    “Das Sklavenschiff”: Race, Empire, and Culture in the Nineteenth Century

    Heine’s 1854 poem “Das Sklavenschiff” mobilizes mourning and Romantic literary form for both ethical protest against racism and oppression as well as for a critique of capitalism and empire. The North American Heine Society invites papers for a panel at the German Studies Association that will explore literary and political approaches to race and empire in nineteenth-century culture. Papers that focus on Heine’s work are especially welcome.
