Thank you for transforming days
27. January 2012, rkopp | 0 Comments

Although I had to leave earlier it was with many new inspirations that transformed and thus enriched my knowledge. The Bernese Winter School was a wonderful experience of the ex-change and the trans-lation of ideas and thoughts and concepts. In this context I would like to cite Jean Paul (1796):

“Fremde Idee sind die Insekten, die den Samenstaub von einem guten Gedanken in uns zu anderen tragen und dadurch befruchten.”

“Foreign ideas are the insects that transport the seeds of a good thought in ourselves to others thus fecundating them.” (my transl.)

Looking forward to continue with this exciting exchange!

Leaving the WinterSchool?
27. January 2012, Klara Gross-Elixmann | 0 Comments

First of all: I do not think that we really leave the WinterSchool, we are just travelling home. With this blog, and the discussed, interconnected and continuing ideas we will certainly stay in touch (formulating a futurological statement).

After this exciting week I actually feel like a sponge: Filled with thougts on different topics, for example Apocaphilia, the professionalization of musicology, the Belarusian identity and its connection to the language, authorship in Role-Playing Games, mathematics and its interrelation to literature, mathematical modelling, ethics in the early Middle Ages in Baghdad, the relasticity of culture, the discourse on energy in the 19th and 20th century, constructions of whiteness in literary texts, the paintings of southeast-asian tumor patients, the discourse on modern dance, the concept of pygmies and its connection to differánce,  philosophical aspects in arabic magazines, or Animal studies and film – to name just a few.

I am very grateful for this exciting week with its many ideas, lecture sessions, and workshops and I now just want to say:

Safe journey home and see you again soon!
