We are looking for courses that cover the whole range of electrical engineering and information technology, chemical and mechanical engineering, ethics and society, as well as courses that cover interdisciplinary topics.
The women’s network Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni and its sister Informatica Feminale are a place to exchange about technical and social developments, which we meet in our every-day life and which are designed by ourselves as technical experts.
The Summer University 2021 wants to give space and time for critical reflections and highly welcomes experimental debates on the relations of technological knowledge and developments in societies. We especially invite teaching offers, which deal with applications of technical know-how in spaces for work and life (for example within care, education, health, food, household, mobility, social networking, publicity, sports, militarization, etc.) from feminist perspectives.
Submissions for courses, panels, workshops, and talks on topics such as gender, equality, technology and ethics are highly welcome.
Teaching languages are German and English.
We invite scientists, to take the summer university as test field for changed teaching formats and to get experience with highly engaged and interested participants. This open situation surprises our new lecturers every year and gives motivation to the teaching at their home universities.
Undergraduate students highly request courses that train basic skills such as experimental work and context skills. Combining theoretical and practical work – especially to deapen knowledge from regular courses – is very interesting for the summer university. Any engineering topics on advanced level and soft skills training are welcome as well!
Joint courses offered by two lecturers have proved their worth during the past summer universities; this can be a chance to promote interdisciplinarity.
Please note: We cannot accept courses that deal with single commercial products. It is recommended to focus on general concepts instead.
Talks, short presentations, and panel discussions
We also welcome talks or suggestions for talks and panel discussions. There is no remuneration for talks. The time blocks for presentations and talks or panel discussions (30 or 60 minutes each; combinations are possible) are not yet fixed. The coordinators welcome suggestions via email.
