Dear Humboldtians, 

 

On behalf of the Regional Group Munich of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our next Humboldt Salon on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. It is organized as a guided tour (in English) in the Kunsthalle Munich through the exhibition „Samurai - Pracht des japanischen Rittertums“.

 

Even 150 years after the samurai culture was extinguished, its fascination remains undiminished. The samurai legends are tales of honour and discipline, unquestioning loyalty and absolute self-sacrifice – interwoven with betrayal, intrigue and brutal violence.The presentation at Haus der Kunst is the most comprehensive and wideranging survey of Sundaram’s work at a European institution.

Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller have amassed one of the world’s most outstanding collections of samurai armour, helmets, masks and horse tack, dating from the 7th to the 19th centuries, which is now being presented in Germany for the first time. Featuring in excess of 100 objects, the exhibition brings the spellbinding history of Japanese chivalry to life.

 

The tour will take place *Tuesday, April 9.* Please join us 17:40 (*sharp!*) at the counter of the museum to buy tickets. The tour ends about 19:15.

The guided tour will be financially sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The entrance fee of the museum (14 Euro) has to be paid individually.

 

Venue: Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Theatinerstr. 8, 80333 München

Date:     Tuesday, April 9, 2019, start of the tour 17:45 sharp

In order to facilitate the organization, we would like to ask you to confirm participation and indicate the number of persons attending the guided tour to lutz.cleemann@googlemail.com.

 

With kind regards,

Lutz Cleemann and Stefan Recksiegel

Dear Humboldtians,

On behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer we cordially invite you to the Salon on January 24th which takes place in the Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), as usual. During the Salon a lecture will be given by Prof. Luke Olang (Technical University of Kenya, Nairobi) on: 

 

"Regional Initiatives in Climate and Drought Monitoring in the Horn of Africa".

Luke Olang is a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and Technology of the Technical University of Kenya. He holds a PhD from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. His research interests are in water resource management studies that attempt to understand hydrological variability within the coupled terrestrial water, energy and agricultural cycles. This includes the intersection of human activities and translation of the derived knowledge to improve management of the concerned bio-geo-chemical systems. Luke Olang has published in the larger area of climate change adaptation within the water resources sector, and is presently leading regional initiatives towards enhanced and integrated drought risk management within the Greater Horn of Africa region. As usual, there will be wine and cheese before the talk and a chance to continue the discussion with the speaker after the talk.

 

If you want to join us, please register by sending an email to dgh@ph.tum.de so that we can plan accordingly.

 

Venue: Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ - Amalienstr. 38, 80799 München)

13/01/2018 Humboldt Club: Visit to ESO Supernova in Garching on Sunday, Jan 13th

 

Dear Humboldtians,

 

On behalf of the Regional Group Munich of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our next Humboldt Salon on January 13th, 2019, which will be a visit to ESO Supernova in Garching.

 

There will a show in the planetarium (in German, but headphones with English translation are available), then we will have a guided tour (in English) through the distinctive building that opened earlier this year.

 

The planetarium show will start at 12:30, participants should buy their own tickets (5 Euro/person).

 

The guided tour (most probably sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt foundation) is limited to 25 participants. Since it is usually rather difficult to get into one of these tours, we expect the places to fill up quickly, so the places will be distributed on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis. Please register by December 15th by sending an email to dgh@ph.tum.de .

 

Best wishes,

 

Stefan Recksiegel  and  Lutz Cleemann

27/11/2018 Humboldt-Salon und Jahreshauptversammlung 2018 der Regionalgruppe München

 

Im Rahmen des Humboldt-Salons im internationalen Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ) hielt Prof. Dr. Frank Heidemann (Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) einen Vortrag zum Thema: "Between Maldives and Lakshadweep – Minicoy´s History „in-between“.

 

Inhalte des Vortrages (Englisch):

Minicoy, locally called Maliku, is the most southern island of the Lakshadweep. Once it belonged to the sultanate of the Maldives, and today it marks the south-west maritime boundary of India. The people of Maliku are Muslims and follow matrilineal and matrilocal kinship rules. Most men work internationally as seamen, or - after an early retirement from commercial seafaring - locally as fishermen. They maintain a high reputation in their economic field and never complained about under-employment. As a decisive aspect of their economic success, I would suggest, is the seaman’s ethos. Sailing and fishing appears as the privileged (or even only) way for a young man to come up in life. In songs, proverbs and narratives the ocean appears as a male arena, a space of (or for) working, longing, competition, and (formerly) decapitation. Trade goods, fish and cash, come from the ocean. In the seamen´s perception, there is no dichotomy of land and sea, but rather a continuum of village, coconut-plantation, lagoon, atoll and open sea.

Frank Heidemann is professor for social and cultural anthropology at the University of Munich. His research interests include politics, religion, indigeneity, social aesthetics, visual anthropology and the history of anthropology. Most of his fieldwork was based in South India and Sri Lanka, especially in the Nilgiri Hills, on the Andaman Islands, and more recently on the Lakshadweeps. After his habilitation on politics and religion of the Badaga people (Akka bakka, 2006, Berlin, Lit) he authored an introduction to Ethnology (2013, in German, utb, Vandenhook and Ruprecht), and co-edited „Manifestations of History. Time, Space and Community in the Andaman Islands“ (with P. Zehmisch, Primus 2016), „The Bison and Its Horn. Indigeneity, Performance and the State in South Asia“ (with R. Wolf, Asian Ethnology, 2014) and „The Modern Anthropology of India“ (with Peter Berger, Routledge 2013). On social aesthetics, atmosphere, proximity, and social proprioception he published in Aesthetics (2013 (23, 1,) 49-67) and in A. Grieser’s and J. Johnston’s Aesthetics of Religion (2017 Berlin, De Gruyter, 457-67).

 

Nach dem Vortrag wurde bei Snacks und Getränken (gestiftet von der Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung) intensiv über die Inhalte diskutiert.

 

Im Anschluss fand die Jahreshauptversammlung der Regionalgruppe München statt. Hier wurde Stefan Recksiegel zum 1. Sprecher als Nachfolger von Jörn Kruhl gewählt sowie Lutz Cleemann als 2. Sprecher wiedergewählt. Beide nahmen die Wahl an.

 

Stefan Recksiegel  studierte Theoretische Physik in Bielefeld, Birmingham und Karlsruhe. Während seines Studiums war er aktiv in der europäischen Studentenorganisation AEGEE, deren Ehrenmitglied er ist. Als PostDoc forschte er zwei Jahre mit einem JSPS Fellowship am japanischen Hochenergieforschungszentrum KEK in Tsukuba. Er kam 2003 an die TU München, wo er seit 2006 als akademischer Rat für die IT in Wissenschaft und Lehre verantwortlich ist. Stefan Recksiegel ist seit 2015 Mitglied der DGH.
