International Conference Shantiniketan Hellerau - Universalist Education in the Pedagogic Province

In the 19th century, urbanization and industrialization changed the globe dramatically and were feared by many. The universalist education movement arose as a countercultural reaction to these developments. Idealists strove to create a new world and educate the “new man.” Shantiniketan and Hellerau paradigmatically represent the urge to counteract the drastic changes the world underwent back then. Initiated by the Deutsch-Indische Gesellschaft e.V. and the Department for South Asia Studies of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Kindly supported by: Institut für Asien und Afrikawissenschaften (IAAW), Indien-Stiftung e.V., Dr. Heinz-Horst Deichmann, Helmut Nanz

International Workshop: Beyond the Line - Cultural Constructions of the Sea (June 22–23, 2012)

The international workshop “Beyond the Line – Cultural Constructions of the Sea” examines the relationship between land and sea. It investigates how the currently changing constellations in South-South relationships can be understood historically and culturally. If the active participation of the regions south of the Sahara since early modern times is denied, what is the situation today? And beyond that: is it justified in any way to attribute a historical insignificance to regions neighboring Africa on the Atlantic and Indian Oceans?

The international workshop “Beyond the Line – Cultural Constructions of the Sea” examines the relationship between land and sea. It investigates how the currently changing constellations in South-South relationships can be understood historically and culturally. If the active participation of the regions south of the Sahara since early modern times is denied, what is the situation today? And beyond that: is it justified in any way to attribute a historical insignificance to regions neighboring Africa on the Atlantic and Indian Oceans? These questions will be analyzed in the framework of a current trend in the social and cultural sciences that is called the “oceanic turn.” The symposium aims to pursue these questions and make its own contribution to them. Participants present the Atlantic and Indian Oceans as a cultural space. Individual panel discussions examine case studies of literature, migration, piracy, and trade cultures. In this way, research results on the sub-Saharan part of Africa will be investigated in their relationship to the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and new approaches will be formulated. Conceived by Michael Mann and Ineke Phaf-Rheinberger
