Professor Stefanie von Schnurbein, Nordeuropa-Institut, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin gästar institutionen och kommer tillsammans med Otto Fischer att leda ett seminarium/en workshop om alternativ metodik inom humanistisk forskning och undervisning inom ramarna för arbetet med arbetsgruppen Exploring Humanities/Arbeitskreis Experiment Geisteswissenschaft (AEG).
What do the humanities do, and what should they do? What are the conditions for good academic practice in our sense? How do we really want to work beyond the all too often quoted Sachzwang (practical constraints, political determining factors or inherent necessities)? How can we create spaces that nurture the joy, passion and curiosity which we deem necessary for good academic work? How do we encourage ourselves and each other to truly experiment in our research?
AEG explores these questions around academic work in the humanities in a praxeological fashion. We focus on traditional and alternative practices which we reflect, appropriate, build upon, invent in the action itself. AEG works in the spaces between research, teaching, and administration and transverses status groups. Undergraduate and graduate students, assistant, associate and full professors, visiting scholars, post docs, artists, coaches and others outside the university collaborate in our working group.
AEG is based at the Department for Northern European Studies at Humboldt-Universtität zu Berlin, has members at several Scandinavian universities and is currently extending its network. Membership in AEG is informal and continually changing. Amongst the founders and current members are: Stefanie v. Schnurbein, Janke Klok, Clemens Räthel, Otto Fischer (Uppsala University), Lill-Ann Körber (Oslo University), Bodil Marie Stavning-Thomsen (Aarhus University).
