Workshop "Life with measurement: futures in the present"


Starts on

10:00 — 18:00

BBAW (Einstein-Saal), Jägerstraße 22/23, 10117 Berlin

Event access: Public

In an interdisciplinary workshop, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, together with Die Junge Akademie, puts the practices of surveying as part of everyday life up for discussion. The event aims to challenge the title of the BBAW's current annual theme 2021|22, "Die Vermessung des Lebendigen", in that the workshop does not juxtapose the practices of surveying with the living, but puts them up for discussion as part of everyday life.

The following members of Die Jungen Akademie will take part in the event: Lara Keuck (Medizinhistorikerin | Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte) und Stefanie Büchner (Soziologin | Leibniz Universität Hannover).

    • 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.
