Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the 1960s, the historian Eric Hobsbawm caused a veritable wave with his book "Bandits": suddenly historical scholarship became interested in the most diverse forms of crime, which always saw itself as an act of rebellion against a property and social order that was perceived as unjust. The spectrum of topics ranged from early modern-era gangs of robbers and the beginnings of the Mafia to domestic poachers. Based on the work of Hobsbawm, the course deals with the category "social rebels" as such, using a wide variety of examples and approaches: What is the relationship between facts, historical source attribution and political projection?

The reading and discussion of a wide variety of texts on the topic will not only bring the participants closer to the field of research itself, but also confront them with the question of how and whether the widespread ideal of scientific impartiality can be realized in practice.

It is expressly pointed out that the weekly workload is above average and this should be taken into account when registering for the course.
