#Wiederbrennen Movement (in German)

UNS REICHT’S
Keine Uni ohne uns Studierende!

Zehn Jahre nach #unibrennt herrschen an unseren Universitäten nach wie vor unwürdige Zustände.

ÖVP und die Grünen entscheiden gerade am Verhandlungstisch über die zukünftige Hochschulpolitik. Dabei steht völlig offen, ob sich der verfehlte Kurs der letzen Jahrzehnte fortsetzt, oder die notwendige Veränderung hin zu offenen, freien und gerechteren Hochschulen gelingt.

Wir fordern:
– Die Erhöhung des Hochschulbudgets auf mind. 2% des BIP.
– Den offenen und freien Hochschulzugang.
– Recht auf Räume für uns Studierende.
– Eine Verbesserung der sozialen Situation von Studierenden.
– Echte Mitsprache für die Studierendenvertretungen.
– Bildung statt Ausbildung.
– Bessere Bedingungen für das gesamte Hochschulpersonal.
– Klimagerechte Hochschulen.
– Bildung als Schwerpunkt in der neuen Regierung.

Am Dienstag 10.12. um 14:30 versammeln wir uns vor dem TU Hauptgebäude, um gemeinsam und solidarisch ein Zeichen zu setzen.

Es geht um Freie Bildung. Es geht um Chancengleichheit. Es geht um uns Alle!

Werden wir aktiv. Zwingen wir die Politik zu handeln!
Es ist Zeit, dass wir #wiederbrennen

Info & registration

No one is indifferent to US President Donald Trump political policies: be it foreign policy, global economic or migration policy. With one year to go before the US presidential election, what are the consequences of Trumps policies for the Americans? How has the social and labor market situation changed under Trump? How is the working population? What role does the trade union play in the US? What are the chances for the Democrats?

A public discussion with Stuart Appelbaum, President, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), Vice President of the American Federation of Trade Unions (AFL-CIO).

Welcome introduction: Wolfgang Katzian, ÖGB President

Moderation: Sophia Reisecker, GPA-djp international secretary

Questions from the audience are welcome! Simultaneous interpretation will be provided into German and English.

 

Afterwards you will be invited to a small snack.

“Pericles, Prince of Tyre”, Shakespeare (Zamec Valtice, Czech Republic)

Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a Shakespearean epic —an exciting and exotic adventure of mystery, marvels, and mayhem— now brought to life in this bold new production. Having discovered a dark secret in the court of Antiochus, Pericles is forced to wander a world filled with captivating characters. It’s an odyssey of life and death, morality and depravity, civility and barbarity, and, most of all, of the everlasting endurance of love. 

Idle Discourse brings you one of the Bard’s grandest tales with irreverence, humour, and maybe just a little bit of silliness. An energetic and accessible interpretation of the play, expect remarkable English-language Shakespearean storytelling at its most evocative! 

Valtice’s theatre dates back to 1790. After falling to ruin following the war, in 2015 the venue was painstakingly restored to its original state, utilising the original layout and recreating the working stage machinery. The venue is an incredible authentic space in which to watch one of Shakespeare’s great epics. The site is around an hour’s drive from Vienna.

When: September 5-7 at 4pm.

Where: Zámek 1, 691 42 Valtice, Czech Republic

Dear students,

We hope that you’ve had a great start into the new semester and you are all satisfied with your courses and lectures. We have some great news and we want to share them with you! Since the weather outside is warm and sunny again, we’ve been feeling creative and more inspired than ever. The next big thing that we are organizing is a journalistic workshop. So, if you’ve always wanted to get a peek behind the curtains of how a magazine works and get first-hand knowledge on writing articles from real pros, we have just the thing for you.

The STV English and American Studies (your trusty student reps) and METROPOLE, the one of a kind Vienna English-speaking magazine (maybe you’ve seen their latest issue at our breakfast), are coming together to organize the first writing workshop for students from the English department.

Where & When?

The workshop will take place at the department on the April 3rd, between 13:00 and 16:00 and will include a short trip to the METROPOLE editorial office.

How to take part?

Since the places are limited, in order to take part, you have to sign up for the sweepstake and send an email to the stv.anglistik@univie.ac.at. Please include your two names and degree program.

Signing up takes place until March 28th and you will be informed via email if you have been chosen.

Good luck!
