Course description

Overview:
Every year since 2002, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has published its list of the ten technologies it predicts will have the greatest innovative impact long-term. For 2018, these are: 3-D Metal Printing, Artificial Embryos, Sensing City (Smart Cities), Artificial Intelligence in the Cloud as Everyday-Technology for Everybody, interacting Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence, Babel-Fish Earbuds for Real-Time Translation of Natural Language, Zero-Carbon Natural Gas, Perfect Online Privacy by Hightech-Cryptography, DNA-based Prediction Technologies, Quantum Computers Understanding New Materials. Such lists are created annually; some technologies prove to be just bubbles, others exceed all expectations eliciting challenging societal debates such as the current ones about energy transition technologies, e-mobility or Industry 4.0. However, one issue is beyond all question: Technology changes society, and, vice versa, societal institutions and organisations shape and influence technologies as „social projects“ by fostering, funding, enabling, producing, limiting and preventing them.
Connecting technologies to application, utilisation, deployment and exploitation contexts, i.e. what we call innovation, provides additional social dynamics. Besides technological innovation targeting new commercial products and processes, social innovation applying new organisational structures gains in increasing importance. Often, technological innovation and social innovation meet such as with digitalising public sector services. New technologies and innovations are „radical game-changers“: they have the potential of changing the world we live in quickly and drastically. However, as future objects they are neither predictable nor accessible; with these characteristics they challenge the institutions concerned with societal planning, policymaking and coordination.

This lecture introduces to Sociology of Technology and Innovation – the field, which analyses social phenomena around the production, the structures and the consequences of technologies and innovation. The lecture will provide a brief history of both, Sociology of Technology and Sociology of Innovation. Then, major concepts in both areas will be discussed. For technology, issues will be addressed such as: technology as actor, socio-technical systems, technology and social structure, technology assessment, emerging technologies, techno-futures, technology and foresight, technology and ethics, technology and gender etc. For innovation, introductions will be provided to concepts such as innovation models, innovation systems, technological innovation, social innovation, open innovation, innovation networks, responsible research and innovation, Nexus innovation etc. The lecture will suggest a joint approach to an integrated Sociology of Technology and Innovation using some illustrative examples from recent developments in Artificial Intelligence to demonstrate why this is a useful perspective for understanding the complex social dynamics in technology and innovation.
Finally, the lecture will address governance issues around technology and innovation and connect their sociological analysis to complexity-adapted methodologies in the social sciences.

Learning outcomes:
This course comprises basic texts and programmatic contributions of central scholars in Sociology of Technology and Innovation. It provides an overview of the field and a first introduction to its concepts, debates and state of the art.

Course Requirements and assignments:
For this lecture, no pre-class preparation or class presentation is required. Students will receive an agenda with literature references in the first session of the course, and can obtain a slide deck of the lecture after each session.

Assignment: Exam

The only assignment of this lecture is a written exam as post-class work (Klausur).

Time: Tuesdays, 10.15am - 11.45pm

Course description

“Please continue to offer this course! It will be a great supplement to the regular course of studies for any student in Mainz by nurturing intercultural proficiency, understanding and tolerance. Our generation benefits and struggles with the burden and blessing of globalisation, therefore I think that this course is a chance for anyone to get a glimpse of the required skills connected to living in a thriving global community.”
(Participant's feedback from Winter 2017/2018)

We are keen to welcome students from Mainz and all over the world to participate in this comprehensive intercultural training. In this course you will team up in small groups to reflect on your own cultural background, how it is perceived by others, and how you in turn perceive habits shaped by different cultures. The course is open to all exchange-students at JGU.

In this course you are sensitized to pitfalls lurking when encountering different cultures, are enabled to actively shape your own presence in international contexts and to engage successfully in intercultural situations

The course will take place weekly. In three block sessions taught by Ellen Rana, a professional intercultural trainer and academic from Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, you get an insight into the basic concepts and theories of intercultural communication. You will apply this knowledge to your own intercultural experiences throughout the semester by realising a video project in intercultural teams. Thus, other sessions will consist of workshops about video production and tutorial sessions with hands-on assignments for the video teams.

The course work consists of keeping a learning journal to reflect on your own intercultural experiences in Mainz, of teaming up with other German and international participants to create a short video based on these experiences and reflections, and of finally writing your own critical reflection on the finished video of your group. You will receive 3 ECTS for successfully completing the course as well as a certificate of attendance.

Time: Fridays, 10.00am – 2.00pm
Location: Georg Forster Building, room 02-751

Credits: 3 ECTS

Course description

The study of economic relations is crucial for understanding past societies. Economic archaeology investigates the relationship between ancient populations and their natural resources by exploring the organization of subsistence activities (food procurement, food production) as well as the production, distribution and consumption of all goods available to a past society at a given point of time. Economic archaeology aims to explain the driving forces behind economic strategies and explores the relationship between the economy and the sociopolitical organization of past societies.

The course provides a basic introduction to key concepts and central research questions of economic archaeology by (mostly) focusing on examples from the Ancient Near East (Western Asia). This area is of particular interest for the study of pre-modern economies since it is here, where radical changes such as the transition to sedentary life or the rise of the first cities and states occurred at very early point in human history. While we will primarily draw on Near Eastern examples, the questions discussed in our course are relevant for students from all disciplines dealing with pre-modern societies. We also invite everyone interested in approaches of studying pre-capitalist economies to enroll for our introductory course: neither previous experience with archaeological research nor knowledge of economic theory is required.

Note, that the course is designed as a reading class. Therefore, we expect every participant to read at least one article in preparation to each lesson. The participants of the course will also be asked to actively engage in our joint discussions. The research papers discussed in the seminar will cover a broad range of topics, from the application of economic models and theories in (Near Eastern) archaeology to classic as well as recent articles from the fields of economics, economic anthropology, and economic geography that had and have an impact on archaeological research.

In order to diversify the curriculum of our institute, the joint discussions will be held in English (if at least one non-German speaker will attend).

This course is an introduction to German history and in visual culture as well. Therefore we will reflect German history since the beginning of the 20th century, the time of World War I until the rise of recent nationalistic populism. We will focus on pictures as a historical source. What are pictures expressing, what are they hiding? What is real and what is fake? How can we tell German history by means of visual culture in an international context? We are discussing the production, distribution and effects of pictures in different times. Different perspectives of international students from all subjects are welcome!

Course description

The seminar “Negotiating Regional Identity through Film: Film History in Rhineland-Palatinate” focuses on film and film production in the region Rhineland-Palatine (RLP). The course takes a closer look at the traces of film works since 1903 (under the British production company Heptworth) and the production of early documentaries and genre films. Of special interest is the production of the Western movie “BULL ARIZONA” (1919, Piel Jutzi) which was shot in the Maudacher Bruch. Jutzis combination of an US-American storytelling tradition (Western) and a German scenery marks a new approach and is an interesting starting point for discussions on the usage of different national story telling strategies in the international context.

By reflecting on regional film and well-known sceneries (such as the Porta Nigra, Beilstein on the Moselle or the St. Nicholas Hospital in Bernkastel-Kues) students will gain a deeper knowledge on geographical and historical backgrounds in relation to cultural products. Yet, also critical voices to the Heimatfilm and its connection with the German history should find their place.

Contemporary works will also be taken into account: e.g. the film epos HEIMAT (1981-2012) by Edgar Reitz, which illustrates the life after the end of the Second World War until the German Unification in a village of this region. Reitz reflects in his works not only on the term and meaning of “Heimat” but also discloses its inconsistencies. It creates a new perspective on the “Heimatfilm” genre by questioning its romanticizing attitude. This leads also to the connection between regional productions influence narration and discourse of historical events.

Further topics will be the “Mainzer Tatort” (a crime drama), the media location “Rhineland-Palatine (optional visits of the broadcast station “ZDF” or Film-und Medienforum), international productions in the region, research opportunities for film and media in RLP, film funding and film tourism.

The combination of German film history and regional aspects promotes a deeper cultural understanding which makes this course especially suitable for international students who want to get a closer insight into the “Medienstandort” Rhineland-Palatine.

The class is open for students of any fields of studies.

Kursbeschreibung

Der Westwall („Siegfried Line“) wurde im Westen des Deutschen Reiches seit 1938 als monumentale Verteidigungsanlage in der Vorbereitung auf den Zweiten Weltkrieg errichtet. Die forschungspraktische Übung möchte zum einen multiperspektivisch in die Entstehungs- und Wirkungsgeschichte dieses Bauwerks speziell auf dem Gebiet des heutigen Rheinland-Pfalz einführen. In einer praktischen Fallstudie werden wir uns dann intensiv mit der bislang weithin unbekannten Geschichte eines dem Westwall zugehörigen Arbeitslagers in Rheinzabern beschäftigen. Dieses Lager diente dazu, Westwallarbeiter nach bestimmten Regelverstößen zu disziplinieren. Lediglich ein schmaler Betonring im Wald weist heute auf die Existenz dieses Lagers hin. Die Konsultation von Originalakten soll hierüber näheren Aufschluss erbringen. Abschließend werden wir unsere Ergebnisse für die interessierte Öffentlichkeit aufbereiten. Die Bereitschaft zu besonderem Engagement wird vorausgesetzt.
Mit diesem Projekt sollen Studierende des Faches Geschichte an die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen historischen Forschens herangeführt werden. Auch wenn die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus gemeinhin längst als gut aufgearbeitet gilt, so zeigen sich nicht zuletzt in regionalen oder lokalen Forschungskontexten bemerkenswerte Lücken. Wie geht man wissenschaftlich korrekt mit derartigen Lücken um, wie kann man sie schließen und wie vermittelt man den Prozess von „Wissen wollen“ und „Wissen können“ angemessen einer an Faktizität interessierten Öffentlichkeit?

Austauschstudierende aller Fächer sind in diesem Kurs besonders willkommen. Der Kurs (2 SWS, 3-7 ECTS) vermittelt zum einen am Beispiel der Seminarthematik allgemeine Kenntnisse zur Geschichte des Nationalsozialismus, zum anderen erlaubt er vertieften Einblick in die Wirkungsweisen nationalsozialistischer Herrschaft.

CRiSS – CONTEMPORARY RESEARCH IN SOCIAL SCIENCES

Course description:

LECTURE

Contemporary Research in Social Sciences (CRiSS) is a recurring lecture series organized by the Faculty of Social Sciences, Media and Sports of Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz. Members of the faculty present their current research projects in English and provide an insight into their research activities. Thereby, students learn about the research conducted in their immediate environment beyond their standard courses. They get to know the subjects and methods which characterize the faculty and receive an impression of their lecturers’ working profiles and common research practice.

The group of presenters comprises young researchers from all of the faculty’s disciplines: Communication Studies, Educational Science, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Sports Science. CRiSS provides an opportunity for students as well as researchers from neighboring disciplines to exchange thoughts, network and cooperate. The lectures are held in English to enable an international exchange – with students as well as visiting researchers.

This year, topics include amongst others procrastination and communication technologies, pokemon, homework, abortion, youth and sports, interregional relations between EU and Africa, and attitudes towards migration within Europe.

NEGOTIATING REGIONAL IDENTITY THROUGH FILM: FILM HISTORY IN RHINELAND-PALATINATE

Course description:

The seminar “Negotiating Regional Identity through Film: Film History in Rhineland-Palatinate” focuses on film and film production in the region Rhineland-Palatine (RLP). The course takes a closer look at the traces of film works since 1903 (under the British production company Heptworth) and the production of early documentaries and genre films. Of special interest is the production of the Western movie “BULL ARIZONA” (1919, Piel Jutzi) which was shot in the Maudacher Bruch. Jutzis combination of an US-American storytelling tradition (Western) and a German scenery marks a new approach and is an interesting starting point for discussions on the usage of different national story telling strategies in the international context.

By reflecting on regional film and well-known sceneries (such as the Porta Nigra, Beilstein on the Moselle or the St. Nicholas Hospital in Bernkastel-Kues) students will gain a deeper knowledge on geographical and historical backgrounds in relation to cultural products. Yet, also critical voices to the Heimatfilm and its connection with the German history should find their place.

Contemporary works will also be taken into account: e.g. the film epos HEIMAT (1981-2012) by Edgar Reitz, which illustrates the life after the end of the Second World War until the German Unification in a village of this region. Reitz reflects in his works not only on the term and meaning of “Heimat” but also discloses its inconsistencies. It creates a new perspective on the “Heimatfilm” genre by questioning its romanticizing attitude. This leads also to the connection between regional productions influence narration and discourse of historical events.

Further topics will be the “Mainzer Tatort” (a crime drama), the media location “Rhineland-Palatine (optional visits of the broadcast station “ZDF” or Film-und Medienforum), international productions in the region, research opportunities for film and media in RLP, film funding and film tourism.

The combination of German film history and regional aspects promotes a deeper cultural understanding which makes this course especially suitable for international students who want to get a closer insight into the “Medienstandort” Rhineland-Palatine.

The class is open for students of any fields of studies.

METHODS OF STUDYING LANGUAGE EMPIRICALLY

Course description:

In this compact course ("Empirical studies of language using the EEG methodology: A Hands-on Introduction"), we will introduce various methods of studying language empirically, and move on to discuss those methods that are particularly well-suited for studying the brain bases of language. We will then focus on the EEG technique and learn in detail, the necessary steps to design a linguistic EEG experiment. To enable gaining a practical understanding, we will implement a simple experiment in the EEG Lab, and discuss the basics of data collection as well as analysis. As part of implementing the experiment, we will learn to write simple scripts in the ‚Presentation' programming language as well to adapt existing code for our purposes.

BRECHTS MANUSKRIPT: FLÜCHTLINGSGESPRÄCHE (1940-1942)

Course description

Brechts Manuskript Flüchtlingsgespräche (1940 - 1942), post mortem aus dem Nachlass erschienen, schildert die Begegnung des Arbeiters Kalle und des Physikers Ziffel, die sich in ihrem Exil auf der Flucht vor den Nationalsozialisten in Helsinki begegnen. Ziffel und Kalle betreiben in den vorliegenden 18 Gesprächen eine eigenwillig zutreffende Analyse der Umstände der Flucht und Emigration sowie der politischen Umstände und deren Auswirkungen. Ersichtlich autobiographische Züge weist das Manuskript hierbei nicht auf, jedoch lassen sich Parallelen zu Brechts eigener Emigration ziehen.

Course description:

Im Seminar arbeiten wir gemeinsam an einem Projekt, das Zusammenarbeit, Kreativität und Handwerk fördert. Diese zentralen Elemente verbinden wir unter dem Ziel ein Alphabet für das Philosophicum zu kreieren und zu schreiben. Die Texte des Alphabets bekommen eine Form, die sowohl Ansätze der klassischen Lyrik, aber auch der instagram poetry und der alltäglichen Universitätssprache vereinen kann. In Blockveranstaltungen arbeiten wir in einer mehrsprachigen Gruppe und in einzelnen Tandems und setzen unseren Ideen keine Grenzen. Die Einführung in das kreative Arbeiten und Schreiben begleitet die thematische Recherche und das Schreiben eigener Texte. Auch im Schreibprozess bleiben der Austausch und gegenseitige Reflexion zentrale Elemente. Die geschriebenen Texte werden in diesem Projekt nicht nur selbst geschrieben, sondern auch gedruckt. Wir tauchen in das Universum des Drucks ein und bringen die Texte des Alphabets unter Facheinleitung in der Werkstatt des Gutenberg Museums zum Leben. Das Projekt schließt mit einer kleinen Ausstellung der gedruckten Texte ab.

In diesem Seminar geht es um die Entwicklung und das Ausprobieren eigener Ideen, das Experimentieren mit und beim kreativen Schreiben und das Handwerk des Druckens mittels Handsatz.

Course description:

"Der Rhein zählt zu den bekanntesten Strömen Europas und gilt Vielen als das „Herz Deutschlands"". Auch für Mainz und Rheinland-Pfalz ist der Fluss von großer Bedeutung. Doch was verbirgt sich hinter diesem Strom, der so viele Mythen nährt? Und: Kann ein Fluss Geschichte schreiben? In unserem Kurs wollen wir diesen Fragen nachgehen. Wir werden die „Biographie“ des Rheins seit dem 19. Jahrhundert in einer transnationalen, multiperspektivischen Beziehungsgeschichte zu erschließen versuchen. Dazu beschäftigen wir uns zum einen mit der Problemgeschichte des Flusses, wie sie sich in Politik, Umwelt, Verkehr und Wirtschaft stellt(e). Zum anderen nähern wir uns aus kulturgeschichtlicher Perspektive gleichsam dem Innenleben des Stroms. Eine Vielzahl von Relikten (z.B. Loreley, Rheinromantik) steht für die Träume und Sehnsüchte der Menschen, die mit dem Fluss in Berührung kamen. Welche Rolle spielte also der Rhein in den letzten beiden Jahrhunderten im Gemütshaushalt und als Erinnerungsort für das Selbstverständnis insbesondere der Deutschen? Und wie gestalten sich seine gegenwärtigen Perspektiven in Europa? Im Rahmen der Übung werden wir eine Exkursion unternehmen.
