The BMZ (Berner Mittelalterzentrum) has a lecture series on "Fremdbilder - Selbstbilder: Juden und Christen im Mittelalter." Some lectures are held in English. Click here to see their programme.
Attending guest lectures from both these lecture series may be counted towards MA Students' 1 ECTS guest lecture requirement, if the chosen lecture is held in English. Moreover, if the lecture is online, students are required to write a one-page summary of the lecture.
Due to COVID-19, all guest lectures were cancelled or postponed.
