Recent Events & Projects

The great diversity in its subjects at the Faculty of Arts offers a wide range of possibilities to get involved in every facet of the discussion on diversity with engagement and scientific curiosity. Since a long time many players of the faculty have already carried out numerous projects in response to the discussion on diversity. Here we have formed a platform to make all relevant projects more visible.

Consortium Diversity

In projects, workshops and actions members of the consortium diversity seeks to combine various types of discussions on diversity within university institutions, among academica disciplines, but also via the cooperation with the city of Bonn. With interviews, questionaires  and public lectures we would like to work together with those who live and work here. We are willing to discuss, ponder and also change.

To provide impetus and set up sustainable structures - however, we only perceive great potential as well as prospects in collaboration with students and citizens of Bonn.

Projects of the Consortium Diversity

Diversity & ... mini series on diversity at the University of Bonn and in your city, on role models, vision and the future.

This mini series are considered a networking project between the University of Bonn and the city of Bonn. With interviews, podcasts and short clips we are willing to provide various concepts with regard to the discussion on diversity and consequently make these concepts more visible to the public. Diversity & education, diversity & politics, diversity & social engagement, diversity & world view... just a handful of aspects which we would like address.

Begin: winter semester 2021/22

If you would like to work together with us, please first contact Julia Krings.

Open air cinema in summer

In summer 2022, within a week we show each eventing a short film or a musical clip which lasts one hour and touches upon an unique theme. Within one hour transcultural variety, gender, social origin or sexual identity will be chosen as a central theme from famous or less famous scenes. In the end, there is time for open discussion.

Begin: summer semester 2022

In certain universities there are already certificates for gender or diversity. Currently we are developing a concept to ensure the acquisition of a certificate at the University of Bonn, which is started, however, at another university before students switch to Bonn.

Status: under construction.

The dean's office of the Faculty of Arts finances projects which centres on the topic of diversity. What can be financed is research project, teaching assignment or initiative. More enquiries on application for the financial support of different projects, please contact Julia Krings.

Academic Disciplines

The faculty unites eleven institutes, under whose umbrella organisations various academic disciplines are connected. The subjects negotiate with the topic of diversity in diverse contexts: in the form of workshops to further training, lecture series or initiatives in teaching and study, there are various events and activities, in which you can actively participate.
