Research Forum

With the Research Forum, the WBKolleg provides open platforms for the scientific exchange between researchers at the faculty working on related topics. It is to be understood as a “Market Place of Ideas” with a laboratory atmosphere, a low level of institutionalization, and great voluntary commitment. Its aim is the development of innovative fields and the facilitation of “bottom-up” research.

Currently, there are five research platforms:

Prof. Rippl – Prof. Schäuble – Prof. Thurner – Prof. Vauthier: "Auto-Bio-Graphy – Historiographic Perspectives on Ego Documents/Personal Testimonies in Literature and the Visual and Performative Arts" since 2017

PD Dr. Schulz: "Migration: Pooling expertise – providing impetus – setting basics" since 2016

Prof. Göttler – Prof. Rippl – Prof. Schneemann – Prof. Stolz: "Original – Copy: Techniques and Aesthetics of Reproduction" since 2016

Prof. Bloch – Prof. Heyden – Prof. Huber-Rebenich: "The Latin Flavius Josephus in his Christian an Jewish Perception" since 2016
