    Kurze Einführung:

    The fourth thematic workshop of the DFG research network “The Failure of Knowledge – Knowledges of Failure” addresses the dynamics of knowledge production within and among social institutions. With sustained challenges from divergent political actors to the ideal of knowledge as rational, objective, and universal, the university as the prime locus of modern knowledge production faces increased pressure to adapt its scholarly protocols and its public mission to the twenty-first century. Members of the research network along with invited speakers will use this meeting to explore how literary and cultural studies can address the entanglement of knowledge and institutions by way of critique, historicization, theorization, and self-reflection regarding the institutional role of the humanities.
