The lecture Star Wars im Alltag (Star Wars in everyday life) describes how Star Wars films have crept into all corners of modern everyday life: in film and television, in speeches, products, headlines the lightsaber, the film heroes from Vader to Yoda or the farewell “May the Force be with you” have long since become part of the world’s cultural heritage and appear everywhere. The lecture detectively uncovers these traces – no matter how small they may be. Traces of Star Wars are presented briefly and above all entertainingly in pictures, video and anecdotes, from the loving references to the audacious freeloading. Always with a wink. And there are always surprising finds – or who would have thought that traces of Star Wars could even be found on the socks of a prime minister or in police reports?
