Forced migration as a reaction to National Socialism represents individual as well as simultaneously collective, transnational, and global experiences. The talk argues that the biography of the archaeologist Grete Mostny (1914–1991) offers an exemplary case study of such processes of adaptation on individual, collective, and academic levels.

My paper uses Mostny’s career as a lens through which to detect connected histories and entangled hegemonies in Chilean society, especially in academia. Moreover, it elaborates on the importance of certain sociological factors to be able to establish oneself as a scholar in exile. Thereby I will show that the categories of race and ethnicity played a central role in the field of knowledge production and for career developments far away from home.
