News from the Forschungswerkstatt Kritische Geographie in Bonn

**Deutsche Version steht unten**

Dear friends of critical research,

after the exciting and successful  Forschungswerkstatt 2014 in Hamburg, we invite you to the VI. Forschungswerkstatt Kritische Geographie (workshop of critical geography) in Bonn! With this workshop we want to create space for common exchange of knowledge and various forms of working together apart from academic competition and standardized production of knowledge.

The event will take place from June 18 – 21, 2015, at the Ermekeilkaserne in Bonn. The Ermekeilkaserne was seat of the Federal Defense Administration until June 2013. Today, the “Ermekeilinitiative e.V.” promotes the civilian use of the area after over 130 years. Thereby the association wants to create a place that offers space for cultural events and exchange. Since the ground is still part of the Institute for Federal Real Estate, photo IDs have to be passed at the entrance.

The  VI. Forschungswerkstatt Kritische Geographie should maintain the known format and will therefore have a mixed structure of presentations, plenary discussions, workshops, topic streams and events in the evenings. As always, the Kritische Forschungswerkstatt is not only for geographers, but for everyone interested within and outside of the academic spectrum!
