“Die Indianer konnten die Einwanderung nicht stoppen“ – Panel Discussion at Grassi Museum on Nov. 21, 2019, at 7 pm

The Grassi Museum für Völkerkunde cordially invites to a panel discussion on the cultural and political impact of constructed “images of Indians”.

Grassi director Léontine Meijer-van Mensch and curator Frank Usbeck will talk to James Mackay, professor of American Literature specializing in indigenous literature, and Johanna Cree Summers, daughter of the indigenous author John Blackbird. The discussion will especially focus on the question how “images of Indians” are used – and instrumentalized – nowadays in Europa and the US, e. g., in the immigration debate. Cree Summers will also share her personal experience with the German “enthusiasm for Indians” (thinking of Karl May or Buffalo Bill) and cultural prejudices.

The event takes place at Grassi Museum für Völkerkunde, Johannisplatz 5-11, 04103 Leipzig.
It will be held in German and entrance is free.
