Monique Ligtenberg: “Contagious connections: Medicine, race, and plantation capitalism between Frankfurt, Sumatra and New Guinea, 1879-1904.” This paper focuses on the transimperial career of the German physician, physical anthropologist and founder of Frankfurt's Völkerkundemuseum Dr. Bernhard Hagen (1853-1919). By focusing on Hagen's life between Frankfurt, Dutch-ruled Sumatra and German New Guinea, it argues that the co-production and circulation of medical and anthropological knowledge transcended the boundaries of individual empires and nation states.

Claire Blaser: ”Sanskrit roots in the Swiss Idioticon: Early Indology in Switzerland between transimperial science and national identity formation.”
This research sheds light on the history of the discipline of Indology at the University of Zurich between the mid-19th and the mid-20th century. In focusing on the Zurich scholars’ cross-disciplinary as well as cross-border networks, the paper argues that early Indological knowledge production in Switzerland was simultaneously a site of transimperial entanglement and of Swiss national identity formation.
