As in the last two semesters, the research seminar will be hybrid: people from Bonn and the surrounding area are warmly invited to come to the main building of the University, where the seminar will take place in seminar room 1.070 of the Institute of Philosophy, also known as “the big seminar room”. The other possibility is to join us via Zoom; links and weekly reminders are announced via email@example.com. Subscribing to this list is possible here: https://listen.uni-bonn.de/wws/info/hpp .
