Lecture by Patrick Marek Smigiel, FB 02

The number of people who are still part of one of the two big Christian churches in Germany is getting smaller and smaller, soon less than half of the population. Theology is also affected by this. The number of theology students has been declining for years. For example, the theological faculty in Fulda will be completely relocated to Marburg for WiSe 2022/2023. Against this background, Patrick Marek Smigiel discusses the question: theology, who needs it?

A brown bag, filled with a delicious sandwich and a sweet from the Studierendenwerk, is available at the Pavillon Café (students 3€, employees and guests 3,30€).

Informal and casual is the format of the Brown Bag Lecture: In cooperation with the departments of the university and the Studierendenwerk, young scientists* present their research topic in entertaining short lectures - while the audience* relaxes and eats their American Sandwich from the brown paper bag. The entire breadth of research is represented and the presenters strengthen their skills in science communication.
