  • Universität Hamburg and the GIGA have jointly organised a networking event, taking place on 13–14 June 2022 as a hybrid event, focused on the topic of “Crisis and Reordering.” The overall aim of this event is to bring together project leaders and participants, as well as their international partners, in the following funding lines of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF):  

     Under the leading topic of Crisis and Reordering, this event aims to serve the common interests of all these funding lines and their respective projects/centres. Such common interests include (but are not limited to):  

    • Exploring the topic of crisis and reordering conceptually, theoretically, empirically, and methodologically 

    • Finding research synergies between various projects/centres in these three funding lines  

    • Facilitating mutual learning  

    • Promoting and internationalising research agendas and findings of projects, and connecting projects to international cooperation partners in the Humanities  

    • Discussing how conditions of knowledge production have shifted around the world  

    • Exchanging ideas about transferring scientific knowledge to the public, media, and policymakers 

    • Exchanging ideas and experiences about the impact of the current pandemic and the Ukraine crisis on projects in these three funding lines and discussing how to continue doing research under conditions of crises 

    • Discussing the role of the Humanities in addressing crises  

    • Promoting Germany as a global centre of gravity for Humanities research

    World Order Narratives of the Global South (WONAGO)

    The decades since the late twentieth century are marked by the end of the bipolar world order and the rise of countries of the Global South. Most explanations focus on political and economic power shifts and do not pay much attention to ideas of order, especially those prevalent in the Global South. To provide a more inclusive perspective, this project researches world order narratives in Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Asia. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of its Area Studies strategy.

    What happened to Latin American ideas outside of Latin America during the sixties? Was Latin America a centre of production of ideas and practices? Was the continent a centre of the global sixties? Is it possible to tell a polycentric story of the sixties?
