International research conferences at the Villa Vigoni

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) has initiated a programme together with Italian and French partners to support cooperation between researchers in the humanities and social sciences in these three countries. The Research Conferences in the Humanities and Social Sciences of the DFG/Villa Vigoni/Maison des Sciences de l'Homme provide a forum for joint collaboration on various scientific topics. The main aim of this initiative is the formation of networks and long-term research cooperation. Each research conference will therefore include two or three workshops for the participating researchers. The first two funding proposals have already been approved.

The special conditions of cooperation between researchers in the humanities from different countries and linguistic cultures constitute the background for this initiative. The lingua franca of international scientific cooperation is English. For researchers in the engineering and natural sciences, this is a matter of course and poses no problems, since their research is generally of a global nature. However, the humanities and social sciences have strong ties to language and culture, as these are not only the subject of research but also part of the research process itself. It is therefore important to create a framework in which cooperation in these fields of research is also possible in the national languages. The new programme provides an impetus for this. The research conferences, which will generally take place at the Villa Vigoni and are not restricted to researchers from the participating countries, will be held in German, Italian and French.

The first proposals to have been approved envision cooperation over the course of several years with three workshops each. The project "Historical, Artistic and Natural Dimensions of Cultural Landscapes" will focus on an interdisciplinary discussion of the concept of a cultural landscape.
