Embracing the future together: Reflections on genuine collaboration in repatriation and restitution

Organiser: Prof Dr Dany Adone, Anna Gosebrink, M. A., Mareike Plenk, M. Ed.


The one-day hybrid workshop "Embracing the future together. Reflections on genuine collaboration in repatriation and restitution" brings together repatriation practitioners and scholars currently engaged in repatriation and restitution in particular between Oceania and Germany, highlighting the importance of the genuine and equitable collaboration. Indigenous scholars, museum curators, government agencies, as well as researchers in history, anthropology, linguistics and cultural studies to only name a few, are involved in repatriation and restitution, which demonstrate the inter- and transdisciplinary nature of repatriation and restitution research and practice. At the heart of this workshop lies the goal of highlighting the essential role of genuine collaboration in each stage of repatriation and restitution. Each contributor will share their experience and reflect on how genuine collaboration can be implemented.

The workshop is hosted and organised by the Chair of Applied Linguistics (Department of English I) and the Centre for Australian Studies, Prof. Dany Adone and her research team, Anna Kevorkov, M.A. and Mareike Plenk, M.Ed.
