ALMA Research Series in summer term 2021

24. June 2021 - 12:30

In 2016, the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute (ABI) has launched the ALMA research series in cooperation with Freiburg University. The research series aims at interconnecting research interests from different parts of the university and affiliated institutes. ALMA places particular emphasis on interdisciplinarity: a feature that is also evident in the discussion format, which includes presenters and discussants from different disciplinary backgrounds. The overall focus lies on empirical-comparative analyses of socio-political phenomena in extra-European areas and societies. The main target group of the ALMA series includes social sciences and humanities scholars that are currently pursuing a PhD and/or pursuing advanced/postdoctoral research projects.

The ALMA Research Series thus benefits from exchange and discussion among many. In view of the current circumstances we are moving the series to a digital room, although this is not our preferred option.

The lectures take place on Thursdays from 12.30 pm to 2 pm CEST via zoom - four times during term. Please register (name, first name, email address; at the bottom). You will receive a zoom link for participation.
