22nd meeting of the Humboldt University Foundation

At the 22nd meeting of the Humboldt University Foundation Professor Gerd Graßhoff, director of the Excellence Cluster Topoi, allows new perspectives on the Antique World.


The 22nd meeting of the Humboldt Foundation deals with the question of how our perspective(s) on the antique world can be changed by entirely new concepts developed by interdisciplinary work of multiple scientists. The lecture informs about the very special way of cooperation in a large scale-project like TOPOI and will include a presentation of results but also give a glimpse into the future of the Excellence Cluster Topoi which since 2012 has been carried out by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin.

Keynote Speech:
"Zeit Raum Wissen in den antiken Kulturen" by Prof. Dr. Gerd Graßhoff

Following the lecture of Professor Graßhoff Humboldt-University Foundation and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin present original exhibits from Alexander von Humboldt and explain their historical significance.
