“Lecture Series Well Received”

The “Looking Back – Looking Forward. A Foray into 50 Years of the University of Bremen” lecture series is being organized by the History Department (Modern and Contemporary History) in cooperation with the University of Bremen Archive. It focuses on the history of the former reform university against its social and political background. While some talks focus on the 1970s era, others trace their themes into the present and future. There are a total of 12 events. Due to the situation surrounding corona, most of the lectures took place digitally in the summer and winter semester. The others were held at the House of Science in the city. “We are extremely pleased that the lecture series has been so well received. We have shed light on various aspects of the history and present situation of the university and thus reached out to very different target and age groups,” summarizes co-organizer Professor Cornelius Torp.

Video recordings of all lectures are available here:
