Trip to Frauen- and Herreninsel / Lake Chiemsee on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023.

 

AvH generously agreed to cover the costs for the boat trip and a lunch on Fraueninsel. Numerous activities on both islands are possible on your own after lunch.

 

Exkursion der Regionalgruppe München am 23. September 2023 an den Chiemsee

 

Trotz der längeren Anfahrt haben 50 Personen an unserem Tagesausflug an den Chiemsee teilgenommen.

Mit dem Boot ging es zunächst auf die Fraueninsel, dort haben wir uns im Klosterwirt gestärkt und in kleineren Gruppen danach die Insel erkundet.

Die herrlichen Gärten, die Klosterkirche, die karolingische Torhalle und die uralten Linden wurden bewundert. Danach ging es weiter zur Herreninsel. Dort konnte jeder nach Belieben entweder das königliche Schloss Herrenchiemsee besichtigen oder das Augustiner Chorherrenstift oder einfach nur die Insel erforschen.

Ein volles Programm mit vielen Highlights.

 


Salon on October 25th.

 

We will meet in person at the IBZ (Amalienstrasse) for a scientific talk with our customary reception with wine and cheese. During the Humboldt Salon on October 25th,

     Paweł Figurski         will give a talk titled

    "Medieval Liturgy and the Making of Poland:  A Study in Premodern State-Formation"

 In modern historiography, Polish state-formation was perceived as a gradual process stretching back to the eighth and ninth centuries. Today, as a result of the most recent excavations, the formation of the first Polish realm is now viewed as the revolution that occurred within one/two generations living in the tenth century. Instead of largely consensual state-building, the emergence of Poland was marked by violent military actions, brutal subjugation of already existing communities, and large-scale slave trade of the conquered. The birth of Poland, instead of reflecting a Rousseauian consensus, now seems closer to Charles Tilly’s view on state-formation as an organized crime. Nevertheless, numerous early medieval sources expressed a highly positive assessment of the "regnum Poloniae". Therefore, the question that remains, which this paper seeks to answer, is: what enabled the perception of the early medieval Piast kingdom as a savior rather than a predator? It seems to me that the explanation of the process that led to the sacralization of Poland can be found in the realm usually overlooked in debates about medieval state-formation, namely, the Christian liturgy. In this paper, I will present how dozens of extant liturgical manuscripts enabled the transformation of the predatory warfare polity into the local embodiment of heavenly Jerusalem. Liturgical codices, imported with the first clerics to Poland, provide invaluable contributions to the transfer of ideas and knowledge between the emerging and the established Christianity. These sources will be analyzed with the newly created digital tool.


Salon at the IBZ on July 12th

 

On behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our Salon. We will meet in person at the IBZ (Amalienstrasse) for a scientific talk with our customary reception with wine and cheese.We will meet at 19:30 for a get-together with wine and cheese. The talk will start around 20°°.

 

Dr. Kathleen Jepson, Institut fürPhonetik und Sprachverarbeitung, LMU, München will give a talk titled:

 

   "The phonetics and phonology of prosody in Australian languages"

 

Patterns of speech described for Australian languages from a phonological perspective (i.e., regarding the organisation of speech sounds) are often drawn upon to exemplify particular structural types in cross-linguistic research. On the other hand, phonetics (the study of speech acoustics, perception, and articulation) is underrepresented in research on the languages of Australia. The two fields of phonology and phonetics are closely linked; in view of phonetic evidence, some phonological findings have been challenged, highlighting the important role of phonetics in language description. My research sits within both fields, focusing on aspects of prosody. This includes word-level phenomena such as stress (i.e., the prominence of one syllable within a word), as well as sentence-level patterns such as intonation (i.e., the sentence-level meaningful modulation of pitch).

 

To understand the speech patterns and prosodic systems of Australia’s Indigenous languages, I work with people to make speech recordings and conduct listening experiments. In my research, I design experimental tasks that address particular questions about the sound system of the language, and travel to undertake fieldwork. This involves brining suitable recording equipment to collect data for analysis, and also connecting with people to form ongoing relationships. Using a range of methods, I analyse the collected audio recordings to describe the speech patterns and test hypotheses about the structure of the prosodic system.

 

In this talk I will discuss1) findings on aspects of word- and sentence-level prosody in Australian languages and their contribution to the cross-linguistic understanding of how languages can be structured, as well as 2) how this type of work is conducted.

Exkursion der Regionalgruppe München am 16.Juni 2023 in den Botanischen Garten München

 

Bei bestem Wetter führten uns zwei kompetente Mitarbeiterinnen des Gartens "durch das Unterholz".

Die 31 Teilnehmer erhielten auf ihre Fragen  fachkundige Antworten und  hörten auch so einige amüsante Anektoden zur Geschichte des Gartens.

Im Anschluß saßen wir noch fast zwei Stunden im Café des Gartens zusammen und haben uns angeregt unterhalten.


Dear Humboldtians,

we offer you a guided tour through the Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg (Botanic Garden Munich) on Friday, June 16, 2023.

AvH generously agreed to cover the costs for the entrance fee, the guided tour and a joint coffee break after the tour.

The excursion is also open for family members and partners.

 

Planned timetable:

To get there, take Munich MVV tram 17 and get-off at the tram stop “Botanischer Garten”, which is directly opposite the garden entrance at Menzinger Str. 65, Munich.

Mind: Finding a parking nearby is not easy.

We will meet in front of the cashier desk not later than 13.45 h, so that I can buy the entrance tickets for all of you and the two guided tours I booked can start at 14.00 h.

After the tour, at approx. 15.00 h, we join all  for some refreshments in the Garden’s Café.

The Botanic Garden is open until 18.00 h, so after the refreshments you can still visit the glasshouses or the more remote parts of the garden.

 

Registration

Please register each person attending until Wed., June 7  by sending me an email with the following Information:

-         Last Name

-         First Name

-         Institution/Affiliation

-         Humboldtian or family member or other

Tefera Tadesse during his talk May 9th

Salon on May 9th

 

On behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our Salon on May 9th. We will meet in person at the IBZ (Amalienstrasse) for a scientific talk with our customary reception with wine and cheese.

Tefera Tadesse will give a talk titled:
The impacts of Covid-19 on personal, academic, and research experiences of Ethiopian postgraduate students in healthcare professions
Postgraduate students are supposed to demonstrate higher competencies, independence, and multidisciplinary approaches while shouldering family responsibilities, and they may absorb the larger magnitude of COVID-19-induced shocks than other university students. However, the literature about the impact of COVID-19 on postgraduate students, particularly health professionals, is somewhat limited, and those limited studies focus on nurses and doctors in clinical settings. Thus, other health professions and non-clinical settings are far less noticeable. Also, existing literature shows the lack of a coherent framework, subsuming a set of interrelated dimensions, to explore the impacts of COVID-19 on postgraduate students. With this study, we attempted to address these shortcomings by comprehensively assessing postgraduate students’ personal, academic, and research experiences across sociodemographic groups. Findings indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted their health and well-being and significantly disrupted progress toward their degrees. We provide general recommendations to mitigate challenges and enhance the capacity of individuals and universities.

 

We will meet at 19:30 for a get-together with wine and cheese, the talk will start around 20:00.

Please send an email to dgh@ph.tum.de if you want to participate so we can arrange appropriate seating and refreshments.

With kind regards,

Evi Vogel, Lutz Cleemann and Stefan Recksiegel (Humboldt Club Munich)

 Exkursion zur Ilkahöhe am 19.03.2022

 

 

Sonnenschein und blauer Himmel. Beste Bedingungen für unsere gut 3 stündige Rundwanderung von Tutzing am Starnberger See hinauf zum Deixlfurter See, weiter zur Ilkahöhe und wieder zurück.Versorgt wurden die 37 Wanderer mit von der Stiftung gesponsorten Lunchpaketen, die zu Beginn ausgeteilt wurden.  Während der Wanderung wurde in wechselnden Gruppierungen angeregt  geplaudert.  Die Aussicht auf den Starnberger See und die Alpen war zwar durch den noch immer in der Luft liegenden Saharastaub etwas gedämpft, aber immer noch wunderschön.

 

 

Viele Teilnehmer haben sich bereits erkundigt, wann wieder eine Exkursion angeboten wird.

Dear Humboldtians,

 

on behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our next Salon on November 30th.

However, due to the soaring Covid numbers we will NOT be able to offer a meeting in person in the IBZ.

 

If you plan to attend via Zoom, please connect at least 15min before the start of the talk (20.00) so that we can sort out possible technical difficulties before the talk.

 

Zoom ID 94239549694, password 941864,

https://tum-conf.zoom.us/j/94239549694?pwd=WHpkMkUyQVg5SXg4TWRkcWI2azJZZz09

 

Around 20:00, Prof. Dr. Rainer W. Gerling will start his presentation on:

 

IT-Security in Research: Why should I care?

 

IT-Security in scientific environments is a sensible subject. The openness of science with the international scientific exchange and the restrictions of IT-Security and data privacy are – a least on first sight – seemingly contradicting goals. You will see that there are indeed threads to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and systems in scientific research. Nevertheless, a good organization of IT-Security can also enable scientific exchange and international collaboration exchanging research data. Examples of incidents and examples of good practice will be shown.Excellent science is not possible without good IT-Security.

Prof. Dr. Rainer W. Gerling is a theoretical physicist and a data privacy and IT-Security expert. He has been professionally involved in information technology for over 40 years and published one of the first articles in Germany on computer viruses back in 1986. Prof. Gerling was a Feodor-Lynen-Stipend in 1988/89 at the Center for Simulational Physics at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA. 1993 he changed from science to science-administration. From 1993 until his retirement in 2020, he was the data privacy and IT-Security officer of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. As co-founder, and from 2008 to 2020 as chairman, of the Information Security Working Group of German Research Institutions (AKIF), he played a key role in shaping the information security governance of German universities and research institutions. Today Prof. Gerling teaches Information Security at the Munich University of Applied Sciences and speaks at conferences and workshops.

 

We hope that we will have a lively discussion during and after the talk via Internet, as already quite a few expressed their interest in the subject.

 

With kind regards,

Lutz Cleemann, Stefan Recksiegel and Evi Vogel,

(Humboldt Club Munich)
