Frauen in der Politischen Öffentlichkeit. Damals und Heute.

Frauen in der politischen Öffentlichkeit begegnen besonderen, gender-spezifischen Vorurteilen, Erwartungen und Reaktionen. Welche dies sein können, und inwiefern sich hier Konstanten vom alten Rom bis in die Gegenwart ziehen lassen, ist Thema unseres interdisziplinären Panels mit Beiträgen aus der Geschichtswissenschaft, der Politikwissenschaft und der Soziologie.

Our JQYA Academy Day was a great success!

The Academy Day was succesfully held on Friday, June 19.

Our new topic Tenets, Variations, Transformations was lauched at the Academy Day as a face-to-face event in compliance with the hygiene regulations. Nine new Fellows and Members were honoured by being accepted into the JQ Young Academy. We thank all participants, cooperation partners and technical support for making this day a great success!
