The Middle East as a utopia?

Zionism, socialism, pan-Arabism, Islamic Republic: The Middle East and its history in the course of the twentieth century has been shaped by utopian ideologies and ideas. However, today this global region is often perceived only as a space of chaos: violence, seemingly intractable conflicts and corruption. Do literary and artistic utopias of the Middle East still have something to say? Where could concrete starting points for new utopias in the region lie, beyond the realm of day-to-day politics? This is what Simon Wolfgang Fuchs (University of Freiburg) and Caspar Battegay (University of Basel) discuss with author and historian Dana von Suffrin, organization researcher Ayad Al-Ani, Islamic Studies scholar Gudrun Krämer, and journalist Dunja Ramadan at the Theater Neumarkt in Zurich. Following the discussion, a concert by Ella Ronen and Omri Hason is planned.

On occasion of their 20th anniversary, members of Die Junge Akademie invite the public to take part in various events in diverse spaces within the event series diejungeakademie@ and foster dialogue with the audience on scientific topics. This event is held in cooperation with the Omanut Association and the Theater Neumarkt Zurich.

The event will take place as a hybrid event in compliance with the hygiene rules of the protection concept in the Theater Neumarkt Zurich.
Discussions will take place in German. A livestream will be available on the YouTube channel of Die Junge Akademie. Admission is free of charge.

    • Zur A/Symmetrie pädagogischer Autorisierungen in Schule und Unterricht

      Kolloquium „A/Symmetrie — Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven“

      Zumeist gilt das Verhältnis von Erziehenden und Zu-Erziehenden aufgrund des Generationenverhältnisses als ein asymmetrisches. Diese anthropologisch bedingt verstandene Asymmetrie bildet einen zentralen legitimatorischen Ausgangspunkt zur Autorisierung pädagogischen Handelns in der Schule. Paradoxerweise wird die pädagogische Autorisierung zugleich als eine verstanden, die auf ihre eigene Abschaffung hin ausgerichtet ist. Thorsten Merls Vortrag beleuchtet entlang dieser erziehungswissenschaftlichen Perspektiven das Verhältnis von A/Symmetrie und pädagogischer Autorisierung im Kontext des Schulunterrichts.
