In our second Masterclass, moderated by Rebellious Teaching founder Nausikaä El-Mecky, Dr. Reyhan Şahin aka Lady Bitch Ray (PhD Linguistic) und Madita Oeming (Porn Studies Paderborn) will discuss the advantages and challenges of refusing to put on a typical academic ‘Mask’: We will discuss the freedom but also the friction this can cause – ways of dealing with criticism and prejudice – and how to remain resilient and open at the same time.

    • 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.

    • 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?
