Max Weber Lectures


MWL first half

The monthly Max Weber Lectures are given by distinguished scholars from the four disciplines of the EUI. The Programme aims at inviting scholars who address topical issues from an interdisciplinary perspective that will appeal to the EUI academic community as a whole.

At least one of the Lecturers will be related to each of the Thematic Research Groups (TRG), and every Group will have an opportunity to organize a master class on the following day with the relevant Lecturer. All Lecturers will also be available to discuss the work of Fellows on an informal basis.

Unless otherwise stated the lectures are at 17.00, the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the EUI main building, the Badia Fiesolana, and are followed by a cocktail.

For further information about individual Max Weber Lectures, please contact Karin Tilmans.
