Coffee Talks – Research on Digitality and Digital Methods at Campus Mitte

At Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and especially at Campus Mitte, there are many researchers and projects that deal with digitality from a humanities and social science perspective, reflect on its consequences for society as well as our disciplinles, or apply digital methods to their research. With this compact series of talks, we offer a framework for getting to know each other, for exchanging ideas and perhaps also for identifying common interests and possible potentials for cooperation.

The Coffee Talks format is quite simple: Each Thursday at 9.15 am, one of the researchers gives a short, 10 minute talk on a specific project. The events take place on a hybrid basis – both at the researcher’s location in the respective faculty and also via Zoom. However, for all those who take part on site, there will be – if you like – a freshly brewed coffee and the opportunity to talk afterwards.

The following faculties are participating: Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Language, Literature and Humanities, Faculty of Theology and the Berlin Institute for Islamic Theology.

If you have any further questions or would like to present your project at the Coffee Talks, please let us know!

Organizers: Carolin Odebrecht, Torsten Hiltmann, Nikolaus Wolf

NB: In view of the current Corona situation, for the time being we will hold the next meetings only online via zoom. Coffee will be served later or - virtually - in our after-talk lounge, where we can continue the discussion after the talk in a more comfortable environment than in zoom.
