016), my work was translated to German for this edition of Neue Rundschau, published by S. Fischer Verlag.

From the Facebook event page: Publication Launch of “Writing History”. Edited by Sharon Dodua Otoo and Manuela Bauche, who have asked writers, artists and academics about their vision of “writing history” for the latest edition of the magazine Neue Rundschau (S. Fischer Verlag).  As part of the symposium: “New Perspectives”. More information and registration details are available at the Xartsplitta website.

Synopsis: “Hegemonic historiographies – such as those about colonialism – are increasingly beginning to falter, are being rewritten and reperspectived. However, this does not happen by itself, but is also driven by the year-long struggles of activists, such as initiatives of Black people and other People of Colour. How can history be told differently? Is historical injustice comparable? Can history not also be decentered and complex?


Publikations-Launch von “Geschichte Schreiben”. Hg. von Sharon Dodua Otoo und Manuela Bauche. Im Rahmen des Symposiums: “Neue Perspektiven”
(www.xartsplitta.net/symposium-neue-perspektiven/)

“Hegemoniale Geschichtserzählungen – etwa über den Kolonialismus – geraten zuletzt zunehmend ins Wanken, werden umgeschrieben und neu perspektiviert. Das geschieht aber nicht von selbst, sondern wird auch durch die jahrelangen Kämpfe von Aktivist*innen, beispielsweise Initiativen Schwarzer Menschen und weiterer People of Colour, vorangetrieben. Wie lässt sich Geschichte anders schreiben? Ist historisches Unrecht vergleichbar? Lässt sich Geschichte nicht auch dezentriert und komplex erzählen?”
