|KennedyDebates -- A debates series at the John-F.-Kennedy institute.|
Public debates on current issues: a student initiative to create a platform of dialogue between the public, students and academia. Combining a culture of public debate with a cross-disciplinary learning philosophy, the “Kennedy Debates” project aims to broaden the scope of what a lecture can do: journalists, politicians, academics international and domestic take sides on different theses on contemporary political development, blending the spheres of academic discourse and public concern. A fixed debate format invites guests to present their ideas with rhetorical efficiency: limited speaking times and active audience involvement create an environment of accentuated dialogue – an arena of respectful competition. By experimenting with new rules to the game of academic interaction, “Kennedy Debates” wishes to add to a spirit of perpetual discourse at the Freie Universität Berlin.
