Call for Essays: Past-Present Connectivities – Can We Identify Recurring Social and/or Environmental Patterns in the Past and Present?


In 1749, the Academy of Dijon organised an essay competition to which one Jean-Jacques Rousseau submitted the now famous winning essay. At a time when received dogmas were coming under increasing pressure, Rousseau wrote in the enlightened spirit of free, reflective, and critical inquiry.

In this spirit, the Reflective Turn Forum of the Cluster of Excellence ROOTS at Kiel University, Germany, declares an international open essay competition on the following topic:

» Past-Present Connectivities: Can We Identify Recurring Social and/or Environmental Patterns in the Past and Present? «

In your email, please include your name and contact details. Please submit your essay in the PDF format attached to your email.

The competition is open to contributions from all disciplines, provided they address the competition topic. For more information, see below.

Subject to a peer-review and an editorial process, selected contributions will be published in a joint volume edited by the organisers. In addition, the editors will identify three particularly stimulating contributions whose authors will be invited to contribute to the next International Open Workshop organised in Kiel in March 2023 (travel and accommodation paid by the organisers). The three selected contributors will also receive a prize money of 1000 Euro each.

Medical Life Sciences

Welcome to your new home, six reasons to choose this master's program, how do you want to continue.

Open the door to a career in molecular disease research with the Master programme Medical Life Sciences at the Faculty of Medicine at Kiel University. Taught entirely in English, Medical Life Sciences offers you a robust foundation for future jobs in biomedicine.

You will enter a programme that takes you through mandatory classes in molecular pathology and medical statistics, introduces you to bioinformatics and systems biology and provides career days to inform you about professional opportunities after graduation and what is important when applying for a job. You also have a lot of room to follow particular interests in focus areas and electives.

According to our research (MyGermanUniversity), it is the only Master programme that has had a focus on Evolutionary Medicine from the start. Evolutionary Medicine is a discipline that has become more and more important for the last 15 years. Nowhere else can you combine such a focus area with Tracing disease through time as an elective, taking you by the hand to find your way through molecular paleopathology and going back thousands of years in human history.

Looking at the bigger picture, Medical Life Sciences trains you to connect the dots. Expand and use your molecular biology knowledge to raise and answer scientific questions, broaden your skills in science communication and project management to organize and present your research adequately to make the transition into the job market after graduation a rewarding experience.

🔴 Prospective students are strongly advised to inform themselves about the programme on the  course website   🔴

Important note on admissions: Applications and ability assessment

Interested students need to send in an application to take part in the two-stage ability assessment. Candidates have to pass both stages of the assessment before receiving admission.

The M.Sc. Medical Life Sciences program is aimed at " well-informed, motivated bachelor graduated from life sciences and related programs (biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, molecular medicine, biomedicine) who want to pursue a career in biomedical research ." ( source ).

Meet students from around the world

Medical Life Sciences students typically come from everywhere – Asian and African countries, Oceania, European countries, Canada and the Americas, and of course from Germany. Mix and mingle, learn from your fellow students – about different cultures, countries, traditions. Laugh and learn together, share and solve problems together, spend time together, simply make the most of Medical Life Sciences.

Master the data game

Big data is what you get when you conduct biomedical research today: lots and lots of data. How to analyse this data and use the appropriate tools is just as important as the knowledge of the scientific field. Bioinformatics, systems biology and medical statistics are part of the Medical Life Sciences curriculum and teach you a thing or two about data analysis.

Enjoy studying at a university with a long tradition and excellent research opportunities

Founded in 1665, Kiel University has a history that reaches back quite a while; nowadays it is among the top 30 universities in Germany, according to the THE World University Ranking .

Kiel Brennan-Marquez teaches courses in constitutional law, policing, evidence, and law and technology, and he directs the  Center on Community Safety, Policing, and Inequality .  Prof. Brennan-Marquez’s research explores how the legal system organizes and processes information, from surveillance and data collection to the use of evidence at trial. He is interested in the nature of human judgment, as we confront the possibility—in the legal system and elsewhere—of powerful machines capable of outperforming human experts. He lectures widely, to both academic and non-academic audiences, and has published dozens of articles in law reviews and peer-reviewed journals. His recent essay, Extremely Broad Laws , was selected for presentation at the Yale-Harvard-Stanford Junior Faculty Forum.

Professor Brennan-Marquez did his undergraduate work at Pomona College, where he majored in Religious Studies, with an emphasis in philosophy. His senior thesis—the longest in the history of the department—focused on the relationship between theories of belief and capitalism. He received his law degree from Yale, and he served as a clerk to the Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin of the Southern District of New York (retired), who presided over Floyd v. NYC, the challenge to New York City’s now-reformed stop-and-frisk program. Before joining the UConn faculty, Prof. Brennan-Marquez taught at New York University Law School and the Georgetown University Law Center.

University of Kiel

University of Kiel

Kiel University was founded back in 1665. It is Schleswig-Holstein's oldest, largest and best-known university, with 27,000 students and around 3,700 members of staff. It is also the only fully-fledged university in the state. Seven Nobel prize winners have worked here. The CAU has been successfully taking part in the Excellence Initiative since 2006.

Kiel University (also referred to as the CAU) uses research, teaching and the transfer of science to address the great challenges of our time in health, environmental and cultural change, nutrition and energy. In doing so, it ensures peace and preserves livelihoods for future generations. The CAU uses responsible actions to make sure that scientific discoveries are transferred into all sectors of our society by interdisciplinary thought - regardless of short-lived trends - where they are incorporated into political, economic and social decisions aimed at securing peace and prosperity.

Research and teaching that contributes towards peace, prosperity and maintaining a pluralistic, free society, and which addresses the challenges we are facing. They are based on strong disciplines. They require interdisciplinary collaboration. And they deal with transdisciplinary issues. We find solutions to today’s pressing problems and implement these together with stakeholders from society, industry and politics.

  • Essays on the Post-COVID-19 World

How will/should the world change? The corona crisis as an interdisciplinary challenge

by  Véronique Zanetti (ZiF Bielefeld, Germany),  G. Ary Plons ki (UBIAS, IEA São Paulo, Brazil) and  Britta Padberg (ZiF Bielefeld, Germany) | Originally posted on the blog  Interdisciplinarity

Heavily shaken by the corona pandemics many of us are currently thinking about how we could contribute to overcome this unprecedented situation. The COVID-19 crisis not only challenges disease control and crisis management, but may also have long-term and far-reaching impacts on states, societies and international cooperation. There are increasing indications that the world will look different after the crisis and that globalization will be questioned in many areas. According to these observations, the COVID-19 crisis would mark a turning point. In times of deep uncertainty, science is asked to look to the future and to flank a rational discourse about how to react to the current global crisis, and therefore now better cope with other tantamount global challenges such as the climate change.

Since this challenge is genuinely interdisciplinary, Institutes for Advanced Studies are rich pools to fish for visionary ideas and scientific observations. We are very happy that a number of distinguished and young scholars from different fields and countries agreed to write short essays on how the world will change and how it should change. The pieces will be posted bit by bit, two texts per week. Since science and art make a good couple in developing a good sensorium for tectonic shifts we also asked the comic artist Oliver Grajewski to complement and contrast the academic way of thinking. He will deliver one short comic series each week.

We hope that the blog will contribute to sketching out ideas of a world that is more sustainable, fairer and fit for the future and are very much looking forward to lively discussions.
