Confronting the colonial past: content, narrative structure and current implications of social representations of colonial history

For several decades, controversies over the legacies of colonialism have been taking place in former European colonial countries. They reached a peak in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement in the spring of 2020 and continue to this day. In this talk, He will present some highlights from twenty years of research on social representations of colonial history, mainly in relation to Belgian colonialism in the Congo. He will focus on the content of these representations, their narrative structure and the way in which they interfere with current intergroup attitudes.
