“Frankfurt Interdisciplinary Live Debate” to enter the next round

The academic panel discussion continues with a debate on the topic of "Studying, Researching, Teaching Despite the Corona Pandemic"

The panel of the “Frankfurt Interdisciplinary Live Debate” is going to convene for the second time on 21 September 2021 at 18:00 CEST to discuss the topic “Studying, Researching, Teaching Despite the Corona Pandemic”. The digital event is motivated by the observation that the entire education sector has undergone major changes because of the Corona pandemic. Therefore, the panel will address both the benefits and the critical aspects of the digitalization of education and discuss which consequences can be expected for universities, society, and furthermore also for workplaces. 

Originating as a blog post, the “Frankfurt Interdisciplinary Debate” was relaunched as a series of live panel discussions in May 2021. In addition to the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE, the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF), the Research Centre of Goethe University Frankfurt “Normative Orders” and the “Cardio-Pulmonary Institute” (CPI) Cluster of Excellence at the Universities of Frankfurt and Giessen together with the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research are among the founding institutions of the “Frankfurt Debate” blog, which began in 2020. 

Thus, the panel of the “Frankfurt Live Debate” consists of SAFE Director Jan Krahnen, PRIF executive director Nicole Deitelhoff, Stefanie Dimmeler representing the CPI as well as Rainer Forst and Klaus Günther from “Normative Orders”. In this line-up, the disciplines of economics, political science, natural science, law, and philosophy are firmly represented in the debate. The panel comes together at regular intervals to scrutinize the interaction and cohesion of society, business, and politics beyond the acute Corona crisis. German radio journalist Doris Renck will again moderate the second round of debates.
