Veranstaltungen

Die Konzeption und Durchführung wissenschaftlicher Veranstaltungen am IRS sind eng an die Forschungsplanung und Publikationsstrategie in den Projekten gebunden. Auf Konferenzen, Workshops, Kolloquien sowie im Rahmen von Fachsitzungen und Sessions großer Fachtagungen werden die IRS-Forschungen und deren Arbeitsergebnisse sichtbar gemacht und mit der Scientific Community diskutiert. Mit der „International Lecture on Society and Space“ hat das IRS eine eigene Veranstaltungsreihe etabliert, in der zweimal jährlich renommierte Wissenschaftler/-innen aus dem Ausland zu einem Vortrag mit anschließendem PhD-Seminar am Folgetag zu Gast am Institut sind. Das IRS organisiert darüber hinaus regelmäßig Transferveranstaltungen mit Entscheidungsträgern aus Politik und Gesellschaft, die auf eine praxisorientierte Diskussion von Forschungsergebnissen des IRS aus­gerichtet sind.

Peter Baumbach über Gebautes, Gedachtes und Gesehenes

Der Architekt und bildende Künstler Peter Baumbach (geb. 1940) hat insbesondere in Rostock, wo er seit 1964 lebt und arbeitet, zahlreiche Bauten realisiert, oft zusammen mit seiner Frau Ute. Aufmerksamkeit fand u.a. das unter seiner Leitung Mitte der 1980er Jahre in Plattenbauweise errichtete „Fünfgiebelhaus“ am Universitätsplatz, das innovativ traditionelle und künstlerische Elemente aufnahm. Als Berater des Oberbürgermeisters von Addis Abeba war Baumbach mehrere Jahre lang maßgeblich an der Entwicklung der äthiopischen Hauptstadt beteiligt, bis 2005 war er Professor an der Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee. mehr Info

IRS Seminar
26. Februar | 2018

This talk revisits one of the most under-researched topics in the history of 20th century modern architecture: African and Asian engagements of architects, planners, and construction companies from socialist countries. Upon their arrival to postcolonial Ghana and Nigeria, architects from socialist Hungary, Poland, and Yugoslavia drew analogies between the historical experience of Eastern Europe and West Africa as underdeveloped, colonized, and peripheral. This talk will show how these analogies allowed them to draw upon specific design tools and procedures from Eastern European architectural culture – and how their work in West Africa testified to the limits of these correspondences. mehr Info

Theoretical Approaches and Methodological Challenges

It belongs to the central narratives of postmodern societies that information and communication technologies play a key role in all areas of social life. Digital and other types of media have not only changed our communicative activities but in a certain way also percolated to the smallest ramifications of everyday practices. Hence, these developments are interdisciplinary conceptualised and described as “mediatisation” relating shifts of communication and technology with changes of culture and society. The workshop refers to the still polysemous concept of “mediatisation” (i.e. Krotz 2009, Lundby 2009, Hepp 2012, Hjavard 2013) and asks for its general meaning and its special relevance for investigating and understanding urban planning practices. mehr Info

12th IRS International Lecture on Society and Space with Neil M. Coe

It has become something of a truism to state that logistics (a) are crucial to the everyday workings of the global economy and (b) they have been largely neglected by social scientists. Recent work under the banner of critical logistics, however, has started to address this lacuna, revealing the different geopolitical, military, labour and infrastructural logics that underpin the global movements of commodities on which we all depend. In this presentation I identify a persistent gap in this emerging field relating to the study of the firms that actually coordinate global logistical services, the so-called third party logistics (3PL) providers. In my recent work I have been exploring the organizational geographies of the leading 3PL firms in the Asia-Pacific, the largest and fastest growing regional market for logistics in the world. mehr Info

Investigating Space(s): Current Theoretical and Methodological Approaches: Virtuality and Socio-Materiality

The IRS Spring Academy 2018 focuses on the manifold impacts of digitalization and on related social scientific ways of conceiving space. Digitalization circumscribes a technological revolution, encompassing all kinds of rapidly developing information and communication technologies, but in particular the rise of the Internet. If initially the discourse on digital geographies was characterized by the spatially unequal access to the Internet (“digital divide”) and on infrastructural topics and impacts on regional development, more recently the focus of the debate has shifted towards the ubiquity of online worlds. The IRS Spring Academy gives early stages researchers the opportunity to discuss corrent theoretical and methodological trends in spatial research and to present his or her own research to an international audience. mehr Info
