Depth hermeneutics is a qualitative method that aims at the latent content of the material to be studied (texts, films, interviews…). These unconscious “scenes” merely shimmer through “between the lines”, but affectively speak to the interpreters involuntarily and can be developed through an analysis of these reactions. The aim of the working group will be to make spontaneous feelings and associations usable for an interpretation of the material. Previous knowledge of depth hermeneutics is not a prerequisite for participation.
