Colloquium: New Philologies
Department of English
The sixth number of Colloquium (Volume 4, Issue 1): Special Issue „Wissenstransfer in den Geistes-, Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften. Theorie, Forschungsfelder und konkrete Anwendungen“ (2019).
Co-edited by Markus Hayden and Mareen Hauke.
The word colloquium is interpreted as “discussion, interview, meeting, parley, conversation”, and these terms already contain the essence of what this journal is about: We would like to provide a multilingual (virtual) space for academic voices from different backgrounds to encounter each other, exchange ideas and experiences, negotiate theories and critical approaches in a process of communication and transformation that extends beyond the immediate participants, and that reverberates in the groups and societies that form its context. As an Open Access journal, Colloquium: New Philologies is freely available to everyone, and this is also to be understood as a statement inviting and supporting a concept of open, participatory, and free science transcending the limits of disciplines, cultures, and languages.
