Die Bergakademie Freiberg und das koloniale Montanwesen
Eine Studie über den Einsatz von Absolventen einer deutschen Hochschule in Kolonien vom Beginn des Lehrbetriebes 1766 bis zum Ausbruch des Zweiten Weltkrieges.
Series:Kolonialismus und postkoloniale Perspektiven, Band II [Colonialism and Postcolonial Perspectives, Vol. 2]
“Freibergers can be found everywhere,” said mining student Robert Dach, describing the fact that between 1766 and 1939 more than 200 students of the Freiberg Mining Academy sought their fortunes in colonies and overseas territories after graduation. Ulrich Thiel investigates their places of work, activities and careers on the basis of a prosopographical database. In the course of classifying the Mining Academy and its internationally active graduates in the development of worldwide colonial mining, he answers the questions of how competitive the special education from Saxony proved to be in a global context, how the transfer of knowledge took shape as a reciprocal process between Freiberg and the colonies and how the graduates inserted themselves into the social hierarchy of the colonial system.
