Cancellation of events

Due to the recent spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the Humboldt University Berlin has taken immediate precautionary measures. All events, conferences and conventions are cancelled until July 20th 2020. Unfortunately, this also applies to events organised by members of the “London Moment” research group. We were forced to postpone the following events that we recently promoted on this website:

– Workshop “Law in Transnational Spaces: Cross-border Biographies in Legal History in the 19th and 20th Century”, 19./20.03.2020

– ”9th Junior Workshop of the German Association for British Studies” (AGF), 14./15.05.2020

We will inform about new dates on this website. In the meantime, the blog will continue to supply you with bits and pieces from our research.

Best wishes,

The “London Moment”-Team

Simeon Marty

I am a PhD student at the Department of History of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and member of the research project “The London Moment”. After completing my B.A. in History (major) and Science of Religion (minor) at the Universities Fribourg and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in 2016, I recently graduated from King’s College London with a master’s degree in World History and Cultures. My M.A. thesis “The mouse that roared: The Anguillan secessionist movement and British policy making in the decolonisation of the Anglophone Caribbean, 1966-1971” explores the interconnection between cultural stereotypes in post-war British administration and policy making in the process of decolonisation. In my PhD Project, I will explore the transnational networks that have been established by non-Europeans, especially anti-colonial and Pan-African movements, in London during the Second World War. This research hopes to uncover to what extent the “London Moment” with its extraordinarily high concentration of political groupings and international political actors offered new perspectives for anti-colonial activists and intellectuals in the formulation of social and political alternatives. In a broader sense, it will examine how this has contributed to the manifold processes of decolonisation that followed shortly afterwards.
