People – Images – One World. Images of People in German-speaking Missionary Journals from Imperial Germany
The project was dedicated to the investigation of visual constructions and representations of the "own" and the "foreign" in the religious journalism of the empire. How did early mass media show the "others"? What conceptions of the "own" and the "foreign" were conveyed by images and photographs in missionary magazines during the Empire?
