Acquisition of competences in dealing with historical sources and secondary literature on Economic and Social History as well as the ability to present the newly-acquired knowledge in oral or written form; the acquisition of awareness and the use of relevant scientific methods; acquisition of an awareness of the forms of historical self-display and the ability to present historical relationships on-site.

People and societies have always been affected by crises and disasters and had to learn to deal with them.

Crisis is generally understood to be a climax or turning point in a dangerous conflict development in a natural or social system, which was preceded by a massive dysfunction over a certain period of time and which lasted shorter rather than longer. Characteristics of a crisis are the need to act, a feeling of threat, an increase in uncertainty, urgency and time pressure as well as the feeling that the crisis has a formative influence on the future. Every crisis has produced its specific solution, indeed it had to produce this, because it could only be "solved" (be overcome) in a time-related manner. If a crisis cannot be resolved, it turns into a catastrophe ("decline"). Crises can produce innovations. These expand previous principles of action and replace them with other (new) ones.

Disasters are longer lasting and are usually associated with a large-scale loss situation. They cannot be dealt with the existing security measures and therefore require supraregional (or even international) help and additional resources in order to bring them under control.

This introductory seminar is dedicated to this topic from a theoretical and exemplary perspective. Primarily in modern times and contemporary history. Thematically in the areas of social, economic and environmental history.

Input presentations of the teacher, group work, discussion of literature, oral and written presentations.

Course with continuous performance assessment: attendance at all sessions, regular and active participation in discussions, readings and short assignments, oral presentation and written paper.

The standard literature will be announced at the beginning of the proseminar. A special literature review on this topic will be developed in the introductory seminar.
