№ 293/2010 from Oct 05, 2010
With the start of the 2010/11 fall/winter semester, the Open Lecture Hall series at Freie Universität Berlin will again present two new lecture series. The opening lecture will be given by Paul Krugman on Wednesday, October 20, 2010. Krugman is a professor of economics at Princeton University and a winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics. His lecture will be on “The Failure of Crisis Management.” Through the Open Lecture Hall series, weekly lectures will be presented in two main thematic areas. In the first series, “Sex in Biology: A Change in Perspective” (first lecture: October 19, 2010), most of the lectures will be held in German. In the second series, “American Dream? Democratic Society in Crisis” (first lecture: October 28, 2010), about half of the lectures will be held in English. Admission to all events is free of charge, and advance registration is not required.
