Lucerne Master Class
Lucerne Master Classes | The Culture of Markets
Lucerne Master Classes have brought internationally renowned scholars to Lucerne since 2015. In a week-long course organized by the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (GSL) of the University of Lucerne, they - along with doctoral students from all over the world - analyse a variety of virulent problems in the market through a range of scientific perspectives.
Here you find further information about the Lucerne Master Class 2023 with Prof. Dr. Hanspeter Kriesi on the topic "European Politics in Times of Crises" that will take place October 17th to 20th, 2023.
Prof. Dr. Hanspeter Kriesi (European University Institute, Florence) will be the principal guest at the Lucerne Master Class 2023 with the topic "European Politics in Times of Crisis", which will be held from the 17th to the 20th of October 2023.
The aim of the Master Class is to offer doctoral students from Switzerland and from abroad an intensive exchange with internationally renowned researchers. Doctoral students receive the opportunity to present their work to the other participants and to discuss it with the guest experts. The guest expert also discusses his or her current work with the doctoral students, allowing for an in-depth conversation with benefits for all involved. Finally, the aim is to deepen the participants’ understandings of markets and to go beyond common patterns of perception.
A general public is always invited to a public lecture in which the invited expert presents his or her thoughts on the Lucerne Master Class topic in a condensed fashion.
