Perspectives from the Humanities and Social Sciences
by Georg MeinJohannes Pause
The corona crisis has put a spotlight on the importance of science in modern societies. But not only medicine and the ‘hard’ sciences, also the humanities and social sciences are called for: Which kinds of political rationality determine action in the global crisis? How does ‘Corona’ influence our understanding of borders, migration and international relations? How can we learn from the past? What are the challenges we face in organizing everyday life, teaching and research, art and culture, or in dealing with ourselves? And can digital technologies help us to compensate for the negative effects of the crisis?
By trying to find answers to these (and other) questions, the volume brings together contributions from experts at the University of Luxembourg in the fields of psychology and social sciences, literature and linguistics, cultural studies, political science, border studies and educational science. It opens up a panorama of the research taking place at the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences, and demonstrates the kinds of contributions these disciplines make when dealing with crises, and in shaping of society in general. At the same time, it reflects on the limits of knowledge these disciplines encounter in the face of a global challenge.
