As a university-based institute for advanced studies, CAS supports cooperation in all its programs: between LMU scholars and outstanding international guests. The CAS Research Focuses will make considerable use of this opportunity during the winter semester: upon invitation from Barbara Vinken, Emanuele Coccia (Paris) will cooperate with the Research Focus "What About Art?" and will hold several events on the subject of norms and artistic freedom. As part of the Research Focus "Global Dis/Connections", the theater studies scholar Charlotte Canning (Austin), a specialist for the cultural history of the cold war, will be in Munich upon invitation from Christopher Balme. Geoffrey Khan (Cambridge) along with Ronny Vollandt (Research Focus "Textual Practices") will offer a workshop on Masoretic texts. The Research Focus "Global Health" will bring two guest fellows to CAS: Carmi Margolis (Israel), an expert for global health education, and mental health specialist Eshetu Girma (Addis Abeba). Both will hold several workshops and lectures.
