Abstract

Our contemporary political landscape as well as public debate is increasingly dominated by extreme positions. Opinions and assumptions are echoed through (social) media, loose their connection to reality and transform into collective imaginations of more or less homogeneous peer groups. All those groups have their own values, a canon of guiding principles, their specific ingroup language and a common externalized enemy.

Over the course of the semester, every participant will develop a fictional character based on real-world ideologies and analyze their inherent thought patterns. Using a diverse set of methodologies (e.g. roleplay) we will then identify the intellectual and emotional traps of those paradigms, with the objective to overcome them. The concept of this course is experimental and will be further developed together with the participants.

Participation by individuals who are not enrolled in university is highly encouraged. Please register by sending an email to julian@mikrobiomik.org as soon as possible (limited space).
