Max Weber Lectures 2012-2013
The monthly Max Weber Lectures are given by distinguished scholars representing the four disciplines in the programme (Economics, History, Law and Political and Social Sciences).
The programme aims at inviting scholars who have a special interdisciplinary focus which will be of broad academic interest to all members of our academic community.
The lectures are at 17.00, normally the 3rd Wednesday of the month, and are followed by a cocktail at Villa La Fonte.
