The kick-off event of the Forum Berlin. Politics and Academia in Dialogue will be the conference 1989-2009: Remembering for the Future, to be held on 19/20 February 2009. Contemporary witnesses, policy-makers and scholars from academic institutions and think tanks will debate the significance of the watershed year 1989 for current and future political events worldwide. The fact is: the world-shattering fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of a divided Europe and at the same time heralded the rise of new global dangers and challenges that can only be mastered globally.

TEN YEARS OF 9/11
POLITICS, LANGUAGE, IMAGES IN THE 21ST CENTURY
28.05.2011 - 29.05.2011
Unfolding before the eyes of the world public, captured in a flood of iconic images, and shown on television thousands of times, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 marked a global caesura with far-reaching consequences.
Ten years after 9/11, the debates in the series “Forum Berlin” provide an opportunity to discuss the effects of these pivotal events on the present and future. To what extent did 9/11 bring about a change in our perception of the world, and to what degree did it alter political thinking and action as well as the codes of language and images by which we access current realities of world politics and society?
How has political terminology changed, and in what categories of security are counterterrorist measures, not to mention those of “classical” security policy, communicated and legitimized? Must we ascribe a new significance to the factor of religion, or even speak of a “return of the religious” in world politics and society?
In international and interdisciplinary panels, political scientists, cultural scholars, politicians and media experts will discuss the consequences of 9/11 for the volatile interplay of politics, language and images in the twenty-first century.
An event by Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Forum Transregionale Studien and Stiftung Zukunft Berlin.
