We are pleased to announce that our partners at the Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies will also host a guest lecture by the renowned philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah on 27 June 2024 titled "Identities in History." Appiah's lecture will be based on his latest book The Lies That Bind: Rethinking Identity (2018).

This book grew out of four lectures that Professor Appiah gave for BBC Radio. His aim was to provide a broad audience with a comprehensive understanding of social identities, drawing on philosophy, history, literature and the social sciences. In his original lectures he examined four specific identities: religion, nationality, race and culture, adding the category of class in the book. In his lecture at the BCDSS, Appiah will focus on the status of what the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution defines as "race, color, or previous condition of servitude."

Appiah's lecture at the BCDSS is part of a lecture series that is co-organized by stimmen afrikas, the Global South Studies Center (GSSC) and the English Department at the University of Cologne.

Due to limited seating, please register by 24 June: events@dependency.uni-bonn.de
