Education & Training

The Institute offers seminars introducing participants to the methodology of Objective Hermeneutics or helping them improve their methodological skills. We ask participants to bring along material relevant in their work. We then analyze this material (including interviews, letters, publications, photographs, family data including genealogies etc.) in the seminar. This means that any workshop will focus on the participants' questions and problems. Interpretations and possible solutions are developed from the material at hand, not "from the methodological top down." Methodological background is provided as we go along, but the focus is on learning how to use the approach and to explicate latent assumptions in the material at hand. Courses are currently offered for scholars in the humanities and in the social sciences as well as to practicioners in various fields including social work. We are regularly teaching week-long seminars in Frankfurt on key topics in the social sciences and in cultural studies. These seminars are part of our degree program in Objective Hermeneutics.

We offer seminars/workshops in English upon request. Please contact us for details.

More info available in German.
