Jenaer Freundschaftsturnier vom 18.-20. Mai / Neue Punkte für die FDL zu gewinnen

Die Debattiergesellschaft verhält sich schon in ihrem jugendlichen Alter von 10 Jahren wie eine adlige grande dame der Pariser Kunstszene: Sie ist eine rege Gastgeberin von mal größeren, mal kleineren Turnieren: Sie hat nicht nur zahlreiche ZEIT DEBATTEN und Regionalmeisterschaften für den VDCH ausgerichtet, sondern begrüßt alljährlich ihre Gäste zu einem Freundschaftsturnier. Diese Tradition ist Teil des Jenaer Selbstverständnisses: Als Debattierclub aktiv zu sein heißt nicht nur regelmäßig im Club zu debattieren, öffentliche Debatten abzuhalten und auf Debattierturniere zu fahren, sondern auch, selbst zu solchen Debattiergesellschaften einzuladen. Das Jenaer Freundschaftsturnier ist, verglichen mit den großen Events der ZEIT DEBATTEN und den ...

Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV

Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV Paris is very, very beautiful. Plus, it is the political, economic and social center of the French nation. It is de facto impossible to get the full impression in just one weekend. But the convenors of Louisa Leila Zhang’s team helped us get a good first glimpse on the first weekend of April. The about 150 participants of the Paris IV were offered hospitality and French cuisine, impressive technology and the art of partying plus a city tour – and all that in just under 45 hours. The debaters – from the Wordls finalist John Ashbourne from the London School ...

Nofretete is going to stay in Berlin – Second masters’ debate of BDU

Egyptian queen in the German capital - The motion of the second masters’ debate of Berlin Debating Union (BDU) was especially directed to a Berlin audience: "Who is owning Nefertiti? This house would give the bust of Nofretete back to Egypt!" Georg Sommerfeld and Johannes Häger (Opening Government) talked about the rude and somehow illegal methods that were used to bring the bust to Germany in 1913. They also explained that Nefertiti is an important symbol for the Egyptian history and identity and so would belong to Cairo. Juliane Mendelsohn and Niels Schröter (Opening Opposition) disagreed. Nefertiti's bust has been exhumed ...

Controversial Masters’ Debate in Berlin

Reaching a broad public, debating controversial social topics, provoke thoughts – that’s the idea behind the Masters’ Debate. In this way the Berlin Debating Union (BDU) wants to perform its sociopolitical role. Furthermore the members of BDU want to show what is possible in a really good debate and that even difficult, controversial and contra intuitive motions can be discussed in a reasonable, ambitious and entertaining way. So early December's motion was a heavy one: “This house would allow disabled parents (in countries where pre-implantation diagnostics are allowed) to choose embryos with the same disability.” The Opening Government with Annette Kirste and ...

Zu Gast beim Deutschen Meister: Punk der “Machdeburjer Orjinale”

Trotz zahlreicher, frohlockender Demonstrationen, Kundgebungen und Volksfeste im Nordosten der Republik pilgerten am 1. Mai rund 50 Debattier- und Jurierwillige zu einem Punk-Turnier nach Magdeburg. Nicht nur die Raumbezeichnungen, sondern auch das gesamte Motto dieses Punks beim amtierenden Deutschen Meister, dem Debattierclub Magdeburg, sollten unter dem Stern "Machdeburjer Orjinale" stehen. Chefjuriert wurde es dennoch Nicht-Magdeburger Originalen, nämlich von Patrick Ehmann (Berlin), Jonas Werner (Magdeburg, ehemals Berlin) und Marcel Giersdorf (Mainz). Die zeitig angereisten 20 Teams aus der, nach Patrick Ehmann, "stärksten Region in der Ausrichtung von Punk-Turnieren" debattierten in den ersten zwei Vorrunden ...

Die Presse berichtet, die Clubs erzählen. Hier schon ein paar Stimmen zu den VDCH-Regionalmeisterschaften 2010. "Der Westen", das Internetportal der WAZ-Mediengruppe, berichtet über die Westdeutsche Meisterschaft (WDM) und das Debattieren an sich. Der Journalist Thomas Mader hat sich bei der WDM eine Vorrunde angeschaut. In dem Artikel "Reden ist Gold bei der Debattiermeisterschaft" schreibt er: "Das sind merkwürdige Studenten, hier an der Dortmunder Uni: Sie siezen sich und sagen Sachen wie: 'Aber mein Herr ... Sie haben doch gerade ausgeführt … Ist es nicht so … da fehlen mir die Worte …' Man achte auf ihre rechte Hand, wie sie in bester ...
