„Staging Files“ is the motto of history and theatre projects at the University of Bremen dealing with controversial topics of Bremen’s history. Students of the history department and actors of the bremer shakespeare company (bsc) have developed and staged play readings from original documents since 2007. The project was initiated and is led by Dr. Eva Schöck-Quinteros (University of Bremen), supported by Sigrid Dauks (University Archive Bremen) and Peter Lüchinger (bsc).
Raising interest in the (natural) sciences among young generations can only be successful if we use channels that they use in their everyday lives, and respond to their changed habits of accessing information. University education and scientific research can thus reach out to secondary school students if it uses the language of their visual and mediatised culture, embraces portable info-communication technologies, and encourges the use of web.2 solutions.
