Bremen Guelph Lecture Series

In 2017, the Bremen Guelph Lecture Series was launched. Each semester, a guest lecture takes place alternately in Guelph and Bremen. In summer semester 2017, Jade Ferguson, an Associate Professor at the University of Guelph's College of Arts, kicked off the series with a lecture on the topic “Seeking Sanctuary: Mob Violence, Black Citizenship, and Anti-Lynching Activism in Canada.” In September 2017, Dr. Serge Autexier from the DFKI in Guelph held the second event and introduced the Bremen Ambient Assisted Living Lab.
