Hans Kilian Lectures
Lecture series in transdisciplinary human sciences
With support from the Köhler Foundation, additional initiatives have been launched in reference to the Hans Kilian Award. Beside the publication of selected papers by Hans Kilian in several volumes (for the information on the first volume please see Publications), since the summer term 2011, the Ruhr University of Bochum has been hosting the Hans Kilian lecture series that feature important topics of social and cultural research in primarily interdisciplinary perspective. In the line with the Hans Kilian Award, this lecture series aims to encourage and promote a new conceptualization of the historical and cultural existence of mankind in the context of the globalised postmodern world. The lectures are open to public.
On November 6 at 4 p.m. in GC 04/45 William S. Sax, a US-American cultural anthropologist, will give a presentation on indigenous medicines in national and transnational contexts. This Hans Kilian guest lecture also inaugurates the workshop "Futures of Indigeneity". For more information please see the flyer:
For any further questions please contact the academic manager of the co-ordination bureau Dr Gala Rebane (Gala.Rebane@rub.de).
