friedrich – FAU’s research magazine
friedrich 120: Astounding journeys
Some of you may know the poem by the American poet Robert Frost: ‘Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference.’ Each day of our lives we have to decide which roads to follow. Some are so familiar to us we can follow them in our sleep. However, we are often overcome by curiosity and seek out new, perhaps even risky paths on our journey. This is particularly true in academia. Researchers are always searching for new ways to find solutions to the major questions facing our society.
The topic of ‘pathways’ for this edition of friedrich is an obvious choice. We take a closer look at different pathways in various contexts, for example, why and how are people on the move? To be on the move can also be taken more literally, something we tend to neglect in today’s sedentary lifestyle. What changes can we make in this respect? And how are detours or workarounds created? As you can see, this edition of friedrich is branching out down various avenues.
I hope you enjoy reading it.
