"Living respectfully, promoting diversity, shaping relations" - with this motto for its campus campaign, Heidelberg University is participating this year in an initiative across the state of Baden-Württemberg. It aims to promote respectful dealings with one another and combat sexualised discrimination and violence at universities. The Equal Opportunities Office will coordinate the activities, which are addressed to the whole university community. They comprise, inter alia, professional development events, lectures and a podcast, along with online tutorials and a questionnaire on the topic.

Music - Feb 5

Early this year saw the launch of the new research centre "Court - Music - City", a cooperative project between the Department of Musicology of Heidelberg University, Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Under the roof of the joint institution, musicologists will explore the question of how courtly and urban music developed in southwest Germany and mutually influenced each other. A central element of activities is, moreover, enhancing university teaching in musicology, e.g. in the field of digital edition. The centre, located in Schwetzingen, is directed by Christiane Wiesenfeldt (Heidelberg) and Panja Mücke (Mannheim).
