Have you ever wondered about the political significance of such “mega-events” as World Cups, Olympic Games, or European Capitals of Culture? This Winter semester, we offer a visiting lecturer course on precisely this fascinating topic, taught by David Knoll, researcher at the Department of Politics and Public Administration and the University of Konstanz. The block course is taught on November 7-9, but registration for it is in the regular period at the beginning of the semester. David Knoll, the lecturer, focuses in his research on two main topics: the politics of mega events as such, and on historical legacies in democratic backsliding in Europe.
