Cluster Research Areas go on Retreats

Jul 26, 2015

In order to intensively discuss their respective research, the four research areas organise retreats. The first group to meet this summer was Research Area B, followed by Research Areas D and C. Research Area A will hold its retreat in autumn.

Research Area C "Knowledge Systems" went to Hornberg from July 17 to 18. In the first session, the members had the chance to talk about their project development, future planning and other concerns. During the subsequent reading session Dr. Daniel Münster gave an introduction to new research trends: Relational Ontology, dialectics of nature and multispecies approaches. On the second day, PhD students had a writing workshop while senior researchers came to work on their panel discussion for this year’s annual conference in October for which the Research Area C is responsible for.

Research Area D "Historicities and Heritage" convened at the Château du Liebfrauenberg in Alsace, France, from July 10 to 11. Research Area Members engaged in lively conversations about their ongoing research: New Ph.D. students, joining the Research Area only last year, introduced their dissertation projects and entered into dialogue with their fellow researchers. Several advanced projects presented chapters/articles from their work in progress for productive peer discussions. The retreat concluded with a preliminary discussion of the thematic content of the Annual Conference of 2016 that will be organized by the RA D.

The members of Research Area B "Public Spheres" gathered for a retreat in Wiesbaden from June 12 to 13. Research Area Speakers Prof. Christiane Brosius and Prof. Hans Harder, together with the other members, discussed various texts on transculturality, religion, media, art and urban spaces.

The next research area to hold a retreat is Research Area A "Governance and Administration" from November 20 to 21.

The research at the Cluster is organised into four areas: A "Governance and Administration", B "Public Spheres", C "Knowledge Systems" and D "Historicities and Heritage". The areas are represented by their speakers: Prof. Dr. Diamantis Panagiotopoulos (Area A), Prof. Dr. Christiane Brosius (Area B), Prof. Dr. Joachim Kurtz (Area C) and Prof. Dr. Monica Juneja (Area D).
