Logo 02 200mal200

The Münster Lectures seek to combine the merits of theoretical and literary insight, inviting both a well-known scholar and prominent a writer to discuss current debates, scholastic and social likewise. Shedding new light on controversial debates functions as a mode of cultural encounter, the lectures and discussions are open for participation to scholars, students, and the interested public.
