The ABC of the BGHS - Door opener into the world of sociology and history
Striking letters between the buildings of the University of Bielefeld have triggered a great riddle in recent weeks: What do they mean, who is behind them and what do restored doors have to do with the BGHS?
Now the university is unveiling the secret behind the project, which was developed by Thomas Abel to provide insights into the worlds of sociology and history. Each letter stands for a doctoral project by BGHS PhD students. Aanor Roland's letter "N", for example, stands for the term "Not", Marcus Carrier got the "Z" as in "Zeuge".
Thomas, Aanor and Marcus explain exactly what this means here:
