Citizens of the World. Academic Freedom in a Global Perspective – 60 Years after President John F. Kennedy’s Speech at Freie Universität Berlin
2023 not only marks the 75th anniversary of Freie Universität Berlin's founding, it is also the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's iconic speech on the FU campus. Keeping in mind his statement that this university “must be interested in turning out citizens of the world” and his idea of universities as incubators of freedom, this event will look at issues of academic freedom from a historical perspective as well as within today's contexts – and think about how to shape academic freedom in the future.

British writers were fascinated by Berlin and came to live here for many different reasons - politics, pleasure and psychoanalysis. The exhibition explores the different experience of gay and lesbian writers, diplomats and budding psychoanalysts. Guided tours by the curators focusing on women writers, the gay experience, and psychoanalysis will take visitors to 1920s' Berlin as seen through English eyes. This exhibition emerged from the collaboration between Prof Stefano Evangelista, Trinity College, Oxford University, who will start his Oxford/BUA Einstein Visiting Fellowship later this year, and Prof Gesa Stedman, Centre for British Studies, HU Berlin. Please find more information on the exhibition website and on the website of Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften .

Falling Walls Circle – Round Table “Science and Politics: Between Independence, Interdependence and Partnership”
Grand societal challenges can no longer be solved in ivory towers and back rooms. Diverse expertise and multidirectional exchange are increasingly important. But how can such collaboration work without compromising the autonomy of individual fields? Focusing on Science & Politics, this round table will explore how scientific knowledge can be offered comprehensively and neutrally and how policy makers can contribute experiences to ongoing research.
