  • Paul Thompson: Capitalism, Contradictions and Conflict

    29/06/2017 Duración: 01h20min

    Paul Thompson (University of Stirling, United Kingdom) held this talk at the symposium "Workers of the World - Exploring global perspectives on labour from the 1950s to the present" as the keynote speaker of session 2, "Labour at the Site of Production: Labour Process, Control, Quality of Work", chaired by Martin Krzywdzinski (Berlin Social Science Centre, Germany). New empirical approaches of labour studies in different world regions were the center of this symposium in Hanover in June 2017. How can we arrive at global perspectives on labour, which reach beyond teleologies of a all-encompassing "race to the top" (or "to the bottom"), but also beyond the notion of everincreasing differentiation? This symposium explored overarching trends in the political as well as corporate regulation and in the forms of collective organisation of labour. Such an exploration is understood as a precondition for an adequate analysis of the dynamics of current capitalism. It needs to be based on an examination of linkages and s

  • Political Turbulence: How Social Media Turn Political Mobilization Upside Down

    31/05/2017 Duración: 49min

    Helen Margetts, professor at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, UK, held her talk as one of the keynote speakers at the Herrenhausen Conference "Society through the Lens of the Digital" which took place from May 31 till June 2, 2017, in Hanover. At the conference, the experts discussed how the humanities and social sciences deal with the social challenges of digitization. The introductory words are held by Florian Süssenguth, acatech, Germany. The Herrenhausen Conference "Society through the Lens of the Digital" explored the role of the social sciences and the humanities in a society saturated with debates on the effects of digitization: Parties, NGOs and the public sphere explore ideas of digital democracy. Luminaries of business try to map and unlock the potential of big data and of platform capitalism. Data journalists experiment with modes of describing the world not through linear texts but through algorithms and interactive visualizations while intelligent systems have to learn to nav

  • Governance of Religious Diversity - Socio-Legal Dynamics in Europe

    05/10/2016 Duración: 26min

    Matthias Koenig is a sociologist of law, professor at the University of Göttingen and Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. He held his talk at the Herrenhausen Conference "Religious Pluralisation - A Challenge for Modern Societies" on October 4-6, 2016, where the challenges of religious pluralization and the contribution to be made by interreligious dialogue in the areas of societal and scientific discourse were discussed. In his talk, he argues that there are two main problems with our standard answer to the question of how to resolve problems arising from religious diversity. First, we too easily overlook the remnants of confessional statehood that are still present in our state structures. And second, we have to pay more attention to the limitations of secular law and to how it operates. How is religious diversity actually governed?

  • Audio: Entangling Collective Action and Imaginaries of Threat, c. 1916-23

    10/06/2016 Duración: 25min

    Klaus Weinhauer, Universität Bielefeld Globally the years roughly between 1910 and the mid 1920s saw multiple and overlapping upheavals. Labor historians, mostly focusing on nation states, have studied strikes and social movements, while others have discussed the revolutionary, social and consumer protests of this phase. What we still need, however, are globally oriented studies of these important years. My paper employs a micro historical and space sensitive approach focused on the struggle about local order. In the phase of global upheaval, roughly between the 1910s and mid 1920s, not only hopes for revolution but on a massive scale also fears and imaginaries of threat surfaced. These fears (and also the hopes) were mostly about social change and about possible revolutions - the latter often inspired by the Russian Revolutions and later by the German Revolution. Transnational and translocal networks of communication, highly mobile intellectuals, and the network of shipping lines were instrumental in entangl

  • International Dada: Between Aesthetic and Political Revolution

    10/06/2016 Duración: 24min

    David Hopkins, University of Glasgow The Dada movement (1916-1923) is normally seen as linked to specific locations: Zurich, Berlin, Cologne, Hanover, Paris and New York. Whilst common anti-war and anti-art sentiments are understood as uniting these centers, Dada activity in each location is customarily defined in terms of distinguishing characteristics. Zurich Dada is therefore seen as having an aesthetic tendency (in the direction of abstraction) whilst the Berlin group is considered more politically engaged. This paper seeks to challenge the too-easy separation between aesthetics and politics in accounts of Dada that has been encouraged by the above model. At the same time, it aims to challenge the model of static Dada locations and to promote a dynamic notion of Dada as constituted primarily by the principle of dissemination. The paper will look closely at a series of interactions between key Dada figures in far-flung locations. It will aim to show that magazines, letters or telegrams between these indivi

  • Colonial Modernity, National Subjectivity and Subaltern Everydayness

    10/06/2016 Duración: 26min

    Jie-Hyun Lim, Sogang University, Seoul Asianization, Africanization or Latin Americanization of Marxism involves more than a mere transposition of Marxian ideas to non-European countries. When revolution came to East, events contradicted the ideology. The Bolshevik revolution seemed to deny Marx’s famous dictum of ‘the country that is more developed industrially only shows, to the less developed, the image of its own future.’ Based on a divergent mode of capitalist development from the ‘West’, the Russian revolution represented ‘a revolution against Karl Marx’s Capital.’ However, revolution in Russia was not a derivative one wherein the historical authenticity of the Marxian revolution in the developed capitalist countries is tested. Viewed from entangled histories of capitalism, colonialism, nationalism and socialism as competing visions of the global modernity, the Bolshevik revolution was the field of political contests of those competing visions. As the development of the global socialism showed in the tw

  • "Knave Proof": The Macroeconomics of Stabilization in Europe and the U.S., 1919-1926

    10/06/2016 Duración: 32min

    Adam Tooze, Columbia University The violent politics of counter-revolution in the aftermath of World War I are eye-catching. But focusing on them can lead us to underestimate a larger and more broad-based phenomenon of unsettlement and restabilization that operated in the more abstract arena of macroeconomic forces. Between 1919 and the mid-1920s a gigantic cycle of inflation and deflation rocked the world economy. Here too a politics of stabilization was at work. It is one that operated in a classically counter-revolution fashion against the left and organized labor. But it also served to contain the more violent forces of the nationalist right-wing. It is precisely in this sphere that a liberal politics of stabilization was at its most powerful and effective. Adam Tooze is Professor of History at Columbia University. Previously, he was Professor at Yale University (2009 - 2015) and Director of International Security Studies at the University of Cambridge (1996 - 2009). He is an Invited Commission Member of

  • After Empire, Before Nation: Competing Visions of Order in the Ottoman Empire After 1917

    10/06/2016 Duración: 27min

    Abdulhamit Kirmizi, Istanbul Şehir University The examination of the connections between the Russian Revolution and the “Anatolian Revolution” (as the Turkish war of independence is sometimes called) is exciting, yet understudied. My paper will deal with the intriguing question of how (post-) Ottoman actors responded to and navigated within a new world changed by the Bolshevik Revolution after 1917. A chaotic new world needed to be ordered with innovative configurations of current ideological trends in a time when many loyalties persisted together. Sources speak of an alliance between Turkish nationalism and Bolshevism after the revolution. The immediate impressions on the revolution must have prevalent effects on Turkish leaders’ future visions of order. After the war, Mustafa Kemal tried to get the support of Bolshevism from the very first moment he started organizing the “anti-imperialist” national movement and considered implementing its principles for the liberation of the country without endangering Isl

  • 1917-1920 and the Global Revolution of Rising Expectations

    09/06/2016 Duración: 01h01min

    Jörn Leonhard, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg When the American President Woodrow Wilson developed his vision of a new world order in 1917, his focus on the right of national self-determination, particularly that of small nations, played an almost fundamental role. Against the background of the First World War and the hitherto unknown number of victims contemporaries sought to answer the question what the causes of this catastrophe had been. Wilson’s answer pointed to the suppression of nationalities: “This war had its roots in the disregard of rights of small nations and of nationalities which lacked the union and the force to make good their claim to determine their own allegiances and their own forms of political life.” Both the war and the Wilsonian moment provoked globally rising expectations of what a peace settlement after a totalized war would have to achieve. The hitherto unknown number of war victims which had to be legitimized through the results of the peace, ever radicalizing war aims, the i

  • Ethnological Museums: "The First Steps of the New"

    23/06/2015 Duración: 13min

    Ethnological museums in the 21st century have to embrace their influence on society not only thanks to a thoroughly knowledge of their collection but also by amplifying the civic discourse, accelerating the cultural and social change and contributing to contextual intelligence”. In his talk at the Herrenhausen Symposium "Positioning Ethnological Museums in the 21st Century", Mauricio Estrada Muñoz  describes the new plans for the Musée d’Ethnographie de Genève and how the museum is coping with history and provenance issues. He focuses on the permanent exhibition “The Archives of Human Diversity” and how these are displayed in regard to different perspectives. Furthermore, he lines out different approaches on audience development and networking with different groups, for example diasporas installed in the vicinity of Geneva in order to promote their living traditions and intangible heritage. Mauricio Estrada Muñoz is Head of Publics at the Museum of Ethnography, City of Geneva, and is in charge to develop alon

  • Ethnological Museums: "From Curiosa to World Culture: And What Comes Next?"

    22/06/2015 Duración: 12min

    In her talk “From Curiosa to World Culture: what comes next” at the Herrenhausen Symposium "Positioning Ethnological Museums in the 21st Century", Adriana Muñoz describes how the Swedish Värlskulturmuseet in Göteborg defines its new role in the Swedish society. She points out that “museums with wholly or partially ethnographical direction must, even more than now, have an important mission in promoting contacts between Swedish and non-Swedish cultures”. Muñoz looks as a curator at the history of the collection from a post-colonial perspective. Adriana Muñoz is curator for the Collections at the National Museums of World Culture. She studied history in Argentina and archaeology in Sweden. Since 1998 she has been working as curator and in charge of a number of exhibitions at the Etnografiska Museet i Gothenburg as well as at the Museum of World Culture. She has been exploring how categories have been constructed in Ethnographic museums in relationship to the Colonial period. She has been working with possibilit

  • Ethnological Museums: "Restitution of Ethnological Objects: Legal Obligation or Moral Dilemma"

    22/06/2015 Duración: 23min

    Sophie Lenski talks at the Herrenhausen Symposium "Positioning Ethnological Museums in the 21st Century" about the legal aspects of the return of ethnological objects. She points out that the legal standards of the time when the objects were brought to Europe would have to be applied even today. But that leads to the dilemma that these legal standards do not fit the moral standards we would apply nowadays. At present, a problem for the legal return of objects lies in the traditional legal framework of the public international law and / or private law do not include clear procedures on how to replace objects to indigenous groups. Lenski presents different approaches like treaties and conventions trying to solve these problems. Sophie Lenski studied law in Berlin (Humboldt University), Rome and Paris and has been a researcher at the Humboldt University Berlin from 2005 to 2006. After her PhD in law at the Humboldt University Berlin, she did her legal traineeship in Berlin (at the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foun

  • Ethnological Museums: "Some Notes on Repatriation, Restitution, Provenance Research and the Historiography of Collecting"

    22/06/2015 Duración: 22min

    Larissa Förster held her talk at the Herrenhausen Symposium "Positioning Ethnological Museums in the 21st Century". She shares her ideas that base on four years on observing restitution processes with various continents. She therefore captures the present debate on the return of human remains and the restitution of objects in Germany. In the second part, Förster reflects on examples of repatriation from the past. Finally, she connects her analysis to present debates on restitution and the history of museum collections. Larissa Förster is a research associate at the Center for Advanced Studies Morphomata at the University of Cologne and spokesperson of the Working Group on Museums of the German Anthropological Association. Her PhD is on the memory of colonialism in Namibia and she co-curated the exhibition "Namibia – Germany: a shared/divided history. Resistance, violence, memory" (Cologne and Berlin, 2004/05). In her current research she links issues of postcolonial memorialisation practices in Africa to a cr

  • Ethnological Museums: "The Museum as Maloca? A Cooperation Project with Indigenous Partners"

    22/06/2015 Duración: 15min

    Michael Kraus talks at the Herrenhausen Symposium "Positioning Ethnological Museums in the 21st Century". He presents a project between indigenous and scientific partners: in 2014, several anthropologists from Germany have invited four guests from Mitú to the ethnological museum in Berlin. The meeting consisted of two parts: a closed workshop and a public conference. The objects from the museums collections were taken in a time, when the relation between the indigenous society and the colonialist was not peaceful. In his talk, Kraus describes the meeting’s impact on both sides and how the indigenous guests structured it according to their cultural traditions. Michael Kraus is lecturer at the Department for the Anthropology of the Americas at the University of Bonn. He studied ethnology, comparative religious studies and sociology at the universities of Tübingen, Guadalajara and Marburg. In 2004, he received his PhD in ethnology for his work “Bildungsbürger im Urwald. Die deutsche ethnologische Amazonienforsch
