The Podcast

Knowledge Unbound Episode 18 | May 8th 2024 | Language: german

#18: Eingesperrt?! Strafrechtsreformen in Deutschland und im kolonialen Indien

In this episode of our " Knowledge Unbound" podcast, Michaela Dimmers from the Max Weber Forum for South Asian Studies in New Delhi and Richard Wetzell from the German Historical Institute in Washington give us insights into the history of various criminal justice systems and the development of prisons. Richard Wetzell will tell us more about his research on criminal justice reform in Germany at the end of the 19th century and during the 20th century, which was particularly influenced by the ideas of the legal scholar Franz von Liszt. In addition, together with Michaela Dimmers, we will take a look at the function and development of prisons in colonial India. We pay particular attention to changes in juvenile criminal law.

#17: Restitution of African Cultural Obejcts

In this episode of our podcast “Wissen Entgrenzen” Gertrude Aba Mansah Eyifa-Dzidzienyo and Susann Baller talk about restitution claims on African cultural objects. The “Akpini royal regalia” serve as one example for an ongoing restitution process. These objects were taken from the Volta region in Ghana in the early 20th century and can be found in the Ethnological Museum in Berlin today. Other important themes in this episode are decolonisation and the telling of history from an African perspective.
