Tracing Slavery in Bremen: Black Studies Beyond Empathic Ethnography
Sabine Broeck teaches Black Studies at the University of Bremen. Her research critiques the coloniality and anti-blackness of transatlantic modernity as a social formation and culture of (post) – enslavement. She is President of the international scholarly organization Collegium for African American Research (CAAR), as well as director of the University of Bremen Institute for Postcolonial and Transcultural Studies (INPUTS). Her two previous monographs are Der entkolonisierte Koerper (1988) and White Amnesia-Black Memory? American Women’s Writing and History (1999). She is currently at work on a book-length manuscript entitled: Gender and Anti-Blackness contracted with SUNY Press. For more information see http://www.fb10.uni-bremen.de/lehrpersonal/broeck.aspx.
