Public Lecture by Michael Zeuske

Michael Zeuske is principal investigator at the BCDSS and was professor for Iberian and Latin American History at the University of Cologne. Michael Zeuske focuses on different forms of dependency in the Atlantic slavery (1450-1886), in the global history of slavery and in different local slaveries as well as slave trades on a micro-historical level (life histories of enslaved people and slave traders). In his lecture he explores "Slave Religions and Industrial Revolutions at the Times of Second Slavery (19th/20th Centuries)". His lecture is part of the public ZERG lecture series, organized by the Centre for Religion and Society (ZERG) and the BCDSS, Research Area C: "Control, Coercion, and Constraint II. The Role of Religion in Overcoming and Creating Structures of Dependency". The lecture series tackles the role of religion in both overcoming existing and creating new forms and types of dependencies. This is a hybrid event. The lecture will also be streamed via youtube.
