INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM

  • The many-faceted Independence. The emancipation of Central America revised.

Commemorating the 200th anniversary of Central American Independence (1821-2021)

October 14-16, 2021

University of Vienna & University of Graz, Austria

  • Concept and Coordination

Laurin Blecha (FSP Global History, University of Vienna) Christian Cwik (Center for Inter-American Studies, University of Graz) Jörg Türschmann (Department of Romance Studies, University of Vienna) Academic Board Rina Cáceres Gómez (University of Costa Rica) Sergio Guerra Vilaboy (University of Havana) Werner Mackenbach (University of Costa Rica)

On September 15, 2021, five of the seven Central American Republics will celebrate the 200th anniversary of their independence (bicentenario) from the Spanish Crown in 1821. The multidimensionality of the process requires a profound and interdisciplinary review, because of the premise that the process of political emancipation was complex and had multiple effects for the historical development in a cultural and ethnic enormous heterogeneous region. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Central American independency we want to invite in October 2021 a group of 25 to 28 experts, historians, anthropologists, and political scientists, to Vienna and Graz. The colloquium seeks to bring together internationally recognized academics as well as young researchers, to reflect on the global, international, and transnational perspectives on Central American independency and its impact until today. This means including Central and Latin American visions, motivations, and perspectives in the face of changes that transcend their effects on the societies in the region today. Above all, the event seeks increase the knowledge about the history of Latin America in general and about Central America in particular in Austria. The event is organized threw a cooperation between the University of Vienna and the University of Graz and will be held between October 14-16, 2021.

  • Organization and format

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the colloquium is arranged as hybrid event. It will be possible to attend on-site as well as online, the later especially for those who cannot travel to Vienna and/or Graz. In case of deteriorating circumstances and new restrictions related to the pandemic, the colloquium will be held only online.
