Memories between Life Stories and History

Veröffentlicht am 4. April 2024

 Memories between Life Stories and History

How is it actually possible to tell one's own life story against the backdrop of a complex historical context? The Interdisciplinary Dialogue on "Memories between Life Stories and History", which the BGHS is hosting on Monday, 15 April 2024 at 6 p.m. in room X-B2-103, is dedicated to this question. The filmmaker Danielle Schwartz from Tel Aviv addressed this question in her award-winning short film "Mirror Image", in which she has a conversation with her grandparents about their biography. Using a wall mirror, which occupies a prominent place in the grandparents' house, different perspectives on historical circumstances are negotiated.

Danielle Schwartz will introduce the film at the Interdisciplinary Dialogue and discuss the question of the relationship between life stories and history with sociologist Ruth Ayaß and historian Bettina Brandt. The dialogue will be moderated by Sabine Schäfer from the BGHS. Following the dialogue, the BGHS cordially invites you to a reception in the BGHS Lounge.

Workshop “Resistant Subjectivation”

Veröffentlicht am 20. February 2024

Workshop "Resistant Subjectivation"

On 9-10 February, BGHS member Ragna Verhoeven organized the international workshop "Resistant Subjectivation", which was funded by the BGHS and to which she had invited researchers from Germany and Austria. Together, they explored the extent to which resistance plays a decisive role in the process of subjectivation. Six speakers gave input presentations and thus stimulated the joint discussion.

Michaela Bstieler presents her research project, in which she is investigating figures of the uninhabitable: Worldlessness (Hannah Arendt), Abandonment (Emmanuel Lévinas), Disorientation (Frantz Fanon) and “Being Stopped” (Sara Ahmed). Using the methodological tools of political phenomenology, she approaches these various figures of the uninhabitable. She assumes that people are always residing; even in the camp, because there are everyday routines, or stories are told under the cover of night. As a result, there are "small revolutions" of resistance even in the supposedly most uninhabitable places.

Anna Weithaler is interested in democracy education from a radical democratic perspective and wonders to what extent this requires resistant, democratic subjects. Radical democracy theorists repeatedly use the formula of the political "from below", but it remains unclear what this "from below" means. She therefore suggests taking a closer look at representation. In other words, to what extent resistant subjects can be represented in the radical democratic sense, or represent themselves.

Ragna Verhoeven deals with the tension between conflictual and unifying elements in democracies. With the concept of the unifying, she develops a specific radical democratic concept that distinguishes itself from other democratic theoretical concepts of consensus or community. It particularly invites resistance, ruptures and critical questioning and thus enables productive reflection on resistance.

In her contribution, Henrike Bloemen emphasizes the permanence of resistance. She operates with Gramsci's concept of everyday mind, which she understands as a gendered mode of subjectivation. According to her, elements of resistance are hidden in the routines of everyday life and thus experience permanence. She looks at the "small resistances" that are consciously and unconsciously part of our everyday lives.

At the center of Viktoria Hügel's paper is the concept of "Body Politic". She directs her attention to the presence of bodies in (democratic) space. In this context, she looks at artistic and activist performances, such as "Eviction" by Omer Krieger. She discusses how body practices in artistic performances can be resistant.

Mareike Gebhardt brings together Black feminisms, radical democratic perspectives and migration research. She points out that the concept of the fugitive focuses on more extensive phenomena than the concept of migration, for example the escape from slavery. By telling stories of successful escapes, slaves undertake small, resistant escapes from their lives.

In exciting discussions, it became clear that the participants, although they research very different topics, share an interest in and understanding of resistance. In this shared understanding, resistance is constant and at the same time indicates a capacity for change and mutability. It includes relational as well as conflictual aspects. This means that the connections it creates do not have a homogenizing effect, but rather invite heterogeneity, differences and diversity. Resistance is a central component in the process of subjectivation, even if this happens in a hidden, supposedly invisible space in the sense of "small resistances".

This was the second workshop in which the researchers discussed the concept of subjectivation. And the work is to be continued.

Workshop “resistant subjectivation”

Veröffentlicht am 30. January 2024

Workshop "Resistant Subjectivation"

On 9 February 2024, the international workshop "Resistant Subjectivation" will take place, organized by BGHS member Ragna Verhoeven. The BGHS-funded workshop will bring together researchers from various disciplines (sociology, philosophy, political science, political theory) from Germany and Austria. Together, they will explore the question of the extent to which different elements of resistance come into play in the process of subjectivation. Can resistance be seen as an integral part of modes of subjectivation? Who is resistant there? Is it groups, collectives or individuals? Who or what is being resisted against? The contributions will deal with these questions from different perspectives (including feminist and queer theories, postcolonial and decolonial critiques, black theory, critical phenomenology and radical democratic theories) and also make practical references, for example with regard to civil sea rescue or civil rights movements.

The focus will be on exchanging ideas on the topic and searching for interfaces to continue working on together. The workshop is a follow up of a workshop that took place on 26 June 2023 under the title "Precarious Subjectivation“ at the University of Innsbruck. You can find a report on this first workshop here.

The event will be held in German. Interested parties are welcome. Please register at ragna.verhoeven@uni-bielefeld.de

BGHS celebrates its 15th anniversary

BGHS celebrates its 15th anniversary

On 21 November, the BGHS celebrated its 15th anniversary together with over 60 members and friends. Angelika Epple, the new rector of Bielefeld University, who has been involved in the BGHS for many years as a doctoral supervisor, was invited. She answered questions from the two BGHS directors Klaus Weinhauer and Ruth Ayaß about the future of graduate funding at Bielefeld University. Oliver Flügel-Martinsen, Marie Kaiser, Lisa Regazzoni and Tobias Werron then discussed the hot topic of how scientific understanding can actually be understood.

Angelika Epple took the opportunity to explain her concept of talent development at Bielefeld University, with which she started her term of office. She emphasised that everyone has talents, but that not all talents are developed, and certainly not at the same time. This means that talent development is an ongoing task: for the institution and for people in all status groups, not just for students or researchers in the qualification phase. The decision to write a doctoral thesis is an important step that is followed by other steps. Bielefeld University wants to provide support in reflecting on these steps and is therefore currently developing a concept for a graduate academy.

Ruth Ayaß welcomed this turn away from the paternalistic concept of the promotion of young researchers towards process-orientated talent development and asked what role interdisciplinarity could play in this. Angelika Epple recalled the times when history and sociology had a close relationship, but that they had grown apart over time and were now moving closer together again. However, she also emphasised that Bielefeld University has a tradition of what is known as major interdisciplinarity, which aims to promote exchange between the humanities and social sciences with the natural and technical sciences. When asked by Ruth Ayaß what role intermediary structures such as the BGHS could play in this, the Rector again referred to the planned Graduate Academy, in which various endeavours are to be bundled. In this context, Klaus Weinhauer emphasised how important it is for interdisciplinary exchange to have a clear profile of one's own discipline, whereupon Angelika Epple brought the expertise developed at the BGHS into play. The concept of the BGHS, in which both specialist programmes and transferable skills have a place, is convincing.

Klaus Weinhauer then brought the discussion to the topic of internationalisation. Angelika Epple noted that the BGHS is also good at this, as the current Blended Intensive Programme shows. Internationalisation cannot be developed top-down. However, it is possible to create opportunities for this, such as the European universities of the NEOLAiA network or the strategic partnerships with various international universities. Internationalisation thrives on the personal contacts that researchers maintain with one another. The institution must position itself in such a way that it can react to changes at an early stage. The establishment of a graduate academy should help Bielefeld University to attract good researchers from all over the world. That is site development.

Finally, Angelika Epple made an appeal to doctoral researchers and postdocs. She emphasised how important it is to get involved in the university during these phases and to help shape it, e.g. in academic self-administration. She knows from her own experience that you are busy with other things during this time: she herself had two children during this time. But today she realises how important the own commitment is.

In the second part of the anniversary event, four professors from different disciplines at Bielefeld University met for the Interdisciplinary Dialogue on the topic of scientific understanding. Oliver Flügel-Martinsen (Political Theory and History of Ideas), Marie Kaiser (Philosophy of Science), Lisa Regazzoni (Theory of History) and Tobias Werron (Sociological Theory and General Sociology), moderated by Sabine Schäfer (executive manager of the BGHS), engaged in a lively dialogue on their different perspectives on scientific understanding.

Understanding is anything but self-evident, as the very different answers to the question about the respective disciplinary and personal perspectives on scientific understanding showed.

For Marie Kaiser, understanding a phenomenon scientifically means grasping it in its context. This requires explanations, specific knowledge or certain skills. If different perspectives are brought together, e.g. in interdisciplinary collaboration, then a more comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon can be achieved. However, it is necessary to find common ground, i.e. to find out which connections can be established between the different or differently processed phenomena.

Tobias Werron described what he sees as an essential characteristic of scientific understanding as a certain detachment from one's own experience. By using scientific theories or methods to distance themselves from their own experiences, for example, social scientists are able to turn everyday things that seem completely natural and self-evident to us into interesting research topics. Their own localisation in a particular discipline or research tradition is particularly evident in the fundamental questions that interest the researcher, in the case of the social sciences, for example, the question of how social order is possible.

For Lisa Regazzoni, one question also plays an important role in scientific understanding, namely the question: What do we want to know? And there are big differences between subjects. While the natural sciences are concerned with finding explanations, the humanities and social sciences try to create meaning. But here too, the focus has shifted over time from the question of why things happened to the question of how things happened, i.e. the contextualisation of events or processes in their conditions.

Oliver Flügel-Martinsen placed the process of scientific understanding in the context of hegemonic discursive formations. From this perspective, 'objectivity' and 'truth' are the results of political struggles, which does not necessarily mean that those who are now in power will always win. After all, conditions are constantly changing, albeit sometimes very slowly, and the meanings of what is being fought over are also changing. This applies to science just as it does to other areas of society, such as politics. Scientific 'truths' are also the result of specific hegemonic discourse formations.

The diversity of the concepts of scientific understanding made the discussion extremely exciting and varied. It became clear just how much of a prerequisite understanding is and what problems have to be overcome in the process. Ultimately, there always needs to be some kind of translation between different concepts, which in turn is associated with gains and losses at the level of meaning: a translation never contains the exact level of meaning of the original concept or idea, it loses part of it. But it also enables its own form of understanding and thus the production of new knowledge.

It was the BGHS's 6th Interdisciplinary Dialogue, and the format once again proved to be an excellent tool for open and respectful scientific debate. In any case, everyone still felt like celebrating the 15th BGHS birthday afterwards and stayed until the last canapé had been eaten and the last glass of wine drunk.

Recap of the workshop and exchange: „Sexualized harassment, discrimination and violence at the study and work place”

Veröffentlicht am 23. November 2023

 Recap of the workshop and exchange: "Sexualized harassment, discrimination and violence at the study and work place"

On 14.11.2023, the workshop and exchange "Sexualized harassment, discrimination and violence at the study and workplace" was organized by the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Faculty of Sociology with support by the BGHS Representatives. The Equal Opportunities Commission had already organized a similar workshop as a Jour Fixe on the 18th of October. In the workshop, Lena Wittenfeld and Ragna Verhoeven provided information on the topic of sexualized harassment, discrimination and violence in the university context, in particular on the legal framework and the contact points at the faculty and the university, and the participants had the opportunity to share their experiences.

The organizers and participants agreed that there is an urgent need to integrate the topic more into everyday faculty life, to talk to each other and, in particular, to inform vulnerable groups (e.g. Internationals) about contact points and (legal) framework conditions. The Equal Opportunities Commission of the Faculty of Sociology will take up the suggestions from the workshop and discuss them further with various (status) groups in the faculty.  

Finally, we would also like to point out the counselling service offered by the Equal Opportunities Commission which takes place every Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on site (X-B3-250) or by telephone (+495211064571). The counselling service can be used anonymously or non-anonymously and is open to all status groups of the faculty.

The presentation of the workshop can be found here.

Understanding in international perspective

Understanding in international perspective

Europe is big and the world is wide. No reason not to meet up. At the end of September, the BGHS hosted a good part of the world for a week during the face-to-face part of the Blended Intensive Programme "Understanding - The Researchers' Perspectives and Knowledge Production". Understanding requires proximity, which is why 20 doctoral researchers and ten supervisors from the universities of Bologna (Italy), Helsinki (Finland), Jaén (Spain), Örebro (Sweden), Paris (France), Tel Aviv (Israel) and, last but not least, Bielefeld travelled thousands of kilometres to come together and discuss their different academic perspectives.

The programme included a two-day research retreat at which the doctoral researchers presented their research projects and discussed them with the other participants, a one-day workshop on the topic of "Good Scientific Practice" and a visit to the Historisches Museum Bielefeld followed by a reflection session.

The research retreat format in particular was once again received with great enthusiasm. The doctoral researchers had prepared short texts about their research work in advance, which were read by all participants. An excellent basis for the discussions of the projects, which took place in two interdisciplinary groups.

There was no standard format for the texts to be submitted; all participants had to find the best solution for the presentation of their projects themselves. The people from Bielefeld are familiar with this. However, some of the guests found this strange at first and would have liked more guidance. In the end, however, everyone agreed that it was precisely this openness that facilitated and encouraged reflection on the different perspectives. The small scale of the format and the constructive exchange created a safe and friendly atmosphere for the discussions. One guest commented: "It was most helpful as it provided the opportunity to receive new questions ..." And as we know, it is sometimes more important to ask the right questions than to have an answer for everything.

The doctoral representatives of the BGHS in particular provided a lively evening programme: a city tour to Sparrenburg Castle, dinner in the Brauhaus, a pub crawl and, last but not least, karaoke in the Irish Pub - there were plenty of opportunities to get to know each other and make new contacts. And so, at the end of the week, everyone was highly satisfied.

The Blended Intensive Programme, which is funded by Erasmus+, is not over yet. From October to December, there were and still are various online formats, such as a methods class, a theory class and a workshop on scholarly argumentation. And thus further opportunities to find out more about that which seems so natural and yet is anything but self-evident: scientific understanding.

There will also be more on scientific understanding at the Interdisciplinary Dialogue as part of the event celebrating the 15th anniversary of the BGHS on 21 November 2023.

Workshop "Differentiations of affiliations"

Workshop "Differentiations of affiliations"

On 19 and 20 October 2023, the workshop "Reflecting on differentiations of affiliations in the research process" took place with numerous researchers from Germany and Switzerland. The two days offered opportunities for exchange and reflection on all phases of research - from explicating presuppositions before entering the research field, to reflecting on categories within the anonymisation of research data, to the question of the extent to which categorisations are adopted by the field or produced by researchers themselves. In the discussions on these multifaceted aspects, one thing above all became clear: the exchange between researchers on this topic is necessary and meaningful. Questions about differentiations of affiliations are relevant in every phase of research and must be reflected on by researchers in multiple ways: the researcher's assumptions, the assumptions and perspectives of the field as well as preliminary conceptual considerations.

The workshop was rich in inspiring discussions, diverse new questions and enriching contributions - and the question of "where do we go from here?" is still being discussed. The willingness for further collaboration is high and can certainly be attributed to the productive working atmosphere of the workshop.

The BGHS turns 15!

Veröffentlicht am 2. November 2023

The BGHS turns 15!

This year, the BGHS celebrates its 15th anniversary. Since 2008, it has organised and coordinated the joint doctoral programme of the Department of History and the Faculty of Sociology, and thus facilitates a variety of opportunities for academic and personal acquaintance and exchange. Interdisciplinarity, internationality and the promotion of individual initiative are the three basic principles on which the work of the BGHS is based. On this basis, the BGHS has become a 'learning community', a community that invites learning and is itself constantly learning.

On Tuesday, 21 November 2023, the BGHS celebrates the anniversary in the BGHS seminar room (X-B2-103). The event starts at 6 pm with a talk between the new rector, Angelika Epple, and the two BGHS directors, Klaus Weinhauer and Ruth Ayaß, about graduate training at Bielefeld University.

At 6.30 p.m. there will be an Interdisciplinary Dialogue in which four professors from different disciplines at Bielefeld University will discuss how to achieve what seems to be self-evident: scientific understanding. Oliver Flügel-Martinsen (political theory), Marie Kaiser (philosophy of science), Lisa Regazzoni (theory of history) and Tobias Werron (sociological theory) will be on the podium. Sabine Schäfer, executive manager of the BGHS, will moderate. And of course, the audience will also join in the discussion.

The event will end with a reception in the BGHS lounge from around 8 p.m.

Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) on Understanding 

From 25-29 September, the first part of the Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) on "Understanding - The Researchers' Perspectives and Knowledge Production" will take place, for which the BGHS expects 20 doctoral researchers and faculty members from the universities of Bologna, Helsinki, Jaén, Örebro, Paris Cité and Tel Aviv. Doctoral researchers and staff from Bielefeld will also participate. The BIP will be about exchanging information about the participants' research projects and reflecting on the different perspectives on research objects. In a two-day research retreat, the doctoral researchers will present their research projects and discuss them with their peers and the lecturers. In a one-day workshop on "Good Scientific Practice", they have the opportunity to develop a better understanding of good scientific practice in order to avoid accidental misconduct as well as to recognise misconduct in others and deal with it appropriately. Moreover, there will be a joint visit to the Historical Museum in Bielefeld, which will be reflected on. The updated BIP programme can be found here.
