Master Class Cameroon-German history: 2018
Cameroon and Germany share a common past. The period between 1868 and 1916 is of great importance in the intellectual discourse and understanding of certain contemporary realities in Cameroon. However, the Cameroonian intellectual standpoint about this period remains underexplored because of language barriers and the lack of knowledge on palaeographic techniques. Added to this is the ignorance of the socio-economic and political setting of both countries at that time. These explain the difficulty of exploiting original sources of information found in the National Archives and consequently, research avenues remain unexplored by students and researchers of academic institutions in Cameroon. The aim of the Master Class project is to enable researchers to access and use historically rich documented sources and to consider inter-/multi-disciplinary research on social objects, facts and events of this transitional period in Cameroon's history.
