RCC Landhaus Fellowship Program in the News


The Süddeutsche Zeitung published an article about the RCC Landhaus Fellowship Program and the wider scope of an academic project based at Herrmannsdorfer Landwerkstätten, an eco-farm outside Munich. The article was written by former RCC Environmental Studies Certificate Program student Merlin Wassermann.

Wassermann introduces us to the everyday life of 10 scholars from across the world who live and work together in the middle of nowhere, in immediate contiguity to their research subject: the nonhuman world. Geographer and Landhaus Manager Moremi Zeil is convinced that the project has great potential. RCC Director Christof Mauch highlights how at Herrmannsdorfer Landwerkstätten physical and intellectual labor are performed side by side. We also learn about how this “academic lab” fits in with the greater mission of Herrmannsdorfer Landwerkstätten. And yet the project faces an uncertain future.
