This year, Faculty 10 presents itself under the theme “Contradiction Studies in Linguistics and Literary Studies” and, in its pagoda, shows various projects on the phenomena of contradiction.
The interdisciplinary collaborative research platform Worlds of Contradiction has existed since 2015 and deals with contradictions “in the fields of contested knowledge” – be it in everyday life or in the academic environment. This includes the most diverse forms such as discrepancies, disparities, deviations, paradoxes, differences, contrasts, and much more. What is interesting is what is perceived, claimed, or negotiated as contradictory. A central scientific goal is to establish contradiction studies as a dynamic and internationally visible interdisciplinary research focus of the University of Bremen and thus to help shape the profile of the university as a whole.
