From ancient time, the human nations have observed patterns in the night sky, which they named constellations. The constellations were useful for the orientation of sailors or for the prediction of seasonal river floodings. Where are we today? This workshop will bring together young scientists from the Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade, the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, the Slavic Institute University of Cologne and the Faculty of Philology of the University of Belgrad to discuss the roles that the sciences and the humanities can play in the formation of civil societies.

Nothing seems to be further from the civil society than the lonely astronomer in a remote observatory. The contacts between artists, writers, philosophers and scientists, however, have played an important role in the development of civil societies. In Serbian history, the friendship between the physicist and engineer Nikola Tesla and the poet Laza Kostić has become an iconic example for this dialogue. This workshop will bring together young scientists from the Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade, The Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, The Slavonic Institute University of Cologne and The Faculty of Philology University of Belgrad to discuss the different roles that the sciences and the humanities can play in the formation of civil societies. Scholars and Students from each university will present examples from history and present astronomy influenced philosophers, musicians, writers, intellectuals. Two keynote presentations will introduce the participants to the research at Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade and the Max Planck Institut highlighting the research skills analyzing philosophical and artistic reception and asking for the possibilities to transfer these skills into social engagement.
