Symposium Young Marsilius Fellows 2023

Crossing through Time and Space

2nd Young Marsilius Fellows’ Symposium



The second generation of Young Marsilius Fellows (YMF) invites you to let go of your disciplinary boundaries and cross with us through time and space. This one-day symposium and its workshops are the result of a year-long conversation between 12 young scholars, tasked with communicating across different disciplinary languages as well as academic cultures and practices. The symposium presents the fellows’ collaborative engagement with the theme “Time and Space”. Attendees are warmly invited to meet the fellows, participate in the workshops and join the conversation.
The event will take place on 20 July 2023 between 10 and 16:15 in the Marsilius Kolleg. We welcome students and faculty members of all disciplines, as well as the general public.

If you would like to participate in the symposium, please register here.
