« Dear colleagues,
We are happy to announce the opening of the Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies (BCDSS) at the University of Bonn, Germany (https://www.dependency.uni-bonn.de/en/).
The interdisciplinary center aims to further promote research on forms of dependency in pre-modern societies. The center concentrates on transcultural and interdisciplinary research with a special focus on non-European pre-modernity.
The BCDSS relies on the expertise of scholars from a wide range of disciplines. The center will further be strengthened by three professorships for forms of social dependency in the European and Asian region of the pre-modern era, as well as in international relations.
We are especially looking forward to a variety of stimulating international cooperation and an exciting academic exchange across various disciplines.

Please feel free to circulate this information about the center. »
Spokesperson Prof. Dr. Stephan Conermann (Vice President for International Affairs),
