Lars Rensmann appointed Professor of European Politics and Society

05 April 2016

Recently, Lars Rensmann was appointed Professor of European Politics and Society. He will conduct research in the field of the history and theory of international relations and political relations within Europe. His work also focuses on European political thought, politics and sports, and racism and anti-Semitism in Europe. In addition, Rensmann will be responsible for the new Bachelor's degree programme in European Languages and Cultures (ETC), which is developing its own identity as a unique European studies programme. While language-specific elements play an important part, a key emphasis will be on a comprehensive modern European perspective on politics, society, literatures and linguistics. This is underlined by the inclusion of a Politics and Society profile, alongside the Language and Society profile and the Culture and Literature profile.

Rensmann studied political science in Iowa and Berlin, where he was awarded a PhD with distinction in political science by the Free University Berlin in 2002. Rensmann was previously Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of the Department of Political Science and International Affairs at John Cabot University in Rome and Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (USA).
