Accepted Paper:

Decolonizing Restitution: James Cook, contact zones, and a transnational Maori indigeneity  
Markus Schleiter (University of Tübingen)

Paper Short Abstract:

The paper reflects on collaborative exhibition practices as well as present-day encounters around the wood-carved ancestor panel Hinematioro’s pou in Tübingen and Uawa, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Paper Abstract:

I will explore the polyphony of present-day decolonial discourses on James Cook in Aotearoa New Zealand which in one version sees him as the first white oppressor. Thereby, I draw on talks with Maori people and explore concepts of Maori indigeneities as transnational and cosmopolitan. In which way does Clifford’s understanding of contact zones then reflect a decolonial approach to the question of to which place objects belong? And what could the latter tell us on the question of decolonizing at large?
