Federal polities are accordingly conceptualized as orders which can regulate heterogeneity and resolve conflict—for the sake of long-term stability. The lecture will question this expectation of permanence by pointing to exceptions in global intellectual history from early Soviet proponents of federalism and the founding fathers and mothers of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany: when and to what normative end is the idea of permanent federation subverted? 

Eva Marlene Hausteiner holds the Chair in Political Theory and History of Political Thought at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, a Dr. phil. from the Humboldt University of Berlin, and a Habilitation from the University of Bonn. Her research focuses on the conceptual and intellectual histories of empire and federalism, and on story-telling in politics through conspiracy theories, metaphors, and images.

My talk suggests that this inflection point was characterized not only by new means and scales of environmental exploitation, but also by the emergence of climate politics. The naturalist Georg Forster provides a helpful itinerary through this time, from his study of Saxon hydraulics in the wake of the flood of 1784 to his death in Paris during the Terror of 1794. On either side of the Rhine, resource management and disaster mitigation constituted political power.

Patrick Anthony received his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in 2021. He is currently a DAAD PRIME Fellow at LMU Munich and the University of Cambridge and is working on a global social history of Alexander von Humboldt’s science as it developed through extractive industries in Prussia, Mexico, and Siberia.

While some praised the accuracy with which series such as Shtisel (2013-2021) or Unorthodox (2020) presented ultraorthodox customs, others identified problematic anti-Semitic stereotypes in those depictions. This lecture examines how far the representations in either series serve as a distancing mirror of our own societies and looks at them in comparison to modes of classical serial storytelling in television as exemplified by series such as Dallas or Dynasty.

Tobias Ebbrecht-Hartmann is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communication and Journalism and the European Forum at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has published on visual history and memory of the Holocaust and on German and Israeli film history. He is a consortium member in the Horizon 2020 research and innovation action Visual History of the Holocaust: Rethinking Curation in the Digital Age (2019-2022).

Buckminster Fuller and Arno Peters http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/david-kuchenbuch-mediating-globalism-in-the-twentieth-century-the-cases-of-r-buckminster-fuller-and.html 15.11.2022, Vortrag, online Many scholars have argued that historical concepts of the global are under-researched. In my talk, I will argue that filling this gap will mean taking a closer look at media representing global connections and differences. I will do this by presenting my research on American designer R. Buckminster Fuller and (West) German historian Arno Peters, both of whom rose to prominence as mediators of the global after the Second World War. Yet, while Fuller epitomized a highly optimistic globalism based on notions of technological progress typical of the 1960s, Peters’s works resonated with a more self-critical globalism, which gained traction in the 1970s. Analysing the history of globalism through the prism of media (and biography) points us to important shifts in twentieth-century political cultures.

David Kuchenbuch is Assistant Professor at Justus Liebig University Giessen. His main fields of interest are the history of knowledge, media history, and transnational history. He is the author of Geordnete Gemeinschaft: Architekten als Sozialingenieure— Deutschland und Schweden im 20. Jahrhundert (2010); Pioneering Health in London, 1935–2000: The Peckham Experiment (2019); and Welt-Bildner: Arno Peters, Richard Buckminster Fuller und die Medien des Globalismus, 1940–2000 (2021).

This materiality asks ‘when’ before ‘how’ and ‘why’. Yet ‘Anthropocene’ values were central to ancient and medieval states, and thus foundational for modern states. Across the globe, early expansionist polities envisaged ‘civilization’ as the successful exploitation by elites of landscapes, ecologies, and human and non-human life. Ceasing to dominate the earth was an illegitimate choice. Our present is best understood as a terrible acceleration of established practices through colonial theft, slavery, harnessing of fossil fuel energy, and the remorseless eradication of alternatives and those who lived them. A better understanding of this history enables us to chart new directions.

Amanda Power is Sullivan Clarendon Associate Professor in History at the University of Oxford. She is currently working on a monograph, Medieval Histories of the Anthropocene. She co-convenes the Climate Crisis Thinking in the Humanities and Social Sciences network and the IHR’s Anthropocene Histories seminar.

This talk focuses on Charles’s conception of the global as a political sphere, showing the paradoxes at play in her vision of Dominica as a modern state worthy of global attention rather than a peripheral, insignificant former British colony. Charles’s global vision for Dominica brought some benefits during the Cold War, but by the 1990s, as Western powers turned their gaze away from the Caribbean, this exposed Dominica’s vulnerability.

Imaobong Umoren is Associate Professor of International History at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

news-8143 Thu, 20 Oct 2022 08:48:00 +0200 Klimakrise(n) in Russland, den USA und China: Regionaler Fokus und globale Bedeutung http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/klimakrisen-in-russland-den-usa-und-china-regionaler-fokus-und-globale-bedeutung-geisteswissenschaft.html 20.10.2022, GiD-Podiumsdiskussion, Hörsaal der Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften und digital via ZOOM Mit dem Pariser Klimaabkommen einigten sich im Dezember 2015 Delegierte aus 195 Ländern auf das Ziel, die Erderwärmung auf „deutlich unter zwei Grad“ Celsius im Vergleich zur vorindustriellen Zeit zu begrenzen. Während die Weltgemeinschaft im ersten Jahrfünft nach der Unterzeichnung des Abkommens der Erreichung dieses Ziels kaum näherkam und es mittlerweile irreversibel zu verfehlen droht, markierten die Jahre 2020 und 2021 einen neuen weltweiten Aufbruch in der Klimapolitik. Neben der EU, die ihre Dekarbonisierungsziele mit dem Green New Deal konkretisierte und verschärfte, kamen wichtige Signale nicht zuletzt auch aus den USA, Russland und China. Diese drei Länder gehören je zu den vier größten Flächenstaaten und zu den vier größten Verursachern von Treibhausgasen weltweit. Von ihrer zukünftigen Politik wird es in weiten Teilen abhängen, ob der Klimawandel auf ein den kommenden Generationen zumutbares Maß begrenzt werden kann. Die USA traten nach der Wahl Bidens dem Pariser Klimaabkommen wieder bei und nahmen Kurs auf eine ambitionierte Klimapolitik; Russland verkündete 2021 erstmals eigene Dekarbonisierungsziele; China verpflichtete sich im selben Jahr, die Finanzierung von Kohlekraftwerken im Ausland einzustellen.

Der mit dem Einmarsch russischer Truppen am 24. Februar 2022 begonnene Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine bedeutet in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Zeitenwende. Dies gilt für die internationale Staatenordnung wie auch für die dringliche Bekämpfung des Klimawandels. Vor dem Hintergrund verschärfter geopolitischer Spannungen und einer grundlegenden Infragestellung der bisherigen Energiebeziehungen droht die Klimakrise – zumindest für den Moment – auf der Agenda vieler Regierungen in den Hintergrund zu treten.

Die Podiumsdiskussion setzt sich zum Ziel, diese Zusammenhänge vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Ereignisse aufzuzeigen. Während alle drei Länder aufgrund ihrer geografischen Größe, ihres geopolitischen Einflusses und ihres Anteils an den weltweiten Treibhausgasemissionen wichtige Akteure für die Bekämpfung des Klimawandels sind, zeigt sich die Klimakrise in ihnen jeweils in unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen. Für die USA gilt z.B., dass sie mit einer politischen Krise einhergeht, denn der Handlungswille verläuft zumeist entlang der Trennlinie zwischen Demokraten und Republikanern. Russland ist mit seinen riesigen Permafrost- und Waldflächen immer stärker vom Klimawandel betroffen und sieht zugleich angesichts der starken Abhängigkeit von fossilen Rohstoffeinnahmen und des weltweiten Dekarbonisierungstrends schwierigen Zeiten entgegen. Die autoritäre Regierung in Beijing betont zwar ihr Engagement für eine „ökologische Zivilisation“, steht aber bei der Umsetzung ihrer Klimaziele auf lokaler Ebene vor großen Herausforderungen.

Wie stellt sich also die Klimakrise in diesen drei Großmächten dar und wie wird sie wahrgenommen? Welche Unterschiede, welche Gemeinsamkeiten und welche Verbindungslinien gibt es zwischen ihnen? Welche Reaktionsmuster lassen sich beobachten und welche Perspektiven auf Überwindung sind global denkbar und werden in den einzelnen Ländern diskutiert? Diese Fragen werden im Zentrum der Podiumsdiskussion stehen.

Improvising on Adorno’s dictum ‘writing poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric’ one might consider writing humour in the German language after Auschwitz a contradiction in terms. Yet, this was the gap into which the Israeli author Ephraim Kishon, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary, stepped. The most successful humourist of the Federal Republic, his humour was rooted in the everyday life of Israeli Jews, his writing tradition belonged to Central-Europe, his Hebrew-German translator was a well-known Austrian author and his German audience was the generation of the perpetrators and the post-war generation. The lecture will examine explanations for Kishon’s success in Germany.

Moshe Zimmermann is Professor emeritus for German History. Formerly Director of the Richard-Koebner-Center for German History, Hebrew University, Jerusalem (1986-2012), he held many Visiting Professorships around the world and has won numerous academic prizes for his work.

Knowledge about Migrants vs. Migrants’ Knowledge http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/shalini-randeria-whose-knowledge-knowledge-about-migrants-vs-migrants-knowledge.html 12.10.2022, Vortrag, online Shalini Randeria, president and rector of the Central European University (Vienna) will deliver the fourth Annual Bucerius Lecture. In 2021, she was the first woman, and the first person from the Global South, to take up this position since the founding of the university 30 years ago. 

Professor Randeria’s reflections on migration — a pervasive, unwanted, yet enduring process — interrogate the complicity of mainstream European academic scholarship on the phenomenon with the attempts of the modern states to establish monopolies of truth by shaping the narratives and even the vocabulary in this fraught field of enquiry. By placing the question of the migrant’s ‘undesirability’ by definition at the center of so-called liberal border policies, Professor Randeria highlights the dynamics of deeply entrenched post-colonial asymmetries of power and privilege that manifest themselves in classifying some people as being “out of place.” The migrants are thus marked not by their mobility but by a position of political and legal precarity, rightlessness and exclusion. Moreover, the current European framing of migration as a problem of radical cultural alterity pits the liberal European citizen against an illiberal non-European migrant, whose very presence poses a threat to European “host” societies and cultures. Liberal values thus function as a new register of Othering that redirects our attention to exclusionary practices in strengthening the citizen/migrant divide.

Shalini Randeria has had a distinguished academic career as a sociologist/social anthropologist at institutions of higher education across Europe. She was rector of the Institute for Human Sciences, Vienna, and a professor at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, where she directed the Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy. She holds the Excellence Chair at the University of Bremen, where she leads a research group on “soft authoritarianisms”. Professor Randeria has published widely on the anthropology of globalization, law, the state, and social movements with a regional focus on India. Her podcast series, Democracy in Question, goes into its fourth season in spring 2022.

The lecture is part of an annual program that also includes a workshop for emerging scholars from Germany and the Northern America who present and discuss their research in “Histories of Migration: Transatlantic and Global Perspectives.” The Young Scholar Forum and the lecture are funded by the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius, one of the major German private foundations active in the field of migration and transformation studies.

news-8184 Tue, 11 Oct 2022 12:26:00 +0200 Axel Klein: Smoke without a Fire? The Search for Populism in Japan http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/axel-klein-smoke-without-a-fire-the-search-for-populism-in-japan.html 11.10.2022, Vortrag, online Compared to other liberal democracies, Japan’s political system has a few rare characteristics. The most obvious one is the dominance of a single political party. Ruling a country for 63 of 67 years of its existence makes the LDP by far the most successful and enduring of all democratic parties. The absence of an electorally relevant green party is another uncommon feature (as is the conspicuously little attention climate change enjoys as a political topic during election campaigns).

But what about populism? Is there a populist party? Or at least populist politicians? The few studies that deal with this question have identified Ishin no Kai (Japan Restoration Party) and Tomin Fāsuto (Citizens of Tokyo First) as such. Koizumi Jun’ichirō, Hashimoto Tōru, Koike Yuriko and Yamamoto Tarō (Reiwa Shinsengumi) are the usual suspects when it comes to naming populists. But are they really?

This presentation will introduce the Japan track of a larger project presently underway at the University of Duisburg-Essen entitled “Populism in East Asian Democracies”. Klein will address the questions above and explain his view on why there may be smoke without a fire when it comes to populism in Japan, adding one more rare characteristic to the country’s political system.

Axel Klein, PhD is a political scientists and full professor of Modern East Asian Studies and Japanese Politics at Duisburg-Essen University (Germany). Besides populism his research focus has been on election campaigning, demographic change, and the relationship of politics and organized religion in Japan. Among others, he has produced a documentary film on Japanese elections (“Pictures at an Election”, 2008, available on YouTube), conducted extensive field research in the country, and is also an expert on the political party Kōmeitō.

news-8199 Wed, 05 Oct 2022 11:25:00 +0200 Dr. Maha Abdelmegeed: Khayal: Late Ottoman-Era Arabic Literature In The Lens Of Sovereignty http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/dr-maha-abdelmegeed-khayal-late-ottoman-era-arabic-literature-in-the-lens-of-sovereignty.html 05.10.2022, Vortrag, online Important Notice: To attend this online lecture via Zoom, prior registration is necessary: Please send an email specifying your name and academic affiliation to events[at]oiist.net by 3 October 2022 (Monday) at the latest. For technical reasons, the number of participants is limited. You will be informed about the organizational and technical procedure before the lecture starts.

The story of the rise of modern Arabic literature begins in the 19th century when the encounter with Europe instigates a far-reaching process of translation, adaptation, and transmutation against the backdrop of a wider move towards state-modernization on the one hand and incipient colonization on the other. In the throes of these sweeping changes, modern Arabic literature is born as a hybrid; its early examples in the 19th century are a mixture of traditional Arabic literary forms and modern European ones.

Turning to debates on “khayal” (the imaginary, or as we go on to discover: the spectral) in the 19th century, this talk re-tells the story of the inception of literary modernity in Arabic, in the late Ottoman period as an arduous reckoning with modern political sovereignty.

Dr. Maha AbdelMegeed is an Assistant Professor of Arabic Literature at the American University of Beirut. Her current research focuses on rethinking the narratives of the origins of literary modernity in Arabic as well as on the changing conceptions of Arabic language from mid 18thcentury till the early decades of the 20thcentury. Dr. AbdelMegeed is currently a visiting scholar at the Orient-Institut Istanbul (OI Istanbul).

This event is co-organized by the German Historical Institute Washington (GHI Washington) and the Department of German at the University of California, Berkeley in partnership with the Institute of European Studies and the Goethe-Institut San Francisco. The event is generously supported by the German Consulate General San Francisco.

The distinguished German writer Ingo Schulze will begin by reading from his story Das Deutschlandgerät. After the reading, Schulze will be joined in conversation by Deniz Göktürk (UC Berkeley) and Heike Friedman (GHI, Berkeley). In-person and online attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions. The event will be held in German, but questions may be submitted in English. The event will be held in the Tilden Room (5th Floor, Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Union) on the UC Berkeley campus and will also be available for participants to participate virtually via Zoom.

Written between 2010 and 2016 and published in 2021 under the title Tasso im Irrenhaus, Das Deutschlandgerät refers to an installation built by Reinhard Mucha as Germany’s contribution to the 44th Venice Biennale in 1990. The name references a hydraulic mechanism used to put derailed trains back on track. In both Mucha’s installation and Schulze’s text, the machine serves as a cipher for the fractured German state. Schulze’s narrative follows the fictional character B.C., a writer who was forced to leave the GDR but was ultimately unable to find his place in West Germany. B.C. tries to continue publishing books about a country that has ceased to exist only to see his writing crumble in the process.

Ingo Schulze was born in Dresden in 1962 and lives in Berlin. His novel New Lives (2005) is widely regarded as the most important novel about German unification. His books have won numerous prizes and have been translated into thirty languages. His other books include: 33 Augenblicke des Glücks (1995), Simple Storys (1998), Handy (2007), Adam und Evelyn (2008), Peter Holtz – sein glückliches Leben erzählt von ihm selbst (2017), and Die rechtschaffenen Mörder (2020). The award-winning radio play based on Das Deutschlandgerät is available online. For further information on the author, see www.ingoschulze.com

Building on Kumagusu’s fascination over the microbe slime mold, the lecture delineates the ways in which a parallel paradigm of interdisciplinary knowledge production emerges when the historian places microbes as the basis for the historical actor’s truths, which she conceptualizes as ‘queer nature.’ In doing so, the paper reveals a novel account of civilization theory and evolutionism that eventually formulated what she calls the ‘microbial paradigm’ that existed in history, but not in historiography.

Attendees are invited to reflect on what’s at stake when one does or does not decenter the focal point of knowledge production in history, and what kind of implications it may have on present-day research and teaching in area studies. The lecture launches the initial phase of the speaker’s AUFF-funded experimental research network Unearthing Multispecies Intellectual History: Earthing Trajectories of Area Studies (2022-2025).

Eiko Honda is an Assistant Professor of Japanese Studies at Aarhus University who specializes in the intellectual history of modern Japan. Her historical research interrogates boundary-defying works and (inter-)actions of Japanese scientist-polymaths whose epistemologies do not conform to the model of ‘civilizational progress’ led by the vision of human domination over non-human ‘nature.’ She concurrently collaborates with scholars and practitioners of various fields to investigate shifting roles and methods of History and Area Studies in the time of climate crisis. Forthcoming and recent publications include “Minakata Kumagusu and the Emergence of Queer Nature: The Civilisation Theory, Buddhist Science and Microbes, 1887-1892” in Modern Asian Studies (forthcoming); and “Undoing the Discipline: History in the Time of Climate Crisis and COVID-19” in Journal for the History of Environment and Society (2020).

news-8177 Wed, 28 Sep 2022 10:35:00 +0200 Gewalt als historisches, religiöses und anthropologisches Phänomen http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/gewalt-als-historisches-religioeses-und-anthropologisches-phaenomen.html 28.09.2022, Podiumsdiskussion, online Mit Jan Assmann, Denis Crouzet, Vincent Duclert, und Naïma Ghermani.

In Deutschland haben Jan Assmanns Überlegungen über Monotheismus und Gewalt intensive Diskussionen ausgelöst. Haben die »mosaische Unterscheidung« zwischen wahrer und falscher Religion und der monotheistische Glaube an den einen eifersüchtigen Gott, der die eine und absolute Wahrheit verkündet und vertritt, eine neue Art von Gewalt unter den Menschen legitimiert und verbreitet?

Aus Anlass des Jubiläums der Bartholomäusnacht vom 23./24. August 1572 wird Jan Assmann seine grundsätzlichen Überlegungen zum Thema als Ausgangspunkt präsentieren. Welche Erklärungskraft haben solche religionsgeschichtlichen Makrotheorien, um das Verhalten von Menschen in konkreten (Bürger-)Kriegssituationen zu erklären? Denis Crouzet als Spezialist der französischen Religionskriege wird diese Problematik in seinen Kommentar zu Jan Assmann einbringen. Dabei geht es nicht um die großen politischen Konflikte der damaligen Adelsfraktionen untereinander und mit der Krone oder zwischen Frankreich und Spanien und ebenso wenig um die Frage, wer wann und aus welchen Motiven einzelne Morde und dann die Massaker ausgelöst hat. Im Vordergrund steht vielmehr die Motivation der zahlreichen Täter im ganzen Königreich, die ihnen bekannte Andersgläubige und oft Nachbarn verfolgten und ermordeten.

Solche Massaker sind bekanntlich kein religiöses Phänomen. Beim Genozid an den Tutsi in Ruanda etwa spielten Kirchen und Kleriker zwar manchmal eine sehr problematische Rolle, doch lässt er sich nicht mit religiösen Wahrheitsansprüchen erklären. Vincent Duclert als ehemaliger Vorsitzender der Mission d’étude sur la recherche et l’enseignement des génocides et crimes de masse sowie der Commission de recherche sur les archives françaises relatives au Rwanda et au génocide des Tutsi wird in seinem Kommentar die Frage aufgreifen, inwiefern Religion eine Spezialform kollektiver Gewalt hervorbringt oder diese verstärkt, in bestimmte Richtungen lenkt – oder auch abmildert.

Im Anschluss an die Präsentation der Thesen und Kritiken debattieren die Podiumsteilnehmer zuerst unter der Leitung von Naïma Ghermani untereinander, bevor die Diskussion für das Publikum geöffnet wird.

Podiumsdiskussion mit Simultanübersetzung (Deutsch-Französisch) veranstaltet durch das Deutsche Historische Institut Paris (DHI).

September 2022 findet unsere Veranstaltung „Europa im Widerstand – Widerstand gegen Europa“ im Futurium, Berlin statt. Auf dem Programm stehen ein World-Café-Format („MWS-Europe-Lab“) am Nachmittag sowie eine Podiumsdiskussion am Abend. Als Expert/innen nehmen Wissenschaftler/innen aus dem MWS-Verbundprojekt „(De)Constructing Europe – EU-Scepticism in European Integration History“ teil. Eine Anmeldung ist bis zum 23. September möglich.

Der russische Krieg gegen die Ukraine stellt die EU auf die Probe. Statt der Aushandlung von Regeln im gemeinsamen Markt verlangen die jüngsten Ereignisse unmittelbare Reaktionen auf unbekanntem Terrain. Skeptikern schien bereits nach den Erfahrungen von Pandemie, Brexit, Flüchtlingswelle und der Eurokrise mehr als ungewiss, ob die EU ihr Versprechen eines friedlichen Europa, das sich nach außen erweitert und nach innen harmonisiert, würde einlösen können. Der Wortsinn von Krise ist Wendepunkt. Steht die EU an einem solchen historischen Wendepunkt, der über ihr zukünftiges Schicksal entscheidet?

Aus historischer Sicht ist es fragwürdig, die Geschichte der EG und später der EU als eine Geschichte stetiger Erweiterung und Vertiefung zu erzählen, die erst nach dem Vertrag von Maastricht von 1992 in verhängnisvolle Untiefen geriet. Die europäische Einigung hat ihre Richtung seit den Römischen Verträgen von 1957 wiederholt geändert und die damit heraufbeschworenen Konflikte haben diesen Prozess geprägt und bestimmt. Erst wenn die aktuellen Entwicklungen vor dem Hintergrund dieser weiter zurückreichenden Konfliktgeschichte der europäischen Integration diskutiert werden, erhält die Frage nach dem gegenwärtigen Zustand der EU eine klare Kontur.

Wie haben äußere und innere Krisen die Entwicklung der europäischen Integration in der Vergangenheit beeinflusst? Welche Vorstellungen von Europa prägen den Verlauf der europäischen Integration? Wie werden Hierarchien zwischen europäischen Regionen im Projekt der Integration reproduziert oder ausgeglichen? Welche politischen, gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Bedürfnisse machen EU-Beitritt oder EU-Austritt für Staaten attraktiv? Was kann man aus der Skepsis gegenüber der europäischen Einigung für die zukünftige Förderung von Zusammenhalt in Europa lernen? Sind Aufstieg und plötzlicher Fall die passenden Parameter für die Deutung der jüngeren Entwicklung der europäischen Integration?

MWS-Europe-Lab

Until recently, European unification seemed to be a process of constant widening and deepening, then after a series of crises a sceptical view on the EU became more prominent. Now – confronted with another war at its borders – the perception of the EU changes again. Has today’s EU perhaps only become what it is because of crises and opponents of integration?

About the format

In this interactive event format, people from different regions and disciplines are brought together. Discussions take place in a relaxed world café atmosphere in which each participant can express his or her views.

At the beginning, there will be an introductory moderation in which the schedule and the various table topics will be briefly presented. Eight (post-)doctoral students act as experts for the four topics, they moderate and lead the discussions at the tables. After the introductory moderation, the participants can choose which topic they would like to discuss first. After 20 minutes, a gong sounds and the participants switch to another topic.

Since both the experts and the participants come from different disciplines and fields of work, they all bring different prior knowledge, perspectives and interests to the table topics. The goal is to develop a network of new insights and perspectives. Finally, the most important results will be summarized once again for everyone and introduced into the subsequent panel discussion.

Moderation: Philipp Müller, Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung

The MWS-Europe-Lab will be in English.

Table Topic 1: Envisioning Europe(s)

Like any other space, the spatial concept of the European Union and its components is the product of social practices that are often in contradiction or competition with each other. The thematic table especially addresses how multiple, conflicting, and intersecting visions and mental maps of Europe have contributed to shaping the course of European integration.

Table hosts: Olga Gontarska (“Entangled History of the Eastern Enlargement. Change or Continuity of Euroscepticism”) and Antonio Carbone (“(De)constructing Mediterranean Europe: Farmers Facing the Southern Enlargement, (1970s–1980s)”)

Table Topic 2: Competition of European Alternatives

Throughout the history of European integration alternative visions of ‘Europe’ and models for integration have competed against each other. At this table participants will be introduced to several historical ‘alternatives’ to the modern EU as we know it, from EFTA in the 1960s to the Visegrád Group in the 1990s. Participants will be encouraged to discuss and debate case studies from both the Western and Eastern European perspectives within their historical contexts.

Table hosts: Beata Jurkowicz (“Pathways of Euroscepticism. From Opposition to Communism to the Resistance to European Integration”) and David Lawton (“Eurosceptic ‘Futures Past’ in Britain, 1980-2000 – the Emergence of a Trans-Sectoral Network”)

Table Topic 3: A Union of Sceptics

Since Maastricht, the new “cottage industry” of studies analysing “Euroscepticism” has tended to isolate the phenomenon behind a clearly-demarcated line, separating it from the linear trajectory of European integration. But is this a faithful representation of history? A quick look to so-called “Eurosceptic” heroes like Charles de Gaulle and Margaret Thatcher, who influenced the genesis of the European Council and Single European Act, shows that such a line is an arbitrary construct within a mercurial political arena.

Table hosts: Andrea Carlo Martinez (“Europe Constructed, Europe Contested: the Media in the Early Days of the European Project”) and Alexander Hobe (“The Right-Wing Disenchantment with European Integration in Germany and France from 1945 to the 1980s”)

Table Topic 4: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The history of the ECSC/EEC/EU is one of entries and exits. “Should I stay or should I go” springs to mind. While this is the title of a song by The Clash, it does reflect the charged emotions, conflicted ideals and alternative visions which characterise debates and discussions relating to entry and exit. There is a degree of uncertainty, a variety of arguments, and a multitude of questions as to why, when, and how. We aim to draw a historically coherent, if slightly messy, picture of those who want(ed) to be part or become part of “Europe” and those who want(ed) to leave it.

Table hosts: Katharina Troll (“Opportunism or Scepticism? British and German Business Associations Facing Europeanization”) and William King (“Alternative Visions of European Integration: MEPs and the European Parliament, 1979-1989”)

Podiumsdiskussion

Unter Einbeziehung der Ergebnisse des MWS-Europe-Lab diskutiert das Podium, wie Skepsis und Krisen Europa formen. Es hinterfragt prominente Darstellungsmuster der europäischen Erfolgsgeschichte und setzt die Probleme der Gegenwart zu Problemen in der Vergangenheit in Beziehung. Die Podiumsdiskussion leistet damit nicht zuletzt einen Beitrag zu der Debatte, ob die europäische Integration an einem Wendpunkt ihrer Geschichte angelangt ist.

  • Martin Baumeister, Direktor des Deutschen Historischen Instituts Rom
  • Christina von Hodenberg, Direktorin des Deutschen Historischen Instituts London
  • Wolfgang Knöbl, Direktor des Hamburger Instituts für Sozialforschung

In our study we expand the future of work debate from paid to unpaid domestic work. One objective is the supply side. We conducted a forecasting exercise (Delphi survey) in which 65 AI experts from the UK and Japan estimated how automatable are 17 housework and care work tasks, paying attention to how experts’ backgrounds may shape their estimates. On average experts predicted that 39 percent of the time spent on a domestic task will be automatable within ten years. Japanese male experts were notably pessimistic about the potentials of domestic automation, pointing to gender disparities in the Japanese household. Our contributions are to provide the first quantitative estimates concerning the future of unpaid work and to demonstrate how such predictions are socially contingent, with implications to forecasting methodology. Another objective is the demand side, asking consumers in Japan and UK about their willingness to use smart technologies. We investigate how willingness to use smart technologies varies across gender, household income, time pressure, type of domestic work, and its price. This presentation is part of the project The Future of Unpaid Work: AI’s potential to transform unpaid domestic work in the UK and Japanled by Nobuko Nagase (Ochanomizu University) and Ekaterina Hertog (Oxford University).

Lulu Shi, sociologist, researches technology, education, and work. She works on the project DomesticAI as a postdoctoral fellow. Lulu also leads a project investigating how educational technology (EdTech) transforms education, specifically the role of EdTech firms in shaping education by considering the socio-political contexts they are embedded in.

Nobuko Nagase, professor of Labor Economics and Social Policy at Ochanomizu University, Tokyo, has written about work and family in the Asian perspective, comparing Japan with other East Asian and Western economies. Interests include wage structure and work choice, labor market regulations and social security, institutional effects on work and gender, marital behavior and child-birth timing.

On 24 February 2022, Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Half a year later, the outcome of the ongoing war in Ukraine is still open. What has become clear, however, is that Ukraine is dependent on continuous financial and military support from its European and US allies. This is complicated in turn by Europe's dependency on Russian oil and gas to power its economy. IES invites you for a conversation on the war and its consequences for Europe and NATO with two experts on Russian and Ukrainian history, Ulf Brunnbauer, Director of the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies at the University of Regensburg, and Soeren Urbansky, historian of Russia at the German Historical Institute Washington.

Over the years, Tosun Merey pursued further studies, married a German woman, had children, worked for German companies in Germany and abroad, and tried, in various ways and with varying degrees of success, to “become German.” Can Merey’s book offers a backward glance at his father’s longstanding attempt to integrate against the backdrop of shifting attitudes and changing historical, social, and personal circumstances.

This event was organized to celebrate the completion of the German History Intersections project, whose three modules—migration, Germanness, and knowledge—take up some of the main themes addressed in Der ewige Gast. The program will begin with a brief introduction by GHI director and Intersections project leader Simone Lässig, who will then hand things over to Can Merey and discussant Michael Printy, a historian of Germany and contributor to the Intersections project. At the end of the program, attendees will have an opportunity to pose questions and make comments. Mark your calendars and join us on September 13!

A laborious “double weaving” process (developed in 1907) coupled to a program of dyework allows a pre-planned pattern to materialize at every intersecting warp and weft of raw silk thread as a weaver sends her shuttle back and forth across her loom. The plant life and iron-rich rice paddy mud of the humid subtropical islands of Amami Ōshima also play a part in the resulting textile, as dyemasters use them to create the deep brown-black pigment that is distinctive of the region. Even though designers have been confined to the geometry of squares, the patterns appearing on these textiles have changed remarkably over time, well after the material of the textiles changed from short-fiber pongee yarns to raw silk. Why? This talk reflects upon recent fieldwork conducted in Amami Ōshima driven by this simple question. Study of the dynamic process of textile production illuminates the complicated archipelagic location between Kagoshima and Okinawa that has informed Ōshima tsumugi production and trade. Assumptions about the heritage of this tsumugi weaving knowledge was especially tested during the 1970s when Amami Ōshima weavers and their supporters were compelled to protest the outflow of their technology, materials, and know-how to South Korea. Tracing how weavers themselves scrutinized the notion of Amami Ōshima tsumugi enables critical contextualization of the postwar consumption of Amami Ōshima tsumugi by the “mainland” relative to the preservation of archipelagic knowledge and livelihood. Furthermore, this precariousness overlapped with environmental precarity that faced Amami Ōshima at the time. The late twentieth-century movement that redefined Amami Ōshima tsumugi as life-giving and requiring of protection provides an important contrast for understanding the 2021 UNESCO designation of Amami Ōshima as a “natural” World Heritage Site and how the textile persists to this day.

Details of this symposium, incl. its programme, will be published on this website in August.

Organizers: Barbara Geilhorn (Deutsches Institut für Japanstudien) and Gunhild Borggreen (University of Copenhagen)

Since the beginning of the new millennium, regional arts projects and festivals have sprung up in many places in rural Japan, including the Triennial in Echigo-Tsumari and the Toyooka theater festival. Many regions anticipate a cultural boost in the form of such events to create new types of social, cultural and economic capital in the area. Some rural communities also engage with art projects to promote countryside lifestyles and environmental awareness.

The symposium investigates the potential of the arts to develop creative responses to the multiple challenges and opportunities of the Japanese regions in an interdisciplinary environment, including scholars of Visual and Performing Arts, Cultural Policy, Japanese Studies, Tourism Studies, and Social Anthropology, as well as artists and practitioners. We follow Michael Woods’ concept of a “global countryside” as “a hypothetical space, corresponding to a condition of the global interconnectivity and interdependency of rural localities” [Woods, M. 2007. “Engaging the global countryside: globalization, hybridity and the reconstitution of rural place.” Progress in Human Geography 31(4): 492] to scrutinize the interrelatedness of local, national and global flows as represented by recent developments in visual and performing arts. This is a suitable approach, since both forms of arts are increasingly merging into each other. The symposium aims to look into socio-cultural discourse and innovation triggered by the arts in the Japanese regions, thereby addressing issues that are relevant for Japanese society as a whole and well beyond.

Janaki Nair (New Delhi)
The Classroom as Sensorium: Tactility, Attention, and Perception in the Mysore School, 1860–1930

How was the hand to be guided, the eye to be trained, the senses sharpened in preparing the child for an adult world?  In princely Mysore in southern India, the missionaries, who took the initial steps in opening up education to wider circles than those entitled to forms of knowledge, and the Government efforts that followed were faced with new and complex challenges in a society wracked by the proscriptions of caste and gender. On the one hand, the classroom presented opportunities for ordering space and time, and for remaking bodies and habits in the process of building new skills.
But the classroom and the boarding school were perforce also sites of unlearning, of breaking down habits and prejudices relating to touch/sight, as well as older skills and styles of learning, in order to enable the modern educated subject to emerge. A small but suggestive body of visual and other records allows for speculation  about the experience of schooling in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Mysore.


Janaki Nair taught Modern History at the Centre for Historical Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, and since retirement has also taught at Azim Premji University, Bengaluru. Most of her research, teaching, and writing have been on labour, urban, and legal history, feminist history, and visual culture. Her books include Mysore Modern: Rethinking the Region under Princely Rule (2011); The Promise of the Metropolis: Bangalore’s Twentieth Century (2005); and Women and Law in Colonial India: A Social History (1996).

July 22, 2022 / 6.30–7.30pm JST/11.30am–12.30pm CEST

Forum Mithani, Cardiff University & Waseda University

The publication of Hahaoya ni natte kōkai shiteiru (Regretting Motherhood) in March 2022 attracted significant attention in the Japanese press, broadcast and social media. Segments on NHK’s television and radio stations were devoted to the book and the reaction it provoked. Articles in publications such as the weekly Bunshun magazine published excerpts and there was much discussion on Twitter under the hashtag #母親になって後悔している. This follows waves of interest across the globe since the book, by Israeli sociologist Orna Donath, was first published in 2017 and subsequently translated into multiple languages across Europe, North America and Asia. Donath’s provocative study has caused outrage as well as earned praise for its tackling of a subject that remains a taboo in many societies, not least of all in Japan: women who express regret for having become mothers. The voices of the many Japanese women who have expressed empathy with the subjects of Donath’s research are particularly striking.

This talk introduces Donath’s work, focusing in particular on the book’s reception in Japan, and what it reveals about the contemporary notions and conditions of motherhood in a society in which the low birth rate continues to raise alarm. I will address how unpacking the taboo of maternal regret can reframe discourses of womanhood and motherhood, be they social, political or academic.

Forum Mithani is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at Cardiff University and Visiting Research Fellow at Waseda University. She received her PhD from SOAS (University of London) in 2019. Her research focuses on Japanese media, literature and popular culture, gender, motherhood, feminism and social minorities.

Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne), Axel Jansen (GHI Washington)

While scholars agree that “there has never been systemic warfare between science and religion,” (J. Hardin/R. Numbers/R. Binzley) the history of religious approaches to science in the twentieth century remains understudied. Considering their prominent political role in many secular societies, the support and advancement of science and the humanities by conservative religious denominations since 1945 is of particular interest. Despite the sheer number of denominational colleges and universities that offer a wide range of advanced degrees in the humanities and in the sciences in the United States, for example, evangelicals are frequently dismissed as anti-intellectual. Many U.S. institutions considered secular today, furthermore, were founded and shaped by particular religious denominations. This workshop provides an opportunity to discuss ethnological, sociological, and historical case studies to investigate the evolution and the perhaps peculiar character of research and education associated with conservative religious institutions in the United States and in other countries since World War II.

JUL 14, 2022  | 6:00 - 8:00PM ET

Keynote Lecture on Zoom | Speaker: Delphine Diaz (University of Reims)

This keynote lecture is part of the Second Annual International Seminar in Historical Refugee Studies "Historicizing the Refugee Experience, 17th–21st Centuries" taking place at GHI Washington Jul 13-16, 2022. The lecture will be streamed via Zoom for non-conference participants who are interested in joining. 

The figure of the refugee has long been perceived as a man headed into solitary exile. However, if we re-examine the case of France as a land of departure and of asylum, other protagonists of forced migrations come into view, namely women and children, often treated as a single entity by the authorities. Starting in the 1830s and going through to the eve of the Second World War, this paper complicates the typical portrait of the refugee, shedding light on the place and increasing role played by women and children in exile, in France and in Europe.

Prabhu Mohapatra (Delhi)
A Genealogy of Labour Regulation in India: The Career of the Employment Contract

When was the employment contract introduced in India? This is a perfectly reasonable question, given that 93 per cent of the 50 million strong workforce in India is officially classed as ‘informal labour’, and that the much hyped Labour Codes, which have yet to be implemented, are more a mere assemblage of the fragments and ruins of the once vaunted Formal Employment Contract than coherent pieces of ‘code’. Despite this, the story of the forging of the Formal Employment Contract in the first decades of the twentieth century, of its tortuous career and eventual dismantling over the next hundred years may give us a clue to the persistent paradoxes of India’s labouring landscape. My presentation will examine how the employment contract came into being in India, and how it was transformed and destroyed over the last century.

Prabhu Mohapatra is Professor of Modern Indian History at the University of Delhi, where he teaches economic history, labour history, and global history of servitude to Masters students. He researches and supervises research on the history of long-distance migration, the history of education, the history of informality, and labour law. He has held appointments at the Humboldt University of Berlin, the University of Göttingen, the École normale supérieure, Cachan, the University of Amsterdam, Yale University, and the University of Cambridge.

Juni 2022 / 18:30h JST / 11:30h CEST

Ana Gascón Marcén, University of Zaragoza

The legal framework to protect personal data was first developed in Europe but has been adopted by countries all over the world. Japan is one example, whose Act on the Protection of Personal Information has followed a path of convergence with the European regime (GDPR). Japan has faced the dilemma of developing such a law while at the same time constructing an environment to better exploit data for innovation. This has given rise to other data regulations like text and data mining exceptions or the Smart Cities Law.

In a digitalized world, the trans-border flow of data has become essential for trade and the exchange of services, but some protectionist trends are gaining ground at the international level, such as data localization. Japan is one of the convenors of the WTO e-commerce negotiations, and as a firm believer in the free market and multilateral trade, Japan has tried to export the same idea that applies internally. This is why Shinzo Abe coined the expression Data Free Flow With Trust, a concept whose objective is to ease the flow of data but with the necessary safeguards for cybersecurity, personal data, or intellectual property. This talk will assess Japan’s push for this concept at the international level, including its successes but also challenges, and it will put it in relation with other relevant actors, such as the United States, the EU and China.

Dr. Ana Gascón Marcén is an Associate Professor in Public International Law and EU Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Zaragoza (Spain). She is a member of the Multidisciplinary Research Group „Japan“. Her main research topics are Human Rights, the interplay of Law and Information and Telecommunication Technologies (especially personal data protection) and the comparison of Japanese Law with EU Law. She is also a civil servant of the Information Society Department of the Council of Europe, currently on personal leave.

Polish Republic was founded in 1918 and was able to defend its independence against Bolsheviks in the following years. The Peace Treaty of Riga (1921) was, however, rather a cease-fire and the Soviet Union conducted multilevel pressure on Poland trying to import revolution and to back ethnic separatism. Warsaw’s answer was the strategy of Prometheanism, covert financial and moral support for non-Russian exile elites of the former Tsardom scattered in Paris, Contanta, Istanbul and other cities. Numerous representatives of Crimean and Kazan Tatars, North Caucasians, Azeris, Turkestanis and Ukrainians found refuge in the early 1920s in Istanbul.

Poland supported and (co-)financed several edition and publication projects of those political emigrants and heavily contributed to the emergence of Turkish anti-Communist thought.

Juni 2022 / 6.30pm (JST)/11.30am (CEST)

Timo Thelen, Kanazawa University

Aging inhabitants, economic decline of the primary sector, outmigration of the young generations – the postgrowth state of Japan’s peripheries challenges local communities to sustain rural living in the globalized age. To stop or even reverse this structural decline, various actors such as regional governments and research institutions forge strategies of revitalization, following national aims as well as global frameworks. For the investigation of these new and complex formations of power and knowledge in rural Japan, actor-and-network theory (ANT) can provide a window to shed light on how different allies find their goals unified in a common project and how links between centers and peripheries are established. It can, moreover, help to understand the impacts that such projects may – or may not – have on the local communities, which are supposed to benefit from them.

Timo Thelen will introduce some basic ideas of ANT and STS (science and technology studies) as coined by Bruno Latour (Pandora’s Hope, 1999) and give advice on their practical employment as tools for analysis and interpretation of ethnographic fieldwork data based on his own experience. By drawing on examples from his recent publication “Revitalization and Internal Colonialism in Rural Japan” (Routledge, 2022), he will discuss the potential of such a research approach for the study of rural Japan.

Timo Thelen is Lecturer at Kanazawa University, where he teaches Cultural Anthropology and German as a Foreign Language. He received his PhD from Dusseldorf University in 2018. His research focuses on rural Japan, media tourism, LGBTQ, and horror. Recent publications include “Between 1990s’ Nostalgia and ‘LGBT-friendly’ Tokyo Olympics: Representations of LGBTQ People in NHK’s Morning Drama Series” (Japanese Studies, 2021) and “Real Mermaid vs. Nuclear Power Plant: Ecofeminist Vengeance and Ama Divers in Japanese Horror” (Gothic Nature, 2021).

Andreas Reckwitz (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Verlust. Die andere Seite des Fortschritts

Kommentar: Paul-André Rosental (Sciences Po)

Die moderne Gesellschaft basiert auf positiven Zukunftserwartungen, zugespitzt auf Vorstellungen des Fortschritts. Deren Kehrseite ist eine moderne Verlustvergessenheit: Verlusterfahrungen von Individuen oder Gruppen kommt in der Moderne kein legitimer Ort zu, auch in den Sozialwissenschaften wurden sie lange Zeit nur am Rande zum Thema. Der Vortrag will den Ansatz zu einer Soziologie des Verlusts skizzieren. Er arbeitet die moderne Paradoxie von Verlustpotenzierung, Verlustminimierung und Praktiken der Verarbeitung von Verlusten heraus. Denn tatsächlich spielen Verlustdynamiken beim sozialen Wandel eine erhebliche Rolle und namentlich in der spätmodernen Gegenwart treten – zwischen Modernisierungsverlierern und Klimawandel – Verlusterfahrungen mehr und mehr in den Vordergrund der Öffentlichkeit.

JUN 08, 2022  | 12PM ET

Virtual Lecture | Speaker: Joachim Schlör (University of Southampton); comment: Leora Auslander (University of Chicago)

First lecture in the series “In Global Transit: Exploring Migrants’ Liminal Spaces and Phases,” organized by Simone Lässig, Carolin Liebisch-Gümüş, and Swen Steinberg (GHI Washington)

Much of Joachim Schlör's recent work has been based on German-Jewish family letters. Written between 1933 and 1941, during the process of emigration from Germany to a wide range of places “irgendwo auf der Welt”, the letters themselves – as well as, of course, their content – form part of a condition of in-between-ness. With his background in ethnography, Joachim Schlör adds a cultural-historical perspective to the fields of Jewish Studies and Migration Studies and reads the sources as elements of a cultural practice: The ‘home world’ has become unbearable, and people prepare for their emigration. The ‘course of these days’ is insecure and, for good or for bad, open. After leaving a certain ‘here’, and before arriving in a different ‘there’, emigrants found themselves in waiting rooms and at border control stations, in trains and aboard ships. In many sources, this liminal status produced different modes of reflection about the past, the future, and the state in which they found themselves - in the words of Robert Weltsch: "Where are we standing? Where are we headed? What eternal values do we recognize?” (“Zwischen Alter und Neuer Welt. Jüdische Rundschau, 26.3.1934). Joachim Schlör asks whether this transitory experience has also created a transitory state of mind.


ABOUT THE SERIES


In Global Transit: Exploring Migrants’ Liminal Spaces and Phases

Media coverage about refugee boats on the Mediterranean, transit camps on Aegean islands, migrant children in US border custody, or so-called refugees in orbit remind us on a daily basis of the experiences, precariousness, and politics of being in transit. History has seen innumerable stories of refugees and other migrants with long and twisted itineraries; traveling could take weeks, months, or, when longer stopovers occurred, sometimes years, with the final destination often unknown. Only recently have historians started to follow colleagues from other disciplines in developing analytical tools for exploring “migration along the way.” What can be learned from a focus on transit? Which stories do we find at concrete spaces such as camps, visa offices, ships, airports, and along the routes that connect them? Starting from these questions, the lecture series explores the relevance of transit as an innovative research agenda and the different methods available for grasping the spatial, temporal, sociopolitical, material, and cultural dimensions of in-betweenness. It provides a space for reflecting on the methodological problems and blind spots that necessarily arise when investigating a phenomenon as fluid as transit.

The virtual lecture series “Exploring Migrants’ Liminal Spaces and Phases,” organized by Simone Lässig, Carolin Liebisch-Gümüş, and Swen Steinberg, is part of the GHI’s research focus “In Global Transit.” Bringing together experts on migration and refugee studies from different disciplines and thematic areas in the Summer and Fall of 2022, it opens an interdisciplinary conversation across contexts about the methods, potentials, and challenges of studying transit. Building on past conferences and workshops at the GHI since 2018, which have focused on the global trajectories of Jewish refugees fleeing from Nazi persecution, it also encourages dialogue between the rich research on Jewish refugees in transit and general research on flight and (forced) migration in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The evolution of human societies can be seen to be supported by the rise of dominant narratives – religions or political ideologies, which in turn reflect the technological regimes of the times. Technology changes not only our means of production; it influences how we interact with our environment, how we perceive ourselves and our place in the world and what we consider as “good” or “bad”. The present revolutions in information technology and bioscience seem to contradict the basic assumptions of liberalism. Platform monopolies, fake news, and surveillance capitalism equally undermine liberal institutions.

The present pandemic has also dramatically questioned the liberal foundations of public policies and governance in democratic regimes. The restrictive policy measures adopted in the fight against Covid-19 have produced “illiberal” outcomes similar to the stances taken by populist political parties. High-level constraints impact individual liberties, responsibility, social cohesion and/or social control, but also free trade, competitiveness, and market regulation. How far are citizens prepared to accept trade-offs between civil liberties and public guarantees regarding health, environment, and safety? How are these constraints dealt with in so-called “liberal” or neoliberal” democratic countries?

The above issue is of central and essential concern for Japan and Europe and their relationships with neighbours and major partners. Taking into consideration growing pressure from a more competitive environment, Japan and Europe need to redefine their understanding of core values with regard to economic, social, and individual rights to redirect their relationships not only at an intellectual and discursive level, e.g. science and “soft-power”, but also in practical terms such as national and international policies.

Rather than falling into the trap of cultural and civilizational determinism, this symposium aims to stress sociopolitical, philosophical, and economic logics at work in the process of changes in production and exchange caused by the transformation of technological regimes and the ongoing global crisis. In doing so, we also intend to shed renewed light on the reception and the evolution of the liberal ideology in Asia and Europe, especially in Japan, France, and Germany.

Claudia Weber (Universität Frankfurt an der Oder), Jenseits der Erinnerungsmaschine. Der Zweite Weltkrieg zwischen Neubetrachtung und Geschichtspolitik

Kommentar: Olivier Wieviorka (ENS-Paris-Saclay)

Geopolitik macht Geschichte und Geschichte macht Erinnerung. Die Historikerin Claudia Weber diskutiert den Zusammenhang zwischen der Neuverteilung politischer Macht in Europa und dem Wandel historischer Narrative. Er wird insbesondere in den Deutungskämpfen um den Zweiten Weltkrieg sichtbar. Während die russische Geschichtspolitik auf eine andere Periodisierung der Weltkriegsgeschichte abhebt, stellen Staaten wie Polen die Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Diktaturen in den Vordergrund und Westeuropa besteht auf dem Holocaust als dem zentralen Erinnerungsfokus. Für die Geschichtswissenschaft ist die »Öffnung der Vergangenheit« Chance und Gefahr zugleich: sie ermöglicht Neubetrachtungen ebenso wie ihre zunehmende politische Instrumentalisierung.

Lisa Weigert, The Depiction of Britain on the Gough Map. Its Sources and its Authorship


Die methodische Ausrichtung zahlreicher Dissertationsprojekte zur mittelalterlichen Geschichte Westeuropas zeugt von der Aktualität wissensgeschichtlicher Zugänge. Im September 2021 veröffentlichte Marian Füssel das erste Einführungswerk zum in der Mediävistik jungen Themenfeld. Er betont darin, dass sich das große Erkenntnispotential der Wissensgeschichte erst im historiographischen Arbeiten selbst offenbart. Während theoretische Überlegungen und anwendungsbezogene Untersuchungen in neuen deutschen und französischen Publikationen zur Diskussion stehen, fehlt es an einer Plattform, die jungen Mediävisten und Mediävistinnen offensteht. Quo vadis bietet hier einen niedrigschwelligen Weg für fortgeschrittene Masterstudierende und Doktoranden und Doktorandinnen. In sieben Sitzungen stellen Nachwuchswissenschaftlerinnen und Nachwuchswissenschaftler ihre Projekte sowie einen Grundlagentext ihrer Untersuchung vor. Die Texte werden den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern vorab zugesandt und anschließend zur Diskussion gestellt.  Durch diesen Austausch sollen sich deutsch-französische Forschungswege kreuzen, um in gemeinsamer Blickrichtung eine der wenigen »terrae incognitae« der Geschichtswissenschaft zu ergründen, wie Christian Jacobs es in seiner Einleitung zu den mehrbändigen Lieux de savoir formulierte. Hierzu beschränkt sich das Seminar nicht nur auf die historische Mediävistik, sondern profitiert von interdisziplinären Zugängen u. a. aus der Romanistik, Germanistik und Soziologie.

GHIL JOINT LECTURE (Deutsches Historisches Institut London)

Ute Frevert (Berlin)
The Power of Emotions in German History

In co-operation with the Modern German History Seminar, IHR

Everyone knows from experience that emotions are powerful: they motivate us to act in a certain way, they colour our experiences and shape our memories. But what impact do they have on history? What do we learn about history from looking through the lens of emotions? And what do we learn about emotions by applying a historical perspective? The talk explores those questions with regard to Germany in the twentieth century, a period of dramatic changes that deeply affected people’s lives, mindsets, and feelings.

Ute Frevert is Director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, where she founded the Center for the History of Emotions in 2008. She has previously been a professor of modern history at the universities of Berlin, Konstanz, Bielefeld, and Yale. She is a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. Her book Powerful Emotions in German History will be published by CUP later this year.

This lecture will take place as a hybrid event at the GHIL and online via Zoom. In order to register for this event, please follow this link to Eventbrite.

Registration Information
The workshop will take place online via Zoom. To attend this online workshop, prior registration is necessary: Please send an email specifying your name and academic affiliation to events[at]oiist.net by Friday, May 27, 2022 at the latest. For technical reasons, the number of participants is limited. You will be informed about the organizational and technical procedure before the beginning of the workshop.

This workshop series aims to bring together approaches from musicology, historical ethnography, anthropology of religion and cultural studies in exploring experiences of the city. Moving away from ocularcentrism, we wish to enquire into the city’s past and its present as a multisensorial experience. How do sound, smell, taste, touch, and the involvement of other senses, happen to be vital in cultural practices of dwelling and movement? How was the city heard in the past? How is it remembered in terms of smell? How can we hear or feel touched by what is present or absent? And what research practices can grasp such sensations? Istanbul, for centuries known as »the City«, is both the place where this online workshop is hosted and a point of reference and return for the conversation we are looking forward to. The workshop series will open up a forum for exchange between eminent scholars and younger researchers. With a keynote by anthropologist and musicologist Peter McMurray (University of Cambridge), the first workshop of the series on May 30, 2022 will focus on auralities, senses and atmospheres in Istanbul, past and present.

The last few years have seen a burst of new scholarship on social movements in 1970s and 1980s Germany, including gay and lesbian movements, new visions of conservatism, and antiracist activism that arose in East and West Germany. Drawing on a diversity of archives, oral histories, and printed sources, these new studies make a forceful case for the centrality of these social movements to understanding the social, political, and cultural histories of East and West Germany. At the same time, they help us rethink the contours of social movements, by integrating previously overlooked actors and perspectives and by questioning the totems of traditional political and activist historiography. This virtual roundtable discussion, which we propose to take place in mid-May 2022, will feature four scholars who focus on the 1970s and 1980s in East and West Germany and whose work both constitutes and engages with this new historiography on and beyond social movements in this period. The discussion will offer a forum for these scholars not only to engage with the ways in which questions of race, class, sexuality, gender, and ideology shape our understanding of social and political movements, but also to think through how this new scholarship has recast the historiography of Cold War Germany. Because of the breadth of interest in this new scholarship, this roundtable will be of interest to a wide array of junior and senior scholars in multiple countries. Because the roundtable will be conducted virtually, we anticipate a large audience and lively engagement in a Q&A session following the discussion.

Isabelle Deflers (Universität der Bundeswehr München), »Philosophes in Uniform«: aufklärerisches Denken über Armee, Krieg und Frieden im 18. Jahrhundert

Kommentar: Antoine Lilti (EHESS)

Da allein im 18. Jahrhundert gut sechzig Jahre Krieg mit deutscher Beteiligung herrschte, waren die Vertreter der Aufklärung zwangsläufig mit Kriegsmaschinerie, Schlachten, Kriegspropaganda und politischen Folgen kriegerischer Gewalt konfrontiert. Die Offiziere und Militärexperten ihrerseits blieben als angehörige einer ausgebildeten Elite von den neuen Ideen der Aufklärung nicht unberührt. Die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Militär und Aufklärung sind aber bisher kaum untersucht worden. In meinem Projekt geht es deshalb darum, zu fragen, inwiefern die Ideen der Aufklärung die Ausbildung sowohl der Offiziere als auch der Soldaten sowie die Art und Weise, wie Krieg geführt werden sollte, beeinflusst haben. Wie reagierten die Aufklärer und die Öffentlichkeit insgesamt auf das Militär und auf das Kriegsphänomen und durch welche Mittel, Wege und Akteure fand die Zirkulation der Ideen im Alltag statt. Anhand neuer Erkenntnisse über den Comte de Guibert, als Inbegriff des »philosophe in Uniform«, werden einige Merkmale der »Lumières militaires« in einer deutsch-französischen Perspektive dargestellt.

Florian Schreiber, Fürst – Universität – Geld. Eine vergleichende Untersuchung der Finanzen der Universitäten Heidelberg und Freiburg bis zum Ausbruch des Dreißigjährigen Kriegs

Die methodische Ausrichtung zahlreicher Dissertationsprojekte zur mittelalterlichen Geschichte Westeuropas zeugt von der Aktualität wissensgeschichtlicher Zugänge. Im September 2021 veröffentlichte Marian Füssel das erste Einführungswerk zum in der Mediävistik jungen Themenfeld. Er betont darin, dass sich das große Erkenntnispotential der Wissensgeschichte erst im historiographischen Arbeiten selbst offenbart. Während theoretische Überlegungen und anwendungsbezogene Untersuchungen in neuen deutschen und französischen Publikationen zur Diskussion stehen, fehlt es an einer Plattform, die jungen Mediävisten und Mediävistinnen offensteht. Quo vadis bietet hier einen niedrigschwelligen Weg für fortgeschrittene Masterstudierende und Doktoranden und Doktorandinnen. In sieben Sitzungen stellen Nachwuchswissenschaftlerinnen und Nachwuchswissenschaftler ihre Projekte sowie einen Grundlagentext ihrer Untersuchung vor. Die Texte werden den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern vorab zugesandt und anschließend zur Diskussion gestellt.  Durch diesen Austausch sollen sich deutsch-französische Forschungswege kreuzen, um in gemeinsamer Blickrichtung eine der wenigen »terrae incognitae« der Geschichtswissenschaft zu ergründen, wie Christian Jacobs es in seiner Einleitung zu den mehrbändigen Lieux de savoir formulierte. Hierzu beschränkt sich das Seminar nicht nur auf die historische Mediävistik, sondern profitiert von interdisziplinären Zugängen u. a. aus der Romanistik, Germanistik und Soziologie.

    Abstract
    This talk analyzes the texture, richness, and complexity of intellectual life at the late Mamluk court. By focusing on how members of the court voiced, affirmed, and negotiated various identities in the areas of law, gender, and Quranic exegesis, the talk demonstrates that late Mamluk court culture was characterized by a much higher level of internal diversity and intellectual activity than heretofore assumed. This analysis of Mamluk court culture is based on a close reading of accounts of the majālis or learned salons that the penultimate Mamluk ruler Qāniṣawh al-Ghawrī convened at the Cairo Citadel during most of his reign, which lasted from 1501 to 1516. The accounts of these events allow unique insights into how members of al-Ghawrī’s court developed novel intellectual strategies that addressed the legal, political, and theological challenges of the day and contributed to a vibrant scholarly life during a period that is still all too often associated with an alleged cultural decline of the Islamic world.


    Bio
    Christian Mauder (PhD 2017, University of Göttingen) is an intellectual, religious, and social historian of the Islamic world, with a focus on the late middle and early modern periods. Since 2020, he serves as associate professor in the study of religions at the University of Bergen. Before coming to Bergen, he completed postdoctoral appointments at Yale University, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New York University Abu Dhabi, and the University of Bonn.

    Großsiedlungen und Barackenlager am Stadtrand waren im 20. Jahrhundert Beobachtungs- und Experimentierfelder. Zeitgenossinnen und Zeitgenossen wollten sich in diesen urbanen Räumen immer wieder ein Bild von den sozialen Problemen ihrer Gegenwart machen. Diese Faszination, die von den als »urbane Problemzonen« identifizierten Quartieren ausgeht, untersucht Christiane Reinecke. Ihr Buch plädiert dafür, den damaligen Blick auf soziale Ungleichheit im Raum und in der Wissensgeschichte zu situieren. Ungleichheit existierte nicht einfach, sie wurde von Experten postuliert, studiert und bearbeitet. Reinecke untersucht, wie sich diese Quartiere und die Diskussion über sie angesichts von urbaner Modernisierung, Dekolonisation und Deindustrialisierung wandelten. Sie zeigt, wie der Abschied von der Klassengesellschaft und die ethnische Diversifizierung den Nahraum Stadt seit den 1950er Jahren verändert haben.

    An Beispielen wie Noisy-le-Grand und den Waldhof-Baracken in Mannheim, Sarcelles, Les Minguettes bei Lyon, dem Märkischen Viertel in Berlin und München entwirft Christiane Reinecke (Europa-Univ. Flensburg) eine neue urbane Erzählung sozialer Ungleichheit. Darüber wird sie mit Fabien Jobard (CNRS/Cesdip), Corine Defrance (CNRS/Paris 1/Sirice) und Ulrich Pfeil (univ. de Lorraine/Cegil) diskutieren.

    Organized by the Leo Baeck Institute London in cooperation with the German Historical Institute London

    In general, East German television attempted to combine so-called ‘political-operational cultural work’ with attractive programming. The same balancing act can also be observed in the presentation of Jewish topics and characters on TV. This talk covers so-called anti-fascist films about the Nazi era; campaign films against the West, e. g. courtroom dramas and crime movies; the aspect of ‘Jewish heritage’; Yiddish music; and Jewish contributions to entertainment shows.

    Dr des Lisa Schoß is a scholar of film and literature. Her monograph Von verschiedenen Standpunkten. Die Darstellung jüdischer Erfahrungen im Film der DDR (From Differing Perspectives, The Representation of the Jewish Experience) is forthcoming.

    For decades, Germany was following a policy on China that emphasized the potential benefits from trade and investment. Berlin hoped that intensive economic relations would contribute to the transformation of the People’s Republic to a democracy and to a market economy. Of course, Germany, or rather some parts of German society, benefitted from this arrangement. The country’s exports to China are larger than the exports of the next ten European Union economies combined. The new German government has embraced a different policy: Like in most other European countries, China is increasingly seen as a competitor and a challenge. The Russian invasion in Ukraine has further strengthened those policy makers who advocate more distancing from China.

    Kommentar: Alessandro Stanziani (EHESS)

    Insofern die Globalgeschichte in den Universitäten und in der Öffentlichkeit Deutschlands, Frankreichs und mehrerer anderer Länder als »erfolgreich« betrachtet werden kann, verdankt sie dies dem freien Experimentieren mit vielen verschiedenen Arten und Formen von Globalgeschichte, Weltgeschichte und transnationaler Geschichte. Nach einer Pionierphase, die in den 1990er Jahren begann, stellt sich nunmehr die Frage, ob Globalgeschichte nicht nur farbige Geschichten erzählen kann, sondern auch den Ansprüchen historischer Methodologie genügt. Ist sie zum Beispiel fähig, überzeugende Erklärungen komplexer Sachverhalte zu entwickeln? Und wie geht sie mit einer Methode um, die eng mit der Suche nach Erklärungen verbunden ist – dem Vergleich?

    Register online

    Communes in the early twentieth century were an integral part of the modern world. Despite being located at the geographical, political, and social margins of modern society, these communes never existed in enclosed circles. They were both a niche and hub for radicals, revolutionaries and reformers, and their doing utopia in seeking a better world. This talk investigates communal life in various places of the non-Western world, including unionized South Africa, imperial Japan, and colonial Jamaica. And it discusses the possibilities of communal living and subjectivity beyond capital, empire, and state power.

     

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER


    Robert Kramm holds a doctoral degree in history from ETH Zurich and is a Freigeist-Fellow in the School of History at LMU Munich. At LMU, he is the principal investigator of the research group “Radical Utopian Communities” funded by the VolkswagenStiftung, and a member of the Munich Centre for Global History and the Center for Advanced Studies. Before coming to Munich, he was a post-doctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities at the University of Hong Kong and the Kulturwissenschaftliches Kolleg in Konstanz. His field is global history, history of everyday life and modern Japanese, European, and North American history with a combined focus on the history of the body, race and sexuality, and anarchism and communal life. His first book, Sanitized Sex, was published in 2017 by University of California Press, and he co-edited Global Anti-Vice Activism: Fighting Drinks, Drugs, and ‘Immorality’ (Cambridge University Press, 2016).

     

    ABOUT THE LECTURE SERIES


    Not the Usual Suspects: Everyday Agents of Globalization in the Twentieth Century

    This lecture series reassesses globalization from a bottom-up perspective. Globalization processes have typically been associated with intergovernmental organizations, multinational corporations, and NGOs. Less known are the “everyday” agents of economic, cultural, and political globalization: historical actors who initiated and promoted connection and exchange (intentionally and unintentionally) across world regions through their day-to-day activities. Backpacking tourists in postwar Europe, for instance, redefined the very idea of Europe with their cross-border itineraries and the many interactions with their host communities. The lecture series shines a spotlight on these and other drivers of globalization at the micro-social level. The different lectures discuss the activities of individual and group actors since the 1920s, covering a truly global range of geographies including the Middle East, East Asia, and the Caribbean. By applying an actor-centered approach to the study of twentieth-century globalization, the lecture series highlights the significance of globalization agents not usually suspected of playing this role.

    The contemporary syndemic of infectious diseases, chronic health conditions, poverty, rising heat, and the lack of access to education and information has brought into focus the fragilities of existing health care systems primarily based on medical centers and reliant on a small core of professionals. This suggests a need to investigate the historical evolution of not only health care systems but also the infrastructures that underlay them; how they have succeeded or failed to cope with epidemiological and other transitions in the long twentieth century that brought us to the present moment.   

    “Infrastructure” in Science and Technology Studies draws attention to institutions, materials, spaces, routines, and conventions that come together to shape and enable systems. Sociologists of health have adopted the concept of “care infrastructure” to engage with the interactions between material and social elements of present-day home care and selfcare practices against the backdrop of the perceived transition from the age of pestilence to the age of chronic non-communicable diseases. “Health infrastructure” can also broadly encompass historical variations of the socio-technical relations behind all kinds and scales of routine and emergency health services, with an emphasis on integrating those relations within the larger forces of changing demographics, inequality, environmental conditions, political claim making, and state-society as well as international relations.

    This workshop will investigate Asian experiences, and in particular those of East and Southeast Asia, in crafting health infrastructure over the long twentieth century. Asia has long been stigmatized as a source of global contagion, yet relatively little research about the fallout of epidemics in the region is available for an English readership. There has also been relatively little historical examination of the everyday health challenges faced by communities in Asia. With many lower-and middle-income countries in the region having faced epidemiological transitions, especially also due to the increasing impact of climate change, and its extensive internal and international migration and trade networks, Asia provides important ground for the comparison of different health infrastructures, their developments, and their ability to cope with crises.

    The workshop seeks to bring together scholars with different geographic foci within Asia to engage in a comparative and connective dialogue, and produce new ways of understanding the dynamics of health and disease under the processes of decolonization and development, but also with an eye to drawing lessons from the past that could lead to formulating better health policies in the present.  

    Participants are encouraged, but not limited, to using historical studies and ethnography to discuss the following thematic questions:

    • Are there particular types or elements of health infrastructure that we can characterize as more common or characteristic of this part of the world, and if so, what were their historic drivers and outcomes?
    • How was health infrastructure shaped by the political claims and rights of different social groups (e.g., migrants, minorities)? How has it been influenced by demographic and epidemiological shifts and complexities?
    • How have forces operating at a global level influenced the construction and operation of local health infrastructures?
    • How did encounters between indigenous and foreign medical knowledge and methods of health provision reshape the meaning of health infrastructure in postcolonial Asia?
    • How have health infrastructures developed under decolonisation, the Cold War, geopolitical tensions, the rise of Third Worldism, and neoliberal globalisation?
    • What health conditions were highlighted within Asian health infrastructures and how were they measured? What do those choices tell us about assumptions about the health issues that were of importance and relevance in Asia?

    Teresa Barucci, (Re)constructing Origin-Based Forms of Identity at the Late Medieval Universities of Paris and Orléans

    Die methodische Ausrichtung zahlreicher Dissertationsprojekte zur mittelalterlichen Geschichte Westeuropas zeugt von der Aktualität wissensgeschichtlicher Zugänge. Im September 2021 veröffentlichte Marian Füssel das erste Einführungswerk zum in der Mediävistik jungen Themenfeld. Er betont darin, dass sich das große Erkenntnispotential der Wissensgeschichte erst im historiographischen Arbeiten selbst offenbart. Während theoretische Überlegungen und anwendungsbezogene Untersuchungen in neuen deutschen und französischen Publikationen zur Diskussion stehen, fehlt es an einer Plattform, die jungen Mediävisten und Mediävistinnen offensteht. Quo vadis bietet hier einen niedrigschwelligen Weg für fortgeschrittene Masterstudierende und Doktoranden und Doktorandinnen. In sieben Sitzungen stellen Nachwuchswissenschaftlerinnen und Nachwuchswissenschaftler ihre Projekte sowie einen Grundlagentext ihrer Untersuchung vor. Die Texte werden den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern vorab zugesandt und anschließend zur Diskussion gestellt.  Durch diesen Austausch sollen sich deutsch-französische Forschungswege kreuzen, um in gemeinsamer Blickrichtung eine der wenigen »terrae incognitae« der Geschichtswissenschaft zu ergründen, wie Christian Jacobs es in seiner Einleitung zu den mehrbändigen Lieux de savoir formulierte. Hierzu beschränkt sich das Seminar nicht nur auf die historische Mediävistik, sondern profitiert von interdisziplinären Zugängen u. a. aus der Romanistik, Germanistik und Soziologie.

    news-7966 Mon, 11 Apr 2022 11:35:00 +0200 Staatsbürgerschaft – Norm und Praxis politischer Zugehörigkeit im Europa der Zwischenkriegszeit http://www.maxweberstiftung.de/aktuelles/termine/einzelansicht-veranstaltungen/detail/News/staatsbuergerschaft-norm-und-praxis-politischer-zugehoerigkeit-im-europa-der-zwischenkriegszeit.html 11.04.2022, Podiumsdiskussion, online Online und vor Ort: Staatsbürgerschaft – Norm und Praxis politischer Zugehörigkeit im Europa der Zwischenkriegszeit

    Die Podiumsdiskussion diskutiert Phänomene von Zugehörigkeit und Ausschluss und die vielfach zu beobachtende Diskrepanz zwischen rechtlicher Norm, politischer Ausgestaltung und administrativer Praxis.

    Seit dem 19. Jahrhundert hat Staatsbürgerschaft als Rechtsinstitution die europäischen Gesellschaften nachhaltig geprägt: Sie kennzeichnet die Zugehörigkeit zu einem Staat und spielt eine zentrale Rolle bei der Herausbildung der modernen Nation. Bis heute entscheidet sie über den Platz des Individuums, verschafft ihm Zugang zu sozialen Rechten, gesichertem Aufenthalt und politischer Mitsprache, und vermittelt ihm zugleich auch Pflichten. Unbestreitbar erlebte Staatsbürgerschaft im 20. Jahrhundert und besonders mit dem Ersten und Zweiten Weltkrieg eine fundamentale Transformation, als Kriterien von nationaler Zugehörigkeit von Grund auf neu gefasst, Einbürgerungspraktiken ausdifferenziert und Bürokratien ausgebaut wurden.

    Lange Zeit wurden Staatsangehörigkeit und Staatsbürgerschaft aus ideengeschichtlicher Perspektive betrachtet, die Herausbildung von Rechtsnormen und Institutionen wurde nach einem fast idealtypischen Schema zwischen den Polen westlich-universalistischer und ethnischer Tendenzen gedeutet. Inzwischen wird Staatsbürgerschaft stärker im Hinblick auf die institutionelle Ausgestaltung interpretiert sowie als Produkt komplexer Aushandlungsprozesse im Kontext wechselnder sozialer Realitäten. Staatsbürgerschaft war oft Ausdruck sozialer Hierarchien: Die damit verknüpften Rechte variierten entlang geschlechtlicher, ethnischer, kolonialer und politischer Trennlinien. Zugleich geraten der Zugang zu Staatsangehörigkeit und Staatsbürgerschaft genauso in den Blick wie historische Umwälzungen und Zäsuren, die zu deren Verlust und zur Ausbürgerung führten.

    Die Podiumsdiskussion geht dieser Geschichte nach, die sich sowohl vom Einzelfall her, in mikrogeschichtlicher Perspektive als auch aus transnationaler Perspektive erzählen lässt. Wir diskutieren Phänomene von Zugehörigkeit und Ausschluss und die vielfach zu beobachtende Diskrepanz zwischen rechtlicher Norm, politischer Ausgestaltung und administrativer Praxis in West-, Mittel und Osteuropa. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt auf der institutionellen Neufassung von Staatsbürgerschaft und Einbürgerung während der Zwischenkriegszeit bis circa 1945: Hier wurden Grundlagen gelegt für die Ausbürgerungen, die in Polen und der Tschechoslowakei in den 1930er Jahren und in Frankreich unter dem Vichy-Regime in großem Stil stattfanden.

    Was lässt sich über das Verständnis der Zeitgenossen von Nation, Nationalität und Staatsbürgerschaft lernen? Wie stand es um die (rechtliche) Stellung von Frauen? Lassen sich aus transnationaler oder globalhistorischer Perspektive das Phänomen Staatsbürgerschaft, seine komplexen Ausgestaltungen und Änderungen besser verstehen? Welche Einflüsse aus dem kolonialen Raum sind zu beobachten, der vielfach wie ein Laboratorium wirkte? Wie steht es um die Wahrnehmung der Betroffenen, welche Strategien zur Legitimierung und zum Schutz der (eigenen) Staatsangehörigkeit nutzten sie?

    Podiumsdiskussion in deutscher und französischer Sprache.

April 2022 / 18:30h JST

    Eric Häusler, Institute of Comparative Culture, Sophia University

    Cities around the globe experienced a transformative period in the 1960s. Tokyo’s population surpassed the 10 million threshold, its citizens benefited from the Japanese economic miracle and the 1964 Olympics symbolized Japan’s return to the global stage. Although the world’s largest metropolis struggled with negative consequences of rapid urbanization (air pollution, congestion, water shortages), its future was seen with great optimism. At the World Design Conference in 1960, architects presented a multiplicity of urban futures for Tokyo. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government launched international marketing endeavors and engaged in inter-city diplomacy. International airlines promoted the city as a jet-age destination and a series of luxury hotels were constructed in anticipation of visitors from all over the world. All these examples represent imagined futures (Jens Beckert) that help explain the dynamic development of capitalist societies.

    This presentation will characterize Tokyo as a world city in the making in the 1960s and introduce several of the imagined urban futures described above. Empirically, it will focus on the journal Ekistics that was launched in 1957 and has been addressing “the problems and science of human settlements” since then. The monthly issues of Ekistics offer unique insights into the global discourse on architecture, planning and urbanism. A review of the articles reveals how various contemporaries reacted to the tremendous urban transformations. The voices range from members of ‘the visible college of urbanists’ like architects Kenzo Tange and Fumihiko Maki to Tokyo’s ragpickers. Through the specific lens of Ekistics, Tokyo as a world city in the making can be observed, revealing a process without a predetermined trajectory embedded in the global exchange of knowledge.

    Eric Häusler is a Research Fellow at the Institute of Comparative Culture, Sophia University. His doctoral research was part of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Sinergia Project “Doing House and Family” at the University of Bern, where he completed his PhD thesis on the Bernese bankruptcy regime 1750-1900 in March 2020. His postdoc research project is titled “World Cities in the Making: Past Urban Futures of Tokyo, New York and Zurich in the 1960s”. Eric’s research interests include global urban history, the concept of temporality, historical sociology and economic history.

    Prag

    Das Collegium Carolinum und das Deutsche Historische Institut Warschau laden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Pracovište studijního programu Genderová studia, Fakulta humanitních studií, Univerzita Karlova zu dem Vortrag von Dr. Christiane Brenner (München) "Scharf überwachter Sex? Prostitution in der sozialistischen Tschechoslowakei." am Mittwoch, 6. April 2022, 17.00 Uhr ein.

    Moderation: Mgr. Kateřina Kolářová, Ph. D. (Univerzita Karlova)

    Als die Kommunisten sich in der Tschechoslowakei 1948 die Alleinherrschaft sicherten, waren sie optimistisch, mit dem Aufbau des Sozialismus auch die Prostitution besiegen zu können. Dieses Ziel sollte in erster Linie dadurch erreicht werden, dass alle Menschen das Recht auf „ordentliche Arbeit“ erhielten. Um einer Welt den Weg zu bereiten, in der keine Frau mehr darauf angewiesen sein würde, ihren Lebensunterhalt mit sexuellen Diensten zu bestreiten, setzten sie aber auch auf massive Repression.

    Trotzdem existierte Prostitution in der Tschechoslowakei während der gesamten sozialistischen Periode. Entsprechend inkonsequent war auch die politische und polizeiliche Praxis gegenüber Prostitution in der sozialistischen Tschechoslowakei. In meinem Vortrag werde ich die Motive hinter diesem widersprüchlichen Kurs diskutieren, der zwischen Repression und Duldung von Prostitution schwankte. Wann gingen Polizei und Staatssicherheit direkt gegen Prostitution vor, wann beließen sie es bei scharfer Überwachung oder blieben völlig untätig? Welche ordnungspolitischen Versprechen wurden im Zusammenhang mit Prostitution gemacht? Schließlich möchte ich diskutieren, welche Strategien, den sozialen Frieden und die herrschende Geschlechterordnung zu wahren, sich in der Politik der sozialistischen Tschechoslowakei gegenüber Prostitution identifizieren lassen.

    Der Vortrag wird live in der Prager Außenstelle des Collegium Carolinum stattfinden (Valentinská 91/1, 3. Stock) sowie via Zoom übertragen.

    Eric Voegelin, The New Science of Politics, 1952 IV, § 1-3.

    Obwohl die Ideengeschichte schon oft für tot erklärt wurde, erlebt sie derzeit in der internationalen Forschung ein Revival: Sie zieht die Aufmerksamkeit jener Philosophinnen und Philosophen auf sich, die an der allzu ahistorischen Praxis ihrer Disziplin Anstoß nehmen und die für ein besseres Verständnis philosophischer Argumente und Fragen einen kontextuelleren Ansatz fordern. Außerdem steht die Ideengeschichte auch wieder im Mittelpunkt der historiografischen Debatte. Nach einer anfänglichen Hochphase, die insbesondere durch die Arbeiten von Reinhart Koselleck und seinen Schülerinnen und Schülern geprägt war, öffnen sich die Historikerinnen und Historiker nun für neue ideengeschichtliche Ansätze und Methoden, wie die der Cambridge School, der globalen Ideengeschichte oder der Digital Humanities. Der Zugang zu einem immer umfangreicheren Korpus und neue Recherchemethoden (z. B. nach Stichworten) machen ein Nachdenken über die Geschichte der Begriffe und Ideen erforderlich.

    Aufgrund dieser Situation haben wir im Jahre 2019 diesen Lesekreis zur Ideen-, Begriffs- und Konstellationsgeschichte ins Leben gerufen. Sein Ziel ist es, die Teilnehmer/innen mit den wichtigsten Texten vertraut zu machen, die sich mit den Zielen und Methoden der Ideengeschichte und der Philosophie in ihren verschiedenen Ausprägungen befassen. Wir möchten einen Raum für die Diskussion dieser Fragen bieten, die im Mittelpunkt der philosophischen und historischen Disziplinen stehen und die deren jeweilige Gegenstände, ihre Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede betreffen.

    Nachdem wir zwei Jahre lang zur Geschichte der Philosophie gearbeitet haben, steht nun ein neues Thema auf dem Programm. Im Jahr 2021/22 soll es um die Philosophie der Geschichte gehen.

    Im ersten Semester findet dieses Seminar online statt und wird in Zusammenarbeit mit Andree Hahmann, Professor für Geschichte der Philosophie an der Tsinghua Universität (Peking), organisiert. Wenn es die Infektionslage zulässt, wird die Veranstaltung in Zusammenarbeit mit der Deutschen Historischen Institut Paris im zweiten Semester erneut in einem Präsenz-/Hybridformat durchgeführt.

    Aufgrund der Zeitverschiebung findet das Seminar am Montagmorgen von 10:00-12:00 Uhr statt. Seminarsprachen sind Französisch, Deutsch, Englisch.

    Bitte setzen Sie sich mit uns in Verbindung, wenn Sie an diesem Seminar oder an einer der Sitzungen teilnehmen möchten. Wir senden Ihnen dann eine Woche vor der Sitzung die Texte, die besprochen werden zu.

    Register online

     

    This talk examines the sexualized labor of love and hospitality through the relationships that American soldiers built with Filipino women during the U.S. occupation of the Philippines. It reframes the story of Isabel Rosario Cooper, the sometime-mistress of General Douglas MacArthur, away from a tragic romance to that of labor, survival, and creativity within the deeply asymmetrical structure of empire to understand how intimacy was integral to its workings.

     

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER


    Vernadette Gonzalez is Professor of American Studies and Director of the Honors Program at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Her first book, Securing Paradise: Tourism and Militarism in Hawai’i and the Philippines (Duke 2013) examines the convergences of cultures of militarism and tourism in U.S. circuits of empire. She is coeditor, with Hōkūlani K. Aikau, of Detours: A Decolonial Guide to Hawai’i (Duke 2019), which curates alternative, place based narratives, art, and itineraries that present a decolonial archive and vision for life in Hawai’i. Her most recent book, Empire’s Mistress, Starring Isabel Rosario Cooper (Duke 2021) is an exploration of the intimacies of imperial geopolitics through the life story of a mixed-race vaudeville and film actress and sometime mistress of General Douglas MacArthur.

     

    ABOUT THE LECTURE SERIES


    Not the Usual Suspects: Everyday Agents of Globalization in the Twentieth Century

    This lecture series reassesses globalization from a bottom-up perspective. Globalization processes have typically been associated with intergovernmental organizations, multinational corporations, and NGOs. Less known are the “everyday” agents of economic, cultural, and political globalization: historical actors who initiated and promoted connection and exchange (intentionally and unintentionally) across world regions through their day-to-day activities. Backpacking tourists in postwar Europe, for instance, redefined the very idea of Europe with their cross-border itineraries and the many interactions with their host communities. The lecture series shines a spotlight on these and other drivers of globalization at the micro-social level. The different lectures discuss the activities of individual and group actors since the 1920s, covering a truly global range of geographies including the Middle East, East Asia, and the Caribbean. By applying an actor-centered approach to the study of twentieth-century globalization, the lecture series highlights the significance of globalization agents not usually suspected of playing this role.

    Between 1933 and 1939, several dozen journalists writing for the Yiddish press in Poland traveled to Nazi Germany to cover political developments and Jewish life in the Third Reich from an investigative, ethnographic and uniquely Eastern European-Jewish point of view. Their personal and professional experience allowed them to document and interpret National Socialism from a dual perspective. As traveling Jewish journalists from Eastern Europe they were “outsiders” from German society and from the German-Jewish experience. However, as Jews travelling through Nazi Germany (and sometimes staying for weeks or months), they were also “insiders” with access to German-Jewish and Eastern-European-Jewish migrant Lebenswelten (living milieus), who also had cause to fear antisemitic violence and terror. Their reportage on Nazi Germany in the 1930s offers us a new perspective while also challenging more established narratives written by Western Jews looking at Jews in the East. It was now Polish Jews describing the plight of their fellow Jews in Germany.

    Anne-Christin Klotz is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Migration at the German Historical Institute Washington | Pacific Office and a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of European Studies at the University of California. She received her PhD in Modern History from the Free University Berlin with a dissertation on the Warsaw Yiddish press and the struggle of its journalists and editors against the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany, which will be published by De Gruyter in 2022.

    Martin van Gelderen (Universität Göttingen), Lesen und Schreiben um zu leben: Eine Kulturgeschichte der Tagebücher von Anne Frank

    Kommentar: Ivan Jablonka (Universität Sorbonne Paris Nord)

    Dieser Tage sorgt jede neue Geschichte über Anne Frank weltweit für Aufsehen. Erst kürzlich hat die neu aufgenommene (und recht zweifelhafte) Suche nach den Verrätern des Verstecks von Anne Frank und ihrer Familie einen regelrechten Skandal ausgelöst. Anne Franks Tagebuch wurde 1947 veröffentlicht. Sie beschreibt darin ihr Leben im Versteck in einem Hinterhaus der Amsterdamer Prinsengracht, in dem sich ihre Familie zwischen Juli 1942 und August 1944 aufhielt. In den 75 Jahren, die seither vergangen sind, sind die Figur der Anne Frank, ihre Schriften und das Anne Frank Haus zu Symbolen geworden. Sie spielen sowohl in der niederländischen, als auch in der deutschen und der amerikanischen, ja der globalen Erinnerungskultur des Holocaust und des Zweiten Weltkriegs eine große Rolle.

    Dieser Vortrag befasst sich mit Anne Frank in ihrer Rolle der Schriftstellerin und Leserin. Es wird betrachtet, wie Anne in ihrer Begegnung mit der Welt der Literatur, insbesondere der innovativen Arbeit niederländischer Schriftstellerinnen, in ihren Tagebüchern ein Leben des Schreibens und Lesens schuf, das ihr half, zu überleben. Beides ermöglichte es ihr, sich mit den fundamentalen Fragen des Lebens als Teenagerin im Versteck zu beschäftigen, nach ihrem inneren Selbst zu suchen, ihr Jüdischsein anzunehmen und ihren eigenen Weg zwischen der deutschen Kultur ihrer Eltern und dem kulturellen Reichtum des Lebens in Amsterdam zu finden.

    Vladimir Putin’s war of aggression against Ukraine has shaken Europe and the world. The unprovoked invasion of a sovereign state is a major breach of international law to which the United States, the European Union, and allied countries reacted by imposing wide-ranging economic sanctions. Are we entering a new phase of international instability in a multipolar world? What does it mean for our historical perspective that European affairs suddenly have become urgent again for the international order? The panel will address the challenges Putin’s war against Ukraine poses for the post-Cold War order and for European security. It will bring together historians with experts of international relations, security studies, and foreign and security policy.

    The event is organized by Dr. Wencke Meteling (Catholic University/Universität Marburg) und is jointly convened by the Working Group on International History (German Historical Association), Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), the Association for Military History (AKM e.V.), and the German Historical Institute Washington (GHI).

    Moderated by Jonas Gross, Digital Euro Association and Markus Heckel, DIJ

    Central banks around the world have stepped in and intensified their efforts to conceptualize and design their own digital currencies, i.e., central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), in particular, as a reaction to the increased competitive dynamics by the cryptocurrencies and stablecoins. Asia has a particular importance and critical leading efforts in this space with various Asian central banks assessing and experimenting with CBDCs. For instance, China has launched pilot programs and trials of its digital currency project e-CNY. Goals of the e-CNY include to provide a convenient, yet more efficient, resilient and secure retail payment system to increase financial inclusion and preserve monetary sovereignty. Further, fair competition and interoperability should be promoted. As another example, the Bank of Japan is in the proof of concept stage regarding their own digital currency. Additionally, the Japan Digital Currency Forum as a consortium of around 70 Japanese firms, including the country’s three largest banks, is also working on a yen-based digital currency, tentatively called „DCJPY“ for Japan’s private sector to complement the central bank’s efforts.

    In this joint webinar of the Digital Euro Association and the German Institute for Japanese Studies, we focus on various efforts in Asia around digital money, stablecoins and CBDCs, and address the following questions among others:

    • What is happening in Asia around digital money, stablecoins and CBDCs?
    • e-CYN project in China: What are the implications for Asia as well as for Europe?
    • DCJPY project and CBDC in Japan: What are the implications for Asia as well as for Europe?
    • What can Europe learn from these projects?
    • How and why do the design principles of various CBDCs differ across Asian countries?
    • Which insights do Asian CBDC projects provide for the design of a digital euro?
    • What are the recent regulatory developments around digital money in Asia?
    • How is the competitive vs complementary landscape shaped in different Asian economies between the CBDCs and private digital money?

    During the webinar, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.

Jahrhundert geben. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt auf den bedeutendsten aktuellen Entdeckungen in Europa.
    Eine neue Aufmerksamkeit für die Stätten jüdischer Präsenz und eine Tendenz zu präventiven archeologischen Eingriffen im Vorfeld von Baumaßnahmen haben im Laufe der Zeit zu vermehrten Ausgrabungen geführt. Der Forschungsbereich hat sich darüber hinaus sowohl in chronologischer Hinsicht – durch die Berücksichtigung der Neuzeit und der Zeitgeschichte – als auch methodisch weiterentwickelt. Ohne Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit werden im Rahmen der Tagung Synthesen und Fallstudien zu Kultstätten (Synagogen, Ritualbäder...), zur Topographie mittelalterlicher Judenhäuser und neuzeitlicher Ghettos, zu Bestattungsräumen, Stätten des Holocaust, neue methodische Ansätze und zur Erschließung der untersuchten Stätten als Kulturgüter besprochen.

    Zoom registration

    The German Historical Institute Washington is excited to present the official launch of its new website Migrant Connections. This online research platform will bring together three projects which combine the institute’s long-standing interest in migration history with its research focus on digital history. One component of the site will be “Mobile Lifeworlds in German-American Letters,” the institute’s long-running project to collect and make accessible in digital form German immigrant correspondence (also known as “German Heritage in Letters”). The site will also feature “Traveling Texts in German-American Newspapers,” a digital humanities project which uses computational and qualitative methodologies to examine the circulation of ideas, literature, and consumer information in the German-American press. Finally, it will provide an online home for “Writing Across Borders,” a citizen-scholarship initiative to make migrants’ narratives documenting their travels accessible for research.

     

    The launch event will include remarks by the deputy director of the German Historical Institute, Axel Jansen, as well as the embassy of Germany in the United States, and the Goethe Institute which helped to sponsor and oversee the “German Heritage in Letters” project through the “Wunderbar Together” initiative. Following a preview of the new website and its component projects moderated by Atiba Pertilla the launch event will include a roundtable with a cross-section of participants illustrating how Migrant Connections draws on both traditional academic research as well as the new possibilities of citizen science. Prof. Dr. Ursula Lehmkuhl of the University of Trier will explain the importance of immigrants’ letters as sources for historical research into “everyday” lives. Carl-Henry Geschwind, whose great-great-grandfather’s letters are part of the project, will discuss the role of family historians as researchers of their immigrant ancestors’ past. Bettina Hess, librarian of the German Society of Pennsylvania, will discuss the collections the library has shared with the project and the library’s online, binational “Transcription Tuesday” citizen science group. One citizen scholar, Regina Kunz, of Homburg, Saarland, will discuss her work with a self-organized group of colleagues to transcribe several dozen letters of the Fischer family of Württemberg. Finally, university student Clara Willmann will discuss how she is combining her transcriptions of a collection of letters sent to an immigrant family in California with local research in northwestern German archives to learn more about the impact of migration on families on both sides of the Atlantic. The event will conclude with a period for questions and answers from the audience, The roundtable and discussion will be moderated by Jana Keck.

    There is a disconnection between, on the one hand, Europe regarding colonial history as ‘the past’ and of little consequence to its contemporary self-understanding and, on the other hand, formerly colonized countries and populations living with the ongoing legacies of that colonial past as a present reality. In this lecture, I argue for a decolonial project for Europe. This is a project that would acknowledge Europe’s past as one largely constituted by its colonial activities. Further, it would seek to rethink the idea of ‘Europe’, and its contemporary relations to the rest of the world, on that basis.

    Gurminder K. Bhambra is Professor of Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies at the University of Sussex. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and President of the British Sociological Association. Her publications include Colonialism and Modern Social Theory (with John Holmwood) and the award-winning Rethinking Modernity: Postcolonialism and the Sociological Imagination.

Born in East Berlin, she began publishing in 1999 and won the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize in 2001 for her short story “Sibirien,” (“Siberia”), later published in the collection Tand (2001; The Old Child and Other Stories). Her 2008 novel Heimsuchung (Visitation) relates the changing fate of a house, from the persecution of Jews during the Third Reich to post-wall Germany. Aller Tage Abend (2012; The End of Days), winner of the Hans Fallada Prize and the Foreign Independent Fiction Prize, follows the female protagonist’s life from a shtetl in today’s Poland to socialist East Berlin. Her novel Gehen, ging, gegangen (Go, Went, Gone), short-listed for the German Book Prize in 2018, revolves around the plight of African refugees in Berlin and puts the GDR experience in conversation with memories of German colonialism, and discourses on migration and borders in Europe. She recently published her novel Kairos (2021). Other works include: Dinge, die verschwinden (2009; ‘Things that Disappear’) and Kein Roman (2018; Not a Novel). Her works have been translated into thirty languages. Erpenbeck has also written and directed stage plays and collaborated on a number of opera productions.
