Reading Circle: Theories of Space
by Corinna Land, Annika Schmidt & Petra Panenka
Upon personal registration over email: corinna.land(at)sk.hs-fulda.de and annika.schmidt(at)sk.hs-fulda.de
How can we understand and conceptualize “space”? How is space socially produced and negotiated? In this self-organized reading circle, we consider concepts of space from sociology, human geography and philosophy and discuss these from differing perspectives of our dissertation topics. We will be meeting approximately once per month online. Meetings and readings are flexibly oriented according to the needs of participants. Joining the reading circle is possible at any time - we look forward to growing!

Conventions and Conferences
April 2022 +++ Workshop — Struggles for Hope: Negotiating the Future in Times of Global Crises
7 & 8 April 2022
The workshop will explore the diversity of visions and practices of future-making in the global, multifaceted crisis of capitalist modernity. We seek to illuminate social contestations over collective futures: What kind of future is likely, what is desirable, what are possible ways to shape tomorrow’s society? What are people’s hopes, fears, ideas and strategies for a social transformation? The workshop promotes the exchange between research on everyday future-relations of nonactivist populations and utopian thinking and prefigurative practices of social movements.
Call for contributions
The workshop provides a space for exchange for early career researchers who are working on these or related questions. Deadline for abstracts: 30 November 2021.
We are also planning a publication that will take up the workshop discussions. If interested, participants will be invited to propose an article.
Here you find the call and further information.

November 2022 +++ Fulda International Autumn School – Mobilities and Human Rights
14 – 18 November
The Fulda International Autumn School is an annual event of the project “Transnational Governance and Human Rights” hosted by the FGCSS.
Under this year’s theme “Mobilities and Human Rights”, the one-week programme offers a range of formats and activities to get into an academic exchange with senior scholars and students from all over the world. In addition to keynotes and lectures from senior scholars who will introduce key research problems, doctoral and advanced master’s students will present their current research projects. In a creative and supportive atmosphere, we will jointly explore the diversity of (im)mobilities, discussing current theoretical and methodological challenges and providing new ideas and perspectives.
Perspectives and topics
- Human rights and (im)mobility in labour migration
- Displacement, development and forced migration
- Intersectional perspectives on (im)mobility
- Student mobility and transnational knowledge production
- Doing research in a mobile world
Please find the full programme here
The keynotes are open to the interested public upon registration. Everybody who would like to participate in our workshops, learn and discuss with us, is welcome to join us. If possible, we kindly ask to participate throughout the whole programme. Full participation is the prerequisite for a certificate.
