In the winter semester 2011/12, the Excellence Cluster Languages of Emotion, together with the Institute of Philosophy, held the lecture series "Languages of Emotion: Language, Culture, Society." In the individual lectures research results from the projects within the cluster were presented to the general public. The lecture series was recorded by the CeDiS AV team and published on the websites of the university.

Recordings of lecture series can also be used in university courses, for example as a starting point for discussions taking place face-to-face or within an online forum. Helpful here is to supply guidelines or questions that the students can work on and debate when discussing. The students can, for example, independently create and work on a wiki focusing on a select topic of the lecture series.
