Leibniz Professor İştar Gözaydın inaugurated at Leipzig University

teaserbildteaserbild

On Tuesday, 15 May, the Turkish Professor of Law and Politics İştar Gözaydın has held her inaugural lecture The Desire Was There as a Leibniz Professor at Leipzig University. For the first time a Leibniz Professor was not able to be present in person for her inaugural lecture, but was forced to give it via video conference. “It is a sad premiere,” said the director of Leipzig University’s Leibniz Programme Monika Wohlrab-Sahr in her laudatory speech, “that an invited scholar, the Leibniz Professor, cannot be present to give her inaugural lecture. Not because she decided to remain absent, but because she is not allowed to leave the country.”
