"Conceptions of Europe from an Interdisciplinary Perspective"

In the winter semester 2023/24, the lecture series "Conceptions of Europe from an Interdisciplinary Perspective" will take place for the first time at Paderborn University. In this lecture series, cultural scientists and economists from Paderborn as well as guest researchers from abroad will examine the phenomenon of Europe from different perspectives and disciplines. The programme includes topics such as Europe as a political construction and as an economic area, Europe from the perspective of pop music research, the legal systems of Europe as well as German, Romance, English, historical and philosophical perspectives on Europe.

The Detmold/Paderborn Musicology Seminar (Faculty of Cultural Studies at Paderborn University) is organising a lecture series entitled "Music – Religion – Global" at the Detmold location in the winter semester. In it, international experts will address global manifestations of the interplay between music and religion, covering an arc from South Africa to South America, Tibet and Iran to the Caribbean. The series starts on 11 October with Barbara Alge from Goethe University Frankfurt, who will talk about "Musical legacies of colonial encounters: Música Sacra from Minas Gerais". The events will take place on Wednesdays from 6.15 to 7.45 pm in the Kuppelsaal of the Detmold University of Music (Willi-Hofmann-Straße 5, 32756 Detmold).
