The workshop "Geisteswissenschaften in den 2020ern / Humanities in the 2020s" focuses on the development of the humanities in Germany and, in particular, at the University of Freiburg, within the next decade. It is inspired by an international conference on that topic organized by Volkswagen-Stiftung last year (find the report on the symposium here), and is the result of explorative conversations at FRIAS, not least due to the profile field "Cultures of the Present and Past" that was recently established at the U Freiburg.

For one and a half days, we would like to discuss, what topics will be of relevance to the humanities in the future, what humanities can contribute to social debates, how they gain more visibility, and what specific measures to implement these findings in research, teaching and graduate education could look like.

The workshop's results shall be taken up in the course of the year, among others in follow-up events by the profile field "Cultures of the Present and Past".

Intended as a workshop meeting, the main language will be German.
