Guest Professorship


The establishment of a guest professorship is a central element of the progressing implementation of Canadian and Québec Studies at the University of Bremen. The guest professor, who will represent one of the disciplines collaborating in BICQS, will be appointed in the summer term of the respective academic year. The position will be open to university teachers as well as writers, artists, or other outstanding individuals committed to the field. The guest professor will have a teaching obligation of six hours per week during the session time. This contribution will be of major importance when selecting a candidate for the professorship because it will represent a regular component of the programme of the respective subject. The guest professor will be appointed by the vice-chancellor’s office, which will decide on the basis of suggestions submitted by the BICQS advisory council.
