Conference Organisers: Sabine Lucia Müller (Berlin), Anja Schwarz (Berlin)
Date, Place: 03.-04.11.2006, Freie Universitaet Berlin
Deadline: 22.05.2006/ 09.10.2006

received similarly augmented interdisciplinary attention, eventually leading
to the concept's academic institutionalisation in a number of countries.
