Forscher-Alumni Ambassadorin bei Podiumsdiskussion im Erbdrostenhof zum Thema religiöser Pluralismus

Prof. Daniela Bonanno stellt Lehren aus der Antike vor

The Research-Alumni strategy at the University of Münster is not only precious to favour sustainable research cooperations and increase the visibility of our institution in the world. Recently, once more, it’s significance in the field of science-communication was highlighted when the Research-Alumni Ambassadors Prof Daniela Bonanno from the University of Palermo and Prof Corinne Bonnet from the Scuola Superiore Normale di Pisa enriched a podium discussion dealing with different aspects of religious pluralism. Both were nominated in 2018 and have actively maintained their research cooperation with the Seminar of Ancient History since many years.

In the afore mentioned event on Sunday, 18 February 2024 more than 120 interested spectators joined in the beautiful historic building of the Erbdrostenhof, to listen to the theories of experts from different scientific domains on the pacific approach to religious diversity. Keywords were openness, tolerance, the capacity to favour compromise and the willingness to promote self-criticism. The podium discussion war a cooperation project between the Science Office of the City of Münster, the Vice Rector for Internationalisation, Knowledge Transfer and Sustainability and the Welcome Centre in the International Office (where the coordination of the Research-Alumni strategy is based).
