Humanities in Dialogue

The Max Weber Foundation is committed to strengthening its contribution to the dialogue between science and society, in the framework of Geisteswissenschaft im Dialog (GiD) (Humanities in Dialogue). The goal of this cooperation is to present the German public with current research questions and results from the Max Weber Foundation’s institutes abroad.

Launched in 1993 by the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities, the series “Humanities in Dialogue” focuses on current issues in science, culture and society. Since 2010, after the Leibniz Association retired as a project partner, the Akademienunion has organized the series jointly with the Max Weber Foundation. Since the 1st of January 2016, the series has been primarily coordinated by the Max Weber Foundation. Two events a year are organized jointly with the Akademienunion.
