MPI-MMG in Dialogue "Sanitizing Imperial Pasts"

Events 2022
How do the empires of the past continue to exist today? And what is forgotten when bygone empires are so adamantly remembered?

The discussion is moderated by Jelena Radovanović, a researcher of the Max Planck Research Group “Empires of Memory“. [more]
