Head of Science Department

At the 2020 General Assembly, Brigitte Mazohl, Professor Emeritus of Austrian History at the University of Innsbruck, was elected to the Board for the Science Department (TCI Diploma 2007).

Her most important task at the moment is the preparation and organisation of the Scientific Symposium (20-22 October 2022 at HU-Berlin) on the topic: Ruth C. Cohn (1912-2010) - Life and Work of a Courageous Woman.

In addition, a scientific advisory board has been formed around the department, consisting (so far) of the following members:
Klaus-Gerd Eich, Kristin Fumagalli, Margit Ostertag, Helmut Reichert, Matthias Scharer, Ute Schmitz, Wim Stevens, Walter Zitterbarth, Philipp Rubner.

The following questions will be worked on in the future:

TCI and science

  • How can TCI (re-)connect to current professional and scientific discourses, both in terms of content and language?
  • In which publication organs (outside the journal and community-internal organs) do scientists who work with TCI in their contexts publish?
  • How can TCI be made better known - outside the community and outside fields of activity with an affinity to TCI? In most scientific disciplines, TCI has not arrived as a possibility for didactic and pedagogical mediation, at least not yet.
  • What are the scientific foundations of work with TCI? - Are there empirical accompanying studies that can scientifically substantiate the "added value" of working with TCI?
  • How do we deal with the legacy (and specifically the estate) of Ruth Cohn? What Matthias and Michaela Scharer are currently putting into a systematic order must also be dealt with in terms of thematic content. Who can do this, how and in which "globe"?

Whoever is interested in these topics and would like to collaborate, please get in touch:
