University Anniversaries Workshop

University Anniversaries between Past, Present and Future - a Virtual International Workshop at KIT, Department of History, June 18-19, 2020.

The history of universities, technical universities or universities of applied sciences is once time educational, social, technical, scientific, gender and political history - and much more. Starting from the founding anniversaries of these institutions, our workshop aim was to enter into a conversation with researchers about the function of university anniversaries.

The encouraging response to the Call for Papers enabled the organizing team to create a multi-faceted program, with speakers from different countries highlighting different eras and topics.

Selected workshop products and documents can be found under Materials.
