§ JurLecture

As part of the department's internationalization strategy, one of the key objectives is to further advance the internationalization of science.

For this purpose, the lecture series § JurLecture has been developed by the International Affairs/German as a Foreign Language team. What sets this lecture series apart is that all lectures are given by international guest researchers themselves. The aim is to make the expertise of these guest researchers accessible to other faculty members and the interested public, to provide a foundation for broader discourse.

Moreover, § JurLecture is also intended to provide a platform for the presenting guest researchers to extend their visibility beyond their hosting department and engage in further discussion.
