Public Lecture Series
After two years of the pandemic, the lecture series is returning to the main building of the LMU and will in future also be simultaneously streamed online: With the Science Talks, LMU, in cooperation with the Munich University Society and with MEDIASCHOOL Bayern, is providing space for a dialogue about the role of science in our present-day society in winter semester 2022/23. Every two weeks, scientists from LMU will engage in a conversation on a variety of topics with well-known personalities from politics, business, society, and research. At the same time, the audience will also have the opportunity to post questions via a digital tool and thus contribute in shaping the discussion.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lecture series was offered as an online series of events in each of the past two winters, 2020/21 and 2021/22: LMU’s Corona Lectures and AI Lectures reached an extremely large and diverse audience, who were able to learn about issues of cutting-edge research and address their questions to the scientists from LMU who presented them.
The Studium Generale offers a combination of lectures covering general interest and interfaculty topics. These are available to students and LMU members. For students, this is a unique opportunity to broaden your knowledge beyond your specific subject area, and get inspiration for your academic field by exploring neighboring ones.
