The Ethnologisches Museum in Berlin holds more than 6,500 historical black-and-white photographs from Latin America. These images were produced between 1868 and 1936 and mainly depict ethnological and archaeological motifs, although some portray views of urban or natural landscapes. The contributions to this volume focus on particular series from this extensive archive. In doing so, they illustrate the enormous potential for research inherent within such “repositories of memory”, represent a diverse set of approaches and provide varied interpretations of historical photographs. The contributions focus on the contexts in which these images were produced and provide interpretations of the intentions behind some of the photographs. Moreover, they analyse the acquisition of these photographs and the manner in which they have been preserved and disseminated. Additionally, the contributions highlight the manners in which the images have been used and the impact of some of the formats in which the photographs were published. This richly illustrated volume is complemented by the digital reproductions available online at http://www.smb-digital.de/.

Obgleich Konversionen zum Katholizismus zu den zentralen Merkmalen der frühneuzeitlichen Geschichte gehören, wurden sie lange vernachlässigt. Der Band behandelt dieses Phänomen in systematischer und vergleichender Weise. Im Zentrum des Interesses stehen die Besonderheiten der Konversionen zum Katholizismus: Die planmäßige Konversionspolitik der Papstkirche mit ihren Institutionen und Überzeugungsstrategien; die Akzeptanz weltlicher Motive bei gleichzeitigem Streben nach wahrer Überzeugung; und die Universalität der Kirche, die nicht nur zu Konversionen von Südamerika bis Japan führte, sondern auch auf Europa zurückwirkte.

Politics and Policies in Upper Guinea Coast Societies

This book examines the radical changes in social and political landscape of the Upper Guinea Coast region over the past 30 years as a result of civil wars, post-war interventions by international, humanitarian agencies and peacekeeping missions, as well as a regional public health crisis (Ebola epidemic). The emphasis on ‘crises’ in this book draws attention to the intense socio-transformations in the region over the last three decades. Contemporary crises and changes in the region provoke a challenge to accepted ways of understanding and imagining socio-political life in the region – whether at the level of subnational and national communities, or international and regional structures of interest, such as refugees, weapon trafficking, cross-border military incursions, regional security, and transnational epidemics. This book explores and transcends the central explanatory tropes that have oriented research on the region and re-evaluates them in the light of the contemporary structural dynamics of crises, changes and continuities.
