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.
