Martin Rempe joins global dis:connect

A warm welcome to our new fellow Martin Rempe who joins the Kolleg until autumn.

Martin studies modern German, European and African history, particularly the social history of cultural work as well as the history of colonialism, decolonisation and development. Transnational and global perspectives are at the heart of his research. Martin’s career path has led him through stints in Berlin, Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Freiburg, Paris and Konstanz.   At global dis:connect, he is examining the role and significance of the military in civic musical life during the long 19th century from a global perspective. From the French Revolution to the First World War, military music shaped how music has come to be consumed, produced, appreciated and practised worldwide. Indeed, it has profoundly marked how we continue to valorise culture, and it propagated European music formations in distant geographies. Combining processes of rupture and continuity, displacement and integration, dis:connectivity is a key concept in grasping how military music has helped to (trans)form our world.

Enis Maci joins global dis:connect

A warm welcome to our new fellow Enis Maci who just joined the Kolleg for two fellow stints, one in winter/spring and one in summer 2022.

Enis  is one of Europe’s most striking polyartists. Her plays Lebendfallen, Mitwisser and Autos have appeared at the Schauspielhaus in Vienna and the Schauspiel in Leipzig, and she has served as the playwright-in-residence at the Nationaltheater in Mannheim. Her essay collection, Eiscafé Europa, debuted to widespread acclaim at the 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair.   While at global dis:connect, Enis works on Habitat – an exploration of mythologies of information, their global dissemination and the esoteric, yet tangible ways in which contentious narratives touch upon concrete bodies and subjectivities.
