News from May 19, 2023

The scientists from a total of nine disciplines in the social sciences, humanities and cultural studies deal with affects and emotions as fundamental moments of the social. They consider these to be essential factors of coexistence in societies of the 21st century. Prof. Dr. Hansjörg Dilger, social and cultural anthropologist at Freie Universität Berlin and spokesperson of SFB 1171, emphasizes the high scientific and social significance of these topics: "In the third funding period, we not only want to investigate the central role of affects and emotions in the debate about ways of life, self-understandings, and social institutions. We also want to explore from an interdisciplinary perspective how affects and emotions themselves become a matter of contention in conflicts about present and future coexistence." In addition to Freie Universität, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg and Zeppelin Universität Friedrichshafen are participating in SFB 1171 in its third term.
