Still far ahead, our project team of the CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe” at the University of Cologne is already looking forward to the international conference we will be organising from November 3–5, 2020, on the topic of our subproject: “Materiality and Agency: Archaeological, Anthropological, and Philosophical Perspectives”.
The first annual conference of our DFG Research Unit “Resilience in Religion and Spirituality” will be organised jointly by my subproject on “Empathy and Resilience” and the subproject on “Mindfulness and Resilience” from September 30 – October 2, 2020, at the University of Bonn.
From August 3–7, the second DFG Symposium in Philosophy will hopefully take place at the Villa Vigoni on the Lago di Como in Northern Italy. I’m looking forward to a week of intense discussion and presenting some ideas on the relationship between imagination and narration as modes of understanding.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has granted us funding for the Research Unit “Resilience in Religion and Spirituality“, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Cornelia Richter at the University of Bonn. I am extremely happy to be part of this group with a project on “Resilience and Empathy”.
