CRC 1265 “Journalist in Residence” Program

With this new program, the CRC 1265 offers journalists interested in spatial changes and conflicts the opportunity to spend four weeks at our center as a “Journalist in Residence”. During this time, the “Journalist in Residence” will be able to exchange ideas with our researchers and to gain insight into the research of the CRC 1265. The residency provides time and space for journalists to deepen their knowledge, to familiarize themselves with new topics, or to work on their own thematically related projects in a collaborative exchange.

With this program we aim to promote the exchange between journalists and researchers of the CRC 1265. Through daily contact with the researchers, the journalists will gain a better understanding of how interdisciplinary research is conducted, and our researchers will in turn gain an insight into journalistic work.

The program is open for applications on an annual basis.

Céline Lauer, urban anthropologist and science editor at WELT/WELT am Sonntag, was the first journalist to be a guest at the CRC 1265 in June 2023. During her stay, she initiated the blog series “Nachgefragt” in which CRC members provide insights into their research and findings.
