Daniele Cantini - Youth and Education in the Middle East

Daniele  Cantini combines an analysis of young people in Jordan [...] with one which looks at education and the pursuit of knowledge. He thereby highlights the unprecedented rise in youth population and the growth in institutions of higher learning as a way to explore and explain the  challenges Arab-majority societies are currently facing.

Ralph Buchenhorst (Hg.) - Von Fremdheit lernen

Die Beiträge des Bandes untersuchen die Prozesshaftigkeit und Relationalität von Fremdheit, die von ihr ausgehende Destruktivität –  und besonders auch ihre konstruktiven  Impulse. Sie erkunden  Gestaltungs- und Reflexionsmöglichkeiten im Blick  auf die Verarbeitung von Fremdheitserfahrung für Wissenschaften,  Rechtssysteme und  öffentliche Diskurse.

Origin

The research cluster (RC) and graduate school “Society and Culture in Motion” (SCM) emerged out of the graduate center „Asia and Africa in Global Reference Systems“ in 2008. Since that time the research cluster has evolved from the initially represented regional studies into the systematic disciplines within the humanities and social sciences as well as their global networking. SCM is now the research focal point of three university faculties. Here, the social sciences, humanities, law, as well as economy and regional studies come together in a fruitful exchange and jointly develop inter- and trans-disciplinary applications for research projects. Formative for the RC is the fact that it is a joint endeavor with the MPI for ethnological research.

Objectives

At the center of the research is the analysis of movement – and thus also the persistence – of people, ideas, artifacts and models in both international contemporary and historical contexts. Movement as the diffusion of elements of epistemic, ontological, normative, and material orders are investigated with respect to their meaning for changing social figurations. People translate circulating elements in their own contexts, experiment with them, and in some cases even contribute to the creation or emergence of new institutions.

All our research goes by the guidelines of the DFG: http://www.dfg.de/download/pdf/dfg_im_profil/reden_stellungnahmen/download/empfehlung_wiss_praxis_0198.pdf   

Tasks

The research cluster and the graduate school serve to cultivate excellent young researchers. It is oriented toward the increasing demand both for regional specific expertise and the development of interculturally linked perspectives. The individual perspectives of the participating subjects have come together to form shared interdisciplinary research interests. Methodologically philological, cultural-historic, philosophical, and historical subjects work hand in hand with disciplines, which work in a social scientific empirical manner. The respective research projects are integrated into the field of tension encompassing regionally oriented competencies and worldwide interconnected idea complexes. As such, both the research cluster and graduate school take into consideration the growing internationalization of scientific discourses and intend to actively contribution to this process of internationalization.
