The Chair for the History of Science invites all interested to the talk of Micha Suter (Genf) on November 21, 2023.

As part of the colloquiums program in the winter term 2023/2024 Micha Suter (Genf) will hold a talk on "Decolonizing the Psyche: The Politics of Ethnopsychology, 1930 1980" on November 21 at 6pm in LG4/D06.

Mischa Suter is a Swiss National Science Foundation Assistant Professor at the Graduate Institute since 2021. He is the Principal Investigator of a research project on the history of ethnopsychology, a scientific discourse that emerged in late colonialism. The five-year project studies the political implications of debates on the nature of the human psyche – particularly of people from the Global South – during the “long” moment of decolonisation, 1930–1980.

All interested - colleagues and students - are cordially invited to join in person or online.

Please let Bernhard Kleeberg or Carola Oßmer know if you're interested in joining the talk.
