Abstract

From the introduction:"In an academic ceremony on June 15, 2006, Lecture Hall J in the main building of the University of Hamburg was named in Magdalene-Schoch-Hörsaal - the fifth name given according to the program launched in 1999 for naming restored lecture halls after scientists from Hamburg who were expelled from the "Third Reich". [...] This issue of Hamburg University Speeches documents the speeches given at the ceremony [....] The subsequent printed original texts by Magdalene Schoch are not legal essays, but two autobiographical writings that were previously difficult or even inaccessible; one authored shortly before the beginning of the "Third Reich", the other, in English, after its end. [...] The collection of texts is supplemented by a documentary explaining the origin of the decision to use Magdalene Schoch's name."

Abstract

The date of May 13, 2011 marked the 100th anniversary of the inauguration of today's main building of the University of Hamburg on Edmund-Siemers-Allee. On the same day, the program begun in 1999 to name its seven lecture halls after outstanding scholars expelled during the Nazi era was completed. This book is therefore being published on these two occasions. In addition to an introduction to the multifaceted history of the building, the volume collects portraits of the seven namesakes of the lecture halls: biographical and werkanalytische approaches to the philosopher Ernst Cassirer, the art historian Erwin Panofsky, the German scholar Agathe Lasch, the mathematician Emil Artin, the lawyer Magdalene Schoch, the international law expert and peace researcher Albrecht Mendelssohn Bartholdy and the social economist Eduard Heimann. Together with the "Stolpersteinen" (Stumbling Stones), which were laid in front of the domed building in 2010, the auditorium appointments form an ensemble through which the main building represents the University of Hamburg in a special way as a central place of remembrance.

Abstract

How can we think of the “aura” of (sacred) contexts and (sacred) works? How to think of individual and collective (esthetic/religious) experiences? What to make of the manipulative dimension of (religious and esthetic) “auratic” experiences? Is the work of art still capable of mediating the experience of the “sacred,” and under what conditions? What is the significance of the “eschatological” dimension of both art and religion (the sense of “ending”)? Can theology offer a way to reaffirm the creative capacities of the human being as something that characterizes the very condition of being human? This Special Issue aspires to contribute to the growing literature on contemporary art and religion, and to explore the new ways of thinking of art and the sacred (in their esthetic, ideological, and institutional dimensions) in the context of contemporary culture.
