Workshop “Geosophy”

Dec 07, 2017

Geosophy...a catchy term for the study of geographical knowledge. We think that the spatial distribution and patterning of material remains contain important information about the way how people thought about their world and how they created their landscape. 
During the workshop we want to discuss the different meanings and potentials of geosophy concepts. Besides we will discuss to which degree we are able to reconstruct and model "geographical knowledge" in order to gain new insights for the study of societal transformation processes.

Gender Transformations in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies

Mar 08, 2018 to Mar 10, 2018

Gendertransformationen in prähistorischen und archaischen Gesellschaften, 8.–10. März 2018Inside the network of components determining the social behaviour, gender adopts a dominant role in the societies from late Pleistocene hunter-gatherers to early state societies. Therefore, a strong interaction between gender identities, social diversity and transformation processes can also be expected for prehistoric and archaic times. With the workshop we want to provide a platform to stimulate discussions on a) gender transformations in the past and b) the effects of gender inequality on scientific discourses in our research community.
