Colloquium „Doing Asymmetry“


Bettina M. Bock and Thorsten Merl are organising the colloquium "Doing Asymmetry: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Verbal Behaviour and Pedagogical Practice".

On four dates, researchers will talk about the concept of asymmetry from linguistic, educational and sociological perspectives. What theoretical foundations and what implicit semantics exist in the disciplines, and in what way are they compatible with each other?

The colloquium is open to the public and will take place in the form of digital evening events via zoom. Registration is requested.


Please note that the colloquium will be held in German.
