Hamburg, crime and geodata.

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Re-settling in Hamburg and getting started into a new research job took eat up too much of my time to let me post here for a while. But the news are good: I have a half-year full position in a research project at Hamburg University’s Institute for Social Scientific Criminological Research. The project on which I am working has been designed by Jan Wehrheim and Susanne Krasmann, and it is funded by the Thyssen Foundation. The name of the project is Geodata, Policing and Urban Development. I hope that I’ll have the time to post some more info on the project itself and what we are doing. Until then I am happy to be working with great new colleagues, living close to friends and family, and spending the summer in Hamburg.

Gegen die Wand und mitten rein.

Bis vor kurzem gehörte ich ja auch noch zu den Leuten, die Gegen die Wand noch nicht gesehen haben, obwohl dieser Film ja bekanntlich gut sein soll und den Publikumspreis bei der Berlinale gewonnen hat. Alles Lob zu recht. Habe den Film in einem kleinen Kinosaal in Darmstadt gesehen, aber das hat diesem Film keinen Abbruch getan – trotz schneller, manchmal fast Videocliphaft anmutender Schnitte kommt kein Viva oder MTV Gefühl auf. Der Film ist sehr intensiv; Darsteller, Dialoge und Kamera erzeugen eine stimmige, starke Atmosphäre. Der Soundtrack ist ebenfalls sehr gut – ich warte schon gespannt darauf, in Dörtes Kopie noch einmal rein zu lauschen. Dieser Film ist so, wie Reality Bites gerne gewesen wäre. Ach ja: der Film spielt zu einem großen Teil in Hamburg.

Been busy, having visitors.

Last week I had a presentation at the post-grad college (which went reasonably well, as I might discuss in more detail in another post), over the weekend I’ve been in Hamburg, and yesterday I came back together with my mom, whose Windows machine I am currently de-sassering… Soon!

Elk eggs.

Thursday, April 1st, 2004

I won’t be posting much for the next ten days or so. Going for a trip to Sweden, and after that Kerstin and I will spend a few days in the vicinity of Hamburg, collecting easter eggs, watching handball matches, stuffing our bellies, saunaing, and perhaps visiting the Wildpark Schwarze Berge. What an excellent prospect!
