Remarks

Admission free - Registration needed In many countries researchers are under pressure. When research generates uncomfortable insights it is often denied and countered with "alternative facts". The research community is denigrated as being part of the establishment, which argues only in its own interest. Experts are scolded, their budgets cut. Not only in the US, where Donald Trump denies the human causes of global warming. "The post-factual national populism that is currently haunting the world could become a threat to our civilization," warns the German climatologist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. What has brought about this crisis of trust? How does the public perceive of science? And what conclusion do scientists have to draw?

Today, various institutional archives at Humboldt-Universität, the BBAW, the German Archaeological Institute and elsewhere, some of which have only recently started to become accessible, document the work of the Prussian and GDR-researchers in Sudan between political and scientific ideals and realities. The Berlin-based research tradition in Sudan and the changes of scientific ‘Zeitgeist’, due to the upheavals of German and international history until the end of the GDR, are the subject of the conference.
