Symposium and Exhibition

October 17, 2023

Academy in Exile supports scholars and cultural producers at risk and advances academic freedom through its fellowship program.  What We Brought with Us presents images of objects carried by some of Academy in Exile's fellows when they fled from their countries of origin to Germany where they were hosted by University of Duisburg-Essen, Free University of Berlin, Forum Transregionale Studien and Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities (KWI) Essen.

University Alliance Ruhr together with our international partner, University of Cincinnati, organized multiple events on academic freedom, resilience and navigating displacement.
