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 seven research platforms:
Silicon Mountains since 2019
EthnoKino since 2020
Urbane und rurale Räume: ein transphilologischer Dialog since 2020 (only in German, please switch language)
The Latin Flavius Josephus in his Christian an Jewish Perception: Existing from 2016 until 2019, the platform was rewarded a Sinergia grant from the SNSF in 2018. Information about the new project “Lege Iosephum!” Reading Josephus in the Latin Middle Ages can be found at www.legejosephum.ch or www.legejosephum.unibe.ch.
