“Looking Back – Looking Forward” Lecture Series Continues

This winter semester, “A Foray into 50 Years of the University of Bremen” will continue. Four lectures will focus on topics such as the early days of the university, project-based courses, and the West German women’s movement. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. on October 28, 2021.

The “Looking Back – Looking Forward. A Foray into 50 Years of the University of Bremen” lecture series is being organized by the History Department (Modern and Contemporary History) in cooperation with the University of Bremen Archive. It focuses on the history of the former reform university against its social and political background. While some talks focus on the 1970s era, others trace their themes into the present and future. Which challenges does the university have to face – now and in the future? In which direction can and should it develop? What past experiences can be built upon?

On October 28, the historian Professor Heinz-Gerhard Haupt will speak about the University of Bremen in its early days. The talk will combine historical facts about the university’s founding and its context in the 1970s with his own experiences as a university lecturer. The lecture on November 11 will cover topics ranging “From the ‘Bremen Model’ of Project-Based Courses to Research-Based Learning as University Profile.” Dr. Margrit E. Kaufmann, cultural scientist, will discuss the history and the significance of the University of Bremen’s teaching profile and will discuss how diversity-oriented research-based learning is carried out in the field of cultural studies. Students Juliana Lux and Arved Pietrzak talk about their own experiences with research-based learning.
The former president of the German Research Foundation (DFG), German Studies Professor Peter Strohschneider, will shed light on the “pluralistic university” on November 18. Professor Petra Lucht, sociologist and physicist, will speak about topics of gender and gender research in the STEM subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences, and technology) on December 9. The lectures will begin at 6 p.m.
