Die Stadt von morgen
What will it look like, the city of tomorrow? This is the question the authors of the new volume of the lecture series Studium Generale at the University of Heidelberg ask themselves. Representatives of different disciplines such as architecture and literature, geography and health, anthropology and planning, as well as environmental science and energy contribute to an exchange about a city by people for people.
Islamische Selbstbilder: Festschrift für Susanne Enderwitz
Going beyond the framework of a mere “Festschrift” in cumulative terms, this newly published volume aims at contributing to recent discussions in the subject area of Middle Eastern studies focusing on individual and autobiographical voices discernible in pre-modern and contemporary Muslim societies. This approach reflects Prof Susanne Enderwitz’ seminal works on the topics of autobiography/autofiction and Islamicate expressions of identity.
Mensch und Maschine
Hand prostheses that are controlled by thoughts or cars that travel without a driver - is the machine replacing the human being? What makes the two different, where they learn from each other and how they can complement each other is shown by 16 articles written by 24 scientists from the University of Heidelberg in the research magazine "Ruperto Carola" on the key topic of MACHINE & HUMAN.

Entwicklung – Wie aus Prozessen Strukturen werden
Developmental processes on a small scale (cell growth) and on a large scale (from the big bang to the universe) that lead to discoverable structures: Astonishing developments can be seen in many areas! Be it hypotheses about the coming into being of the Old Testament, the emergence of all life on this planet from a primordial cell, the development of cancer or the formation of human character in the course of ontogenesis. The Corona pandemic also shows a typical developmental course. These topics are examined from the colourful perspective of a comprehensive university in this newly published volume of the "Heidelberger Jahrbücher Online", edited by Joachim Funke and Michael Wink.
Zur Negation im Gegenwartsdeutschen und im Modernen Hocharabisch. Eine linguistisch-kontrastive Untersuchung

She uses the two novels "Sommerstück" by Christa Wolf and "Bayna al-Qasrayn" (Engl. "Between the Palaces") by Naǧib Maḥfūẓ as a data basis for this.
