Scholarship holders fill the reading room with life

The first two Liselotte-Kirchner scholarship holders have arrived.

[Translate to Englisch:] Ein Mann und eine Frau lesen in alten Schriften.
[Translate to Englisch:] Frau Dr. Emily Teo und Herr Michael Leemann beim Forschen im Lesesaal.

Already last week Monday Michael Leemann (Göttingen) started his research on »race« and »race discourses« in the mission historiography. Since this Monday we also welcome Dr. Emily Teo (Erfurt/ Gotha) in the foundations. She is doing research on the image of China in the 18th century and will dedicate herself in particular to the famous conflict between Christian Wolff and the Halle Pietists around August Hermann Francke, which was inflamed by this image.
