Restaging Academia

By in Projekte, Vorträge

Dreimal jährlich findet eine gemeinsame Veranstaltung des Internationalen Graduiertenkollegs InterArt mit den Kooperationspartnern, der Copenhagen Doctoral School sowie dem Goldsmith College London statt, die den Kollegsmitgliedern, insbesondere den Promovierenden, einen intensiven Austausch mit den Wissenschaftler/inne/n der Partnerinstitutionen ermöglicht.

This year’s symposium in Berlin (November 3 – 5, 2011) will build on some of the themes of the last three Joint Symposia while also opening up a new specific area for discussion. Entitled Re-Staging Academia, we invite you to submit proposals reflecting on the concept of academic work, its practices, ideas, and traditions. Even prior to the foundation and establishment of universities, there have been many considerations, discussions, and discourses about the notions of knowledge, teaching, and university (from Plato, to Humboldt, to Nietzsche, Adorno, Barthes, Foucault, and Derrida – to name only a few), which are still vivid today. We would like to revisit these discourses, explore some of their central concepts and also link them back to the discussions that arose in last year’s three Joint Symposia.
