Medien – Religion – Geschichte: Moderne Konfigurationen

Medien Religion Geschichte Plakat Bild

Winter semester 2019/20, chaired by Prof. Dr. Adrian Hermann

Bonner Universitätsforum, Heussallee 18-24, Room 0.109
on Wednesdays, 6pm - 7:30pm

 

"Everything we know about historical religions, we have learned through the media," Oliver Krüger writes in Die mediale Religion. At the same time, different media (from the body, through the Oblates, to the Internet) profoundly shape the history of religion. As the religious scholar Peter Bräunlein has suggested, it could therefore be reconstructed from the perspective of a media story. According to the Utrecht ethnologist Birgit Meyer, religion can even be generally understood as a media practice of dealing with the invisible. Media thus do not appear as a cultural technique that changes the previously sudden, direct relationship of man to the world only in the course of history, but media would be the means that also enables experiences of immediacy in the first place. It turns out that the topic of "religion and media" is currently being intensively discussed in religious research.
This gives us reason to discuss selected perspectives on modern configurations of media, religion and history in this series of lectures. The lectures deal with theoretical reflections as well as exemplary analyses of religious (media) history, religion in comics and digital culture, the culturalization of religion and gender in the current discourse on Islam in Germany and Europe, right up to the examination of questions of truth in the current documentary.
 
Questions about media, religion and history are thus connected in the main questions of the series: What new and different can we see when we consider the religious history of modernity as a media history? What significance do these questions have for a globally and comparatively oriented religious research?

Previous lecture series

The Global Diversity of Universities in the 21st Century

Bild Plakat Global Diversity of Universities

Bonner Universitätsforum, Heussallee 18-24, Room 0.109
on Wednesdays, 6pm - 7:30pm

The view on the global higher education and research system is increasingly shaped by global university rankings that regularly highlight some 500 or 1000 of the best universities. They use methodologically controversial indicators as quality criteria, particularly the numbers of publications and citations in high impact journals. Around the world, nation states currently try to place at least a small number of their universities in the top ranks. As a result, we witness a global standardization of what is imagined to be a globally competitive research university in the 21st century. Scholars have pointed to an “emerging global model” that almost all actors take as a role model. However, only a very small part of the roughly 20,000 Higher Education Institutions around the world is actually included in such discussions.

The lecture series aims to start a discussion about the diversity of universities in the world society in the 21st century beyond the international rankings. For that matter experts from various types of universities around the world will report daily challenges and experiences of those universities that are important for their regional and national context or fulfil specific functions but are not primarily focusing on the global competition race. In other words, it focuses on those universities that are not playing in the first league, yet carry various important traditions and play a tremendous role for millions of students and lecturers.
