Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear Students!

As Rector of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, I bid you a very warm welcome. Salzburg, because of its beautiful scenery, many historical sites and the Festival, is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the world. And Salzburg is a university town with a long tradition. The University of Salzburg was founded by Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron, the namesake of the University, in 1622. Today it consists of four faculties, with approximately 18,000 students and 2,800 employees. It is a centre for innovative research and is firmly integrated into the cultural and economic life of Salzburg. With its national and international networking, it is a modern knowledge hub in the heart of Europe. We can be proud of this university, which seamlessly embeds itself with its architecturally interesting buildings in the beautiful ambience of this city. The University of Salzburg offers students a broad range of courses with a balanced ratio of teachers to students. The positioning of the University of Salzburg for a secure future is particularly close to my heart. It has set itself clear research priorities, created a development plan for the future, and today is characterized by constantly developing and meeting new challenges.

Sincerely,

Heinrich Schmidinger, Rector of the University of Salzburg and Chairman of the Austrian Universities

    Political education has been a general teaching principle in Austria since 1978, that is, an educational and developmental task, which is the responsibility of the teachers of all school subjects and grades. The lecture series will show ways in which democracy education can work in different subjects, so that student teachers and educators have different perspectives on the same fundamental challenge.
    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and, vice versa, the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective. This approach corresponds with the extension of the concept of music, as well as the questioning of performance traditions in the context of New Music, which also puts a stronger emphasis on the body.
    The relatively young democracy of Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore. Politically critical leaders of representative cultural organisations have been, and continue to be, replaced by the new administration, while independent creative artists appear to be able to find niches that so far or already live outside the country.
    The conference will take place from 29 November – 1 December, 2018, at the Unipark Nonntal.
