A great joy of visiting other universities is reading their wall junk. (Mine has little wall junk, preferring table litter.) At LMU Munich, there are numerous ads for rooms in shared apartments (Wohngruppe, WGs) and for human experiment subjects. Psychology students are required to serve a certain number of hours as test subjects themselves, so the ads offer for example “one test hour credit and sweeties” instead of the usual token payments or movie tickets. It’s one way to naturalize the doing of social science, which here seems to be so touchy that we are reduced to autoethnography and Twitter studies.
