Unlike most of the existing historiography, it is less interested in the political, diplomatic and technological aspects of European space programs per se, than in the socio-cultural rationale behind the investment of enormous resources. How was outer space represented, communicated and perceived? In what way were changing conceptions in turn affected by the continuous and ongoing exploration of outer space? How did the idea of spaceflight develop into such a central element of the project of Western modernity? In what form did these images and conceptions of outer space, 'other worlds' and the entire cosmos impinge on religion, transcendental beliefs and competing versions of the future? And what was the cultural and societal impact of space exploration and space travel in Europe at large? Analyzing connections between science and fiction from a comparative European perspective, the conference will pay special attention to sites and situations where technologies and images have contributed to the omnipresence of fantasmatic thought. Speakers include numerous distinguished experts such as Profs. Steven J. Dick (NASA), Debbora Battaglia (Mount Holyoke College), Pierre Lagrange (CNRS), Michael J. Neufeld (National Air and Space Museum), Claudia Schmölders (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), James Schwoch (Northwestern University), Helmuth Trischler (Deutsches Museum) and many others. The conference will also feature a special screening of rare historical films compiled by director Jürgen Ast (Berlin) and Space Place. Art in the Age of Orbitization, a curatorial work by Prof. Philip Pocock (ZKM). http://www.geschkult.fu-berlin.de/e/fmi/arbeitsbereiche/ab_nolte/Bielefeld/Hauptseite.html http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/(en)/ZIF/AG/2008/02-06-Geppert.html http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/(en)/ZIF/AG/2008/02-06-Geppert-Programm.pdf«
