Coffee Lectures at the Study Centre: Interesting facts during the coffee break

For the first time in 2023, the August Hermann Francke Study Centre invites you to a coffee break with information content. On the last Tuesday of every month at 1 p.m., colleagues from the Study Centre and the Research Centre will give short, entertaining talks of about 15 minutes, providing insights into the various areas and services offered by the Science Department of the Francke Foundations: From literature research, information on the collections in the archive and library, questions about the Old Book to interesting facts about current projects.

Interested users of the reading room, students, colleagues from the departments of the Francke Foundations and their partner institutions on the Foundation grounds are invited to attend.

The event will be held in German.
