Summer School 2019: Challenging the Sites of Knowledge
Ort: Murten (Hotel Bad Muntelier, Schweiz)
Beginn: 03.09.2019 12:00
Ende: 07.09.2019 12:00
The Summer School of 2019 of the Graduate School of the Humanities (University of Bern) analyzes and discusses present and past angles and sites of knowledge generation especially in regard to medial and pluri-medial configurations and transformations from a historical, sociological, cultural and philosophical perspective. It reflects in particular on the challenges thereof for the Humanities and the Cultural and Social Sciences regarding
their role in a (post-post)modern knowledge society. How do we reclaim expertise of, and for, the Humanities – an expertise which is crucial to society, but which seems to have been in question for quite some time already? And how can we manage conversation and translation – inside and outside academia – in light of an increasing pressure to make our research visible, tangible and understandable for non-experts as well? How, for example, do we analyse the (co-)production of representations through audio-visual counter-narratives, in particular in a context of cross-cultural or post-migration settings?
keynote speakers: Prof. Monika Salzbrunn (Lausanne), Dr. Doris Bachmann-Medick (Giessen), Prof. Jens Schröter (Bonn).
Application deadline: 30 April 2019
