[A Homage to
Stefan George]

George

The "Loreley Valley - Diaspora College (LV-DC) was firstly initiated as part of a subordination separate diaspora project under the Pasai Institute for Advanced Study (PIAS) on August 30th, 2016 by universal historian, Schumpeterian Economist, Kantian polemologist & phenomenologist Mai Dar (Marburg University). The LV-DC could be regarded as a homage to a prominent poet and writer Stefan George (1868-1933).
The Secret Dictum of Stefan George: "Doch unser aller heimat bleibt das licht, Zu dem wir kehren auf gewundnen stegen." (Jahr der Seele)
Translation: "But all our homes remain the light, To which we return on wounds." (Year of the soul).
For the supporters of this "special diaspora college" in Bingen (in the land of "Hildergardis", the birthplace of Stefan George), this homage is quite relevant, because they found that Stefan George was "a true representative son of academic freedom, a lover of multicultural entity with tolerance principle and practice. George manifested his visionary freedom experiences not only in his creative works, but he was a harsh critic of the then modern era." George was thought of by his contemporaries as a "prophet and a priest", while he thought of himself as a messiah of a new kingdom that would be led by intellectual or artistic elites, bonded by their faithfulness to a strong leader. (Wikipedia). This "short-term academic program" is designed not only for academies and professionals, but also for all type of participants, who intend to share the above valuable spirit of George's intellectual visions of "The New Empire" (Das neue Reich) in 1928, to explore or to experience more deeper about the fluvial world heritage realities, comparative regional developments, global mutual influences or tendencies, etc. The LV-DC takes place regularly not only in the Loreley Valley, but also in selected international consortium campuses, such as in Near East, Middle East & South East Asia and other priority areas between the Baltics & Eastern Europe or between Eurasia & Austronesia, etc.
