Die Junge Akademie is a guest at the SILBERSALZ Festival


Starts on

15:00 — 16:30

Dom zu Halle

Event access: Public

Researchers from Die Junge Akademie are taking part in this year's SILBERSALZ science and media festival in Halle (Saale). The festival takes place from 15 - 19 September and, under the motto "Inequality", seeks answers to the question of how equity can be achieved.

In the event "Pull up a Chair # 1 - Ask your questions to researchers from Die Junge Akademie", visitors can talk to Viola Priesemann (physicist) and Timo de Wolff (mathematician). How do you research the spread and containment of a virus or the flow of information in neural networks? And what questions are currently being researched in the field of algebraic mathematics? These and other questions can be discussed with our members. As opposed to classical lectures, there will be enough space and time for individual discussions.

Participation is free of charge. Registrations are possible here.

    • Interdisciplinary workshop "language use in science and humanities"

      In this workshop we want to try a little experiment “on our own” and compare scientific texts from different subjects to see how they use language to present scientific results. We are not concerned with an exact linguistic description of individual phenomena, but rather with our spontaneous impressions: How do texts from other disciplines affect us, which stylistic features surprise or irritate us, what seems familiar to us? What linguistic means do the articles use to present their problem/question? What is considered as 'fact' in each case? How is the argumentation made?

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.
