Fellow Lectures

Every semester, we invite our fellows to present their current research projects at the Fellow Lecture series and to discuss them with the audience. The lecture programme is supplemented by external speakers who can provide new impulses for our joint research work. The event is open to the public.

Tip: You can watch previous Fellow Lectures on the Kolleg's YouTube channel.

  • Winter Semester 2021/2022

    The winter semester marks the launch of the first public lecture series ("Abendvorträge") of the Käte Hamburger Kolleg. The lectures take a look at very different phenomena of the tension between legal unity and plurality from Roman antiquity to the late Middle Ages.

    Fellows and members of the Kolleg as well as guest speakers will contribute to the event. The lectures impressively show how societies at all times have been shaped by legal pluralism. It can occur as contradictions between norms, as competition between different jurisdictions, or as unequal treatment of individuals. At the same time, we can usually observe efforts to limit and standardize plurality. Under the theme "Exception and Plurality," this year's focus is on the question of how the inherent tension between unity and plurality corresponds to the relationship between rule and exception.
