Joint Seminar Sessions in Winter Term 2020/21 (HUVAC-Project 2021 “Simone Weil Revisited”)
January 12 @ 8:00 January 29 @ 17:00
In Winter Term 2020/2021, three digital seminars revolving around Simone Weil took place (Martina Bengert’s B.A. seminar, Department of Romance Studies, HU Berlin: “Fractures, Splinters, Lists. Reading Simone Weil”; Sandra Lehmann’s M.A. seminar, Department of Intercultural Philosophy of Religion, University of Vienna: “Simone Weil. Mysticism and Politics”; Esther Ramharter’s M.A. seminar, Department of Philosophy, University of Vienna: “Philosophy of Religion”). In the spirit of productive heterogeneity, these three courses brought together students who were at different stages in their studies (BA/MA/PhD) as well as students from different fields of study, including Romance Studies, Literary Studies, Philosophy, as well as Catholic and Protestant Theology and Education. Both teachers and students found the joint sessions extremely enriching and stimulating as these sessions created an awareness of various interdisciplinary approaches to Weil’s texts.
