social science guest lecture in the winter semester 2019/2020



lecture by: Prof. Dr. Matthias Groß

topic: Give me an experiment and I'll find a lab

more information: If you look at today's discussions about real labs or urban and living labs in the context of the energy transition or geoengineering, one might get the impression that experimentation first takes place outside the ancestral areas of science in the wider society and the laboratory falls behind. But how could this be framed sociologically?

social science guest lecture in the winter semester 2019/2020





lecture by: Prof. Dr. Bernt Schnettler

topic: Visual Ethnography of an Intermediate World. In the FARC's transitional camps in Colombia

more information: The peace process in Colombia, which led to the demobilisation of the FARC in 2016, is still under way. Hopes for a swift end to the decades-long conflict face complex problems. These include issues of transitional justice and the difficult integration of demobilized fighters into Colombian society, which continues to be marked by enormous social inequality.
