March 28, 2022 - April 1, 2022
Spring School Openness, Tolerance and Sense of Community. Narratives and Realities of Contemporary Societies
28.3-1.4.2022, Landschaftspark Duisburg
The Spring School aims to question simplistic diagnoses and to analyse which, partly competing, partly complementary, ideas and hypotheses are hidden behind these labels. In three panels we aim to investigate specifically how the humanistic ideals of public spirit and community, openness and tolerance shape and are being shaped, striven for, as well as negotiated and contested by contemporary society. 
 
We invite doctoral students of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities to participate in the Spring School and present part of your work. A selected presentation will be scheduled to take 25 minutes (10 minutes presentation + 15 minutes discussion). Please submit a brief CV (max. 1 page), an abstract on your doctoral research (max. 500 words), a motivation for your application (max. 250 words), an indication of preference of panel workshops (please indicate your priorities) and an indication of choice for the performative-participatory laboratory.
The deadline for submissions is 10 January 2022. Notifications will be sent out by the end of January.
