Coordinator: Associate Professor Peter Lodberg

Faculty of Theology Jürgen Habermas (Aarhus University 14-16 May 2008)

What's on?

In connection with the publication of a major publication with contributions from all three thematic groups, an event was held on 24 April 2009 to mark the completion of the research priority area.
