History of Cultural Studies and its Methods II (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Armin Beverungen, Timon Beyes

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 14.027

Inhalt: Organized as a lecture series, this course focuses on central themes and thinkers in the globalized sphere of cultural theorizing within the humanities and social sciences. The concerns, debates and methodologies of international cultural theorizing in part also draw upon different traditions and geographies of thought, or take the form of ›mobile theories‹ and ›travelling concepts‹ translated into different contexts, and change as they travel. The lecture series is, as suggested by the cultural theorizing explored, based on an understanding of culture as plural, as cultures that are continouously produced through, and made manifest in, embodied practices, discourses, spaces, emotional registers, technologies and organizational forms. In a globalized world, these cultural constellations are also geographically and linguistically plural, shaped by both global proceses and local conditions. They are thus contested and to some degree contingent. The terms and methods of cultural theorizing, its history and present, are invariably part of this ›cultural production and contestation‹. We hope that the lectures and discussions will therefore allow us to defamiliarize and enrich our ways of seeing and understanding, to make sense (differently) about how invariably globalized cultures take place.

Haniel Summer Academy: Ecologies of Organization (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Timon Beyes

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Do, 28.04.2022, 16:15 - Do, 28.04.2022, 17:45 | C 7.307 | Kick off: date is presumably (in the coordination)
Einzeltermin | Mo, 30.05.2022, 09:00 - Fr, 03.06.2022, 16:00 | extern

Inhalt: +++ If you would like to participate please send an email to haniel_esa@leuphana.de until April 4th, 2022 (max. 1 page covering your motivation why you would like to attend the Summer Academy). You will be notified until April 7th. The maximum number of Lüneburg participants is 10. +++ The European Summer Academy, enabled by the German Haniel Foundation, brings together MA students from five different European business schools and universities: the University of St. Gallen, the Copenhagen Business School, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Ca’Foscari University of Venice, and Paris Dauphine University. The Academy will have its base in Berlin. Thanks to the generous support of the Haniel Foundation, we can offer free accommodation as well as covering (train) travel to Berlin and back. Course content To study and help shape ecologies of organization becomes ever more urgent. Ecosystems are collapsing in front of our eyes and news of environmental breakdown have become a seemingly endless spectacle. Can practices of organization, management and entrepreneurship find meaningful ways to address runaway climate change, or are they locked into business as usual? Addressing this question requires a rethinking and an understanding of organization as fundamentally ecological. In the wake of ecological thinking, the human and her/his organizational forms is being placed amid a democracy of things, and of things then being enlisted into human affairs. Ecological thinking studies the relational processes of systemic openness, receptivity and affect, and potential through which life worlds are organized, including those of human beings. In this sense, talks of units, individuals, entrepreneurs and formal organizations gives way to talk of gatherings, spheres, assemblages, milieus or interiors; talk of cause and effect gives way to talk of immanence, affect, resonance, touch and association; talk of laws gives way to talk of tendencies and patterns; talk of symbols and classifications gives way to talk of expressions and ruptures; talk of prediction gives way to talk of attunement and speculation; talk of categories gives way to talk of intensities; talk of power as control gives way to talk of power as a vital, life force and vulnerability. The Summer Academy is dedicated to understand and exploring organizational and entrepreneurial forms and process along these lines: as fundamentally ecological. This entails using the city of Berlin as empirical site for tracing and inquiring into ecologies of organization in different shapes and guises. Joined by researchers of all participating universities as well as guests, we will jointly work towards an exhibition of the students’ findings on organizational ecologies. Course structure After an introduction/preparation session, the course is organized in five parts and runs over 5 days, which consist of thematic discussions, on-site visits, guest speakers, preparatory exercises and project work. Part 1 consists of exploring the history and present of understanding organization, management and entrepreneurship ecologically. Part 2 consists of field work and empirical research based on specific organizational initiatives, processes and milieus. In Part 3, we develop empirical findings through literature research. Part 4 is for preparing and executing the exhibition, while Part 5 is setting up the exhibition and presenting the findings.

Inhalt: This class brings together students from the MA Cultural Studies: Culture and Organization and the MA Kulturwissenschaften: Medien und Digitale Kulturen. It is a double seminar taught by Ilia Antenucci, Armin Beverungen, Timon Beyes and Maja-Lee Voigt. The seminar consists of two related parts. The first part is concerned with theories of (social) media and (digital) organization. The course is dedicated (and to some degree structured by) specific, and specifically mediating, objects that shape the practices, processes and affects of organization. Such media configure organizational (power) relations that are in-built into the devices and apparatuses of organizational life. Therefore, ›media organize‹ (Reinhold Martin). Practices of cultural labour and cultural organization, as well as the built environments of citites and everyday practices of urban living, rely on such media. At the same time, it takes labour, organizing and organizations to produce media (consider only the contemporary behemoths of data-driven and platform-based organization). The first part of the class prepares you conceptually for the practical, project-based work of the second part of the class. It is focused around key approaches to (social) media and (digital) organization, with lectorials on different conceptual approaches to thinking about and studying media and organization. These are complemented by the practical task of writing about how media organize and are organized, loosely built on The Oxford Handbook of Media, Technology and Organization Studies (eds. Beyes/Holt/Pias). The first part will also already introduce specific approaches to thinking about media and organization in the city and the arts. The second part of the class is project-based, with two parallel offers. As students you will be able to choose which project-based part to take part in, space permitting. Allocations will be made at the beginning of the semester. Both projects follow loosely similar logics of introducing some methodologies of approaching the study of how media organize the arts and the city, followed by some field work, and bringing both projects together in a joint student conference at the end, where students will be asked to creatively present the findings of their exploratory research. Project 1: Media Organize... the Arts (taught by Timon Beyes) It has become a truism to claim that cultural institutions are undergoing an enormous shift in how they organize and perform their work, propelled by the ubiquity, everydayness and agencies of digital infrastructures, information technologies and media platforms (all of this further fuelled by the ongoing pandemic). But inasmuch is this true? And how does this ›shift‹ take place, and what are its consequences? This part of the seminar offers a ›backstage experience‹ of one of Germany’s leading (and comparably young) concert halls (that is itself part of a renowned musical academy mainly open to aspiring musicians from the Middle East and North Africa, and based on the postcolonial thought of Edward Said). The students will become fieldworkers and participant observers to study how everyday (digital) technologies organize a concert hall. They will zoom in on specific, and specifically mediating, objects that shape cultural organization and cultural labour, its practices, processes and affects. Media Organize…the arts takes place in cooperation with the Barenboim-Said Academy and the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin. The Barenboim-Said Academy is pursuing a ›digital innovation‹ project funded by the Federal Government of Germany. The seminar is fieldwork-based (mainly interviews and participant observation) and will thus partly take place in Berlin. Full participation will entail adhering to the covid regulations of the Barenboim-Said Academy and the Pierre Boulez Hall. Please note that proof of vaccination or recovery as well as daily testing might be mandatory. Project 2: Media Organize... the City (taught by Armin Beverungen, Ilia Antenucci, Maja-Lee Voigt) This project focuses on how media organize the city. Even before Friedrich Kittler famously suggested that the city is a medium, theorists such as Lewis Mumford observed the media technological constitution of cities and their organization. The city has always been organized through and with media technologies, while more recently the technologies of ubiquitous and environmental computing, the field of urban informatics and approaches to smart cities have promised to turn cities into computers. While the city is thoroughly infused with infrastructures of sensing and calculation, with Shannon Mattern we insist that the city is not a computer and ask what constitutes the ›smartness‹ of cities. The project will revolve around a set of different group projects exploring how media organize the city, focused on the city of Hamburg, with groups having an input on what aspects they would like to focus on. This could involve e.g. ›data walks‹ in which the sensory media in the city are explored, or ›deep mappings‹ of urban infrastructure to explore their histories and developments, or ›countermappings‹ of alternative urban media. An introductory session where groups are constituted and methods are discussed is followed by two days of fieldwork in Hamburg. The project concludes with presentations, jointly with ... the Arts.

Inhalt: Dieses Masterforum verbindet die Präsentation und gemeinschaftliche Diskussion aktueller Masterarbeitsprojekte mit - je nach Zahl der Projektvorstellungen - ein bis drei Sitzungen zum wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten. Dem Zitieren, Gendern und Übersetzen gewidmet, möchten wir in diesen Sitzungen Fragen diskutieren, die auf den ersten Blick lediglich Formalia betreffen - Wie zitiere ich richtig? (Wie) Verwende ich gendergerechte Sprache? Welche Regeln gibt es für die "eigene Übersetzung", die etwa von fremdsprachiger Sekundärliteratur angefertigt wird? - um daran deutlich zu machen, dass diese scheinbar formalen Fragen niemals nur rein technische Entscheidungen sind, sondern dem Inhalt eben gerade nicht äußerlich bleiben. Kann (und soll) man das "N-Wort" zitieren? Kann man von Studentinnen oder Student*innen im 19. Jahrhundert sprechen, obwohl Frauen zu dieser Zeit nicht zum Hochschulstudium zugelassen waren? Und was ist - nicht zuletzt vor dem Hintergrund aktuell geführter Debatten um den politischen Gehalt des Übersetzens (und der Identität der Übersetzer*innen) - bei Übersetzungen, die man für die MA-Arbeit selbst anfertigt und mit dem Hinweis ("Eigene Übersetzung") ausweist, zu beachten? +++ The Master Colloquium is dedicated to the presentation and joint discussion of the participating students’ master thesis projects. Depending on the number of projects presented and discussed, selected sessions will be given over to questions of academic research and academic writing, esp. to issues of referencing, gendering and translation. While such matters - at first sight - seem to be ’trivial’ or technical formalities, a more in-depth engagement helps us understand and reflect how they inform they way we think and write, and how they are part of a society’s cultural politics.
