Das Hochschulwesen – seine Rolle und Zukunft. Europäische und polnische Erfahrungen. Polnisch-deutsche Konferenz

Krakau, 1. Juni 2016. Europäische Tischner-Hochschule Krakau, ul. Westerplatte 11

Weltweit muss sich das Hochschulwesen nicht nur mit Herausforderungen der gegenwärtigen wissensbasierten Wirtschaft, sondern auch mit einer neuen Generation von Studenten, die eine Welt ohne Internet gar nicht mehr kennt, auseinandersetzen. Zu diesen Herausforderungen kommen der demographische Wandel und die Entwicklung der Informationstechnologie erschwerend hinzu. Daher bedarf es grundlegender Überlegungen zu den Tätigkeitsbereichen des Hochschulwesens und zu der Rolle, die die Hochschulen in unserem Land und der Gesellschaft einnehmen sollen.  

Im Zuge dessen ergeben sich Fragen, wie die Anforderungen und Vorschriften, die von politischen und gesellschaftlichen Vertretern an die Hochschulen gestellt werden, bewältigt werden können. Wie wird man den verschiedenen Ansprüchen, „Antrieb der Wirtschaft“, „Quelle des Wissens“ und zugleich „Schmiede zukünftiger gesellschaftlicher Führungsriegen“ zu sein, gerecht? Eine weitere entscheidende Frage ist, wie die Hilfe für Hochschulen im Transformationsprozess auszusehen hat. Wo befindet sich die goldene Mitte im Reformprozess zwischen der Umsetzung administrativer Regulierungen von oben und der Anerkennung und Wertschätzung der Selbstständigkeit der Hochschulen sowie der eigenständigen Anpassung an die sich verändernden ökonomischen Bedingungen? Letztlich stellt sich die Frage, wie das zukünftige „Ökosystem“ der Bildung an Hochschulen aussehen soll – wie verteilen sich die Aufgaben unter den öffentlichen und privaten Schulen bezüglich akademischer und praktischer Studienrichtungen, wie in technischen, geisteswissenschaftlichen bzw. künstlerischen Hochschulen?

"Poland – Germany – China. Two separate models for international relations" Conference

The Tischner European University together with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation are happy to invite you to participate in a conference Poland – Germany – China. Two separate models for international relations that will take place in the TEU assembly hall on May 18th 2015.

baner WSE 01

In the last few years the economic relations between China and Germany have rapidly developed, and become politically active. Both export-centred countries have grown over the years, and became the strategic economic partners of one another. Germany developed into the largest Chinese associate in Europe, and at the same time China increased its economic significance for Germany in Asia. The Middle Kingdom is the third partner worldwide for Poland's Western neighbour in terms of trade exchange. This strong economic relationship is accompanied by a lively political dialogue. At the same time, in the background of these Sino-German relations, a new bond is forged — one between Poland and China. Will these new relations be similar to the showcase ones between China and Germany, or rather will the future hold a different scenario for Poles — one with separate international relations in terms of economy and politics? What tried-and-tested mechanisms from the Sino-German dialogue may be used by Poland? Should Poles try to standardize the political relations with China for the entire European Union?

The conference will be divided into two panel discussions:

  • China as a political partner for Germany and Poland — joint or individual attitude towards the growing economic presence of China in Europe and worldwide?
  • Current German-Chinese and Chinese-Polish economic relations — are these two models set in stone for the future?

"Transparency and Trust" Conference

The Language, Culture and Politics Association is happy to announce the 7th Edition of the
Language, Culture and Politics Conference

LCP 2015 Call for Papers: Transparency and Trust
May 28 – 29th 2015
Tischner European University
ul. Westerplatte 11, Kraków, Poland

The Language, Culture and Politics Association is happy to invite all scholars and students to submit their proposals to the 7th Edition of the Language, Culture and Politics International Annual Conference. This year, we would like to address the issue of ‘Transparency and Trust.’ As prerequisites of effective communication and organizational management, transparency is often understood as the clarity and coherence in intention, speech and act. It is commonly seen in the context of information access and good governance as a crucial element for building trust and thus sustaining collaboration and progress. In this age of Web 2.0 characterized by the influx of interactive participatory tools and social media, transparency is often taken as a given for sustaining trust and safety, as is best testified by Google’s Transparency Transparency Report of 2013. And yet, is transparency truly indispensible for building social trust?  Or is it not rather an inversely related to trust – the more trust, the less the need for transparency?

All who are interested are requested to submit an abstract of 200 words to Clarinda Calma by January 15th 2015 at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Notifications of acceptance shall be announced by February 15th 2015. The conference fee is 60 EUR for professionals and 24 EUR for students. 

The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars and students of linguistics, sociology, culture and political communication.  Areas of interest include (but are not confined to):

  • Mass Communication, Media Studies and Political Communication, Advertising, Public Relations, Visual Communication
  • Linguistics, Language Acquisition, Teaching of Foreign Languages (including Technology in the classroom), Translation Studies
  • Film, Literature and the Arts
