Caspar David Friedrich Lectures
The series of lectures run by the Alfried Krupp Institute for Advanced Studies in Greifswald takes as its starting point various aspects of research into German Romanticism and its reception. The lecture series is named after Caspar David Friedrich and focuses on him. Lecturers work in the fields of art history, the philosophy of art, the fine arts, aesthetics and literature. Lectures are open to all interested parties, whether members of the University, local inhabitants or visitors to Greifswald and the surrounding area. Admission is free.
The number of lectures and the range of subjects examined varies from term to term and is determined by a planning group made up of representatives of the Alfried Krupp Institute for Advanced Studies, the University of Greifswald and the Caspar David Friedrich Society. Inaugurated during the winter term of 2005/6, the lectures bring leading researchers to Greifswald.
The Caspar David Friedrich Lectures at the Alfried Krupp Institute for Advanced Studies in Greifswald are based on an initiative of the Caspar David Friedrich Society.
The lectures are given mostly in German but occasionally in English.
