Linie 4 - News from the fields of sociology and history
The university, an ivory tower? To bridge the geographical and social distance between the university and the city, in July 2009 BGHS (post)doctoral candidates initiated an open lecture series in which BGHS members present their current research projects to a broad, non-university public. The focus is on the presentation of research results, theoretical and methodological questions are touched on only marginally. The name of this lecture series, Linie 4 (Line 4), is symbolic for bridging the distance between the university and the city, it is the name of the Bielefeld light rail line that connects the two.
