Speaker Series: Politics of Repression – Strategies and Resistances in Scholarship
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 – 16:00 to 17:00
This Kick-Off event of the Speaker Series: Politics of Repression – Strategies and Resistances in Scholarship offers an insight into the work of the `Scholars at Risk´-network, their motivations, support structures and history.
How does a university like Leibniz University Hannover deal with threats to scientists worldwide and how can a university support persecuted scholars. The concept of academic freedom and its meaning for the Leibniz University Hannover will be the focus of this event.
