2019_AoA_logo_500x232

The Institute of Transdisciplinary Discoveries, University of Pécs, in cooperation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Business and Economics and Szentágothai College is again organizing the Arts and Science Conference and Festival, which aim is to recognize and celebrate the culture and research of our university, and to create interactive collaborations beyond sophisticated and intelligent science communication.

The theme of this year’s international conference and art festival – in Hungarian and English language – is the ’Art of Ageing’ just like last year. This is interpreted not only as a biological process, but also as a general and universal process that marks the passing of time.

The conference and festival will be held at several venues in Pécs, including the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Pécs, the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Pécs, the ’Reggeli’, Trezor, 19 Bar & Shop and the ’Reménysugár Kulturális Egyesület’ on the Király street, furthermore the Granary Visitor Centre between October 2-5, 2019.

Art of Ageing – For the Active Elders Workshop

The conference is also an optional vocational training course for health care professionals. Health issues in an old age are discussed in many aspects, e.g. exercise, nutrition, internal medicine, emergency care.

I.                Interdiszciplináris szekció (magyar nyelvű)

Az idő múlása nem csak élettani jelenség, hiszen számos egyéb tudományterület kulcskérdésként kezeli azt vizsgálódásai, kutatásai során. Elég csak a történettudományra gondolnunk, de a mérnöki munka során is  megjelenik az idő múlása az anyagfáradás vagy a formatervezés, stílusok, anyagok változásaiban, energiahatékonyságban. Minden tudományterület szerves része tehát az idő, s a konferencia szekciója éppen ezt, az idő sokszínűségét kívánja körbejárni több tudományterület szempontjából.

FESTIVAL PROGRAMS

Body and soul, morality and human dignity: an evolutionary perspective – Gerhard Medicus, lecturer at University Innsbruck

The evolutionary prerequisites for the development of humaneness were socially friendly behavior patterns originating in early mammals: brood care giving rise to soothing cuddling; later in primate ancestors: social behavior, reciprocal altruism and reconciliation. Friendly behaviors are anchored in emotionally driven dispositions. They were increasingly superimposed cognitively in hominoid ancestors (great apes), specifically through empathy (which enables consolation and social support), as well as through the separate perception of the proprioceptively experienced, bodily “I” and the intellectualized, spiritual “Me”. Beginning with Homo erectus, this was supplemented by an expanded time horizon and emphronesis (Theory of Mind), and along with it guilt and shame, apology and forgiveness. Humans ultimately became moral beings through verbal language, reflection and responsibility. The distinction of body and soul enables humanity and humaneness, but over the course of cultural history this separation gave rise to constraints and conflicts that complicated how we deal with our own selves and with others.

Religion – slow poison or the cure for the soul? – PANEL DISCUSSION

It seems that the practice of traditional religion, the practice of religion in the community, is becoming less and less important in our daily lives, and this role is taken over by the relationship between the individual and God, or even by other non-European ideologies. But is that really the case? Are we losing our faith? To what extent is our modern life compatible with faith and religion? Why can other alternatives be interesting for the European people? Our speaker will try to find and give answers to many similar questions at the event, with the involvement of the audience in an interactive way. Old and new roles of faith and religion, aspects of man’s belonging to the community, let he be believer or non-believer, man as a spiritual and biological being, are all topics that cause us to think again and again. The discussion is public and free but needs pre-registration.

Speaker: Attila Porpáczy, Catholic Pastor, Parish Governor

3-1-2 Meridian Gymnastics

In a healthy person, the vital energy circulates unhindered in the 12 main and the two midline meridians. In a state of illness, the energy gets stuck in the meridian. In order to maintain a healthy state – we know that the biological age of a person is 120 years – we should spend about 20-30 minutes a day doing “3-1-2 ″ meridian exercises to ensure the free flow of energy in our own meridians. What kind of exercises are they? The “3” indicates that we need to acupressure ourselves at three meridian points. The meaning of “1” is about our abdomen: we need to do daily abdominal breathing while lying down or standing. Finally, “2” is a test of the strength of our feet: physical exercise, even squatting on a daily basis is required.

Historic dinner at the Granary Visitor Centre

Franz Joseph, Austrian emperor and Hungarian king visited Pécs several times during his governance. During his stay here on June 23-24, 1891, he enjoyed the famous hospitality of the city, besides his reigning duties, and was able to try the culinary delights offered by Pécs in the Episcopal Palace. The menu of the grandiose meals has subsisted and the Institute of Transdisciplinary Discoveries together with the Granary Visitor Centre undertook to reproduce this event. In the frame of a historic dinner, the original menu will be served including Little sparkling wine, ’Cirfandli’ and ’Barátcsuha’ from Pécs. During the evening, writer and chef Tamás P. Horváth will read the details of the visit of the monarch from his novel published this year (A Zsolnay), followed by live music appropriate to the age and event. The actors of the evening wearing 19th-20th century costume strive to create the atmosphere of the turn of the 20th century, which will be completed with the style of the venue and place setting. The evening will be hosted by Dr. Máté Deák, historian. For more information on the dinner menu and attendance details, please visit our website.

Exhibition in Klimo Library: Literary literacy in Pécs from the beginnings to the 20th century

The Department of Historical Collections of the University of Pécs, like every spring, has compiled a new temporary exhibition, inspired by Professor Imre Nagy’s ’Öttorony’, published in 2013. The volume looks at the history of literary literacy in Pécs from the beginnings to the 20th century. The introduction of the work raises a number of questions about the literary history of a city and its potential for writing. What can we call the literature coming from Pécs? What does ’city’ mean? How should we view the non-literary texts of the city? Is there continuity or discontinuity in the story? Will the regional perspective or the Hungarian context appear more prominently? The exhibition is also warmly recommended by the organizers of the Art of Ageing Conference and Festival.

The exhibition is open from 30th May 2019 to 31st March 2020 under the Klimo Library – Pécs, Szepesy Ignác Street 3.
