With the lecture "Das politische Buch im Gespräch: Die Freiheit der Liebe. Transkulturelle Paare" by Michael Jeismann(Leipzig), the Center for Transculturel Studies / Perthes Collection continues its "Tuesday Talks" series in the winter semester 2021/22. The event takes place in cooperation with the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung.

A couple in which two cultures combine causes turmoil. This experience is as familiar to the Epic of Gilgamesh as it is to the Erasmus couples who find each other while studying abroad. Michael Jeismann has written the first cultural history of those couples who found each other across borders. The fear that a foreign culture could weaken one's own identity is as great as the desire to enrich one's life with something new. Michael Jeismann puts the legendary Queen of Sheba and King Solomon in the same line as the Englishwoman Ruth Khama and Seretse Khama, later President of Botswana, who triggered the first global protest against racial discrimination in 1950. The intercultural couples between prohibition and tolerance: many will find themselves in this book Couples between prohibition and tolerance: many will find themselves in this book.
