Join the HWK team in looking forward to an exciting anniversary program on the occasion of the college's twenty-fifth anniversary.
The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg will be 25 years old in 2022. More precisely, October 13, 2022 marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the signing of the Wissenschaftskolleg's foundation charter. The Kolleg team, cooperation partners, friends, and guests will celebrate the birthday together this year at a series of anniversary events to which we cordially invite you:
Under the title "Science and Society: The History of a Complicated Relationship," the Wissenschaftskolleg invites you to three anniversary lectures in September 2022. Two of them will take place in the center of the city, in Delmenhorst's Markthalle.
The three lectures are dedicated to the basic questions of science in and with society: Why do we want to "know" at all? Why do we as a society need the sciences? Is there a natural tension between societal and scientific interests and what does it consist of? Where do politics and scientific research touch, and why is this encounter seemingly so often marked by misunderstanding?
- Monday, September 12, 2022: "Wissenschaftsfreit, oder: die Kunst vernünftig zu streiten" with Prof. Dr. Sibylla Lotter, Ruhr-University Bochum, at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg
- Monday, September 19, 2022: "Not without us! Chances and limits of social engagement in the sciences" with Prof. Dr. Mark Schweda, University of Oldenburg, at the Delmenhorst Market Hall
- Monday, September 26, 2022: "Science and its limits: Where do the boundaries of scientific knowledge run and how do we deal with them as a society?" (tentative title) with Prof. Dr. Armin Nassehi, University of Munich, at the Delmenhorst Market Hall.
The lectures are open to the public and start at 7:30 pm.
