At IPZ, she will hold a Guest Professorship in Comparative Politics, in the context of the replacement of Prof. Daniele Caramani. She will teach the lecture on Comparative Politics at BA level and a seminar in the PPE-Track at MA-level. She will also be available for exchange and interaction at the Department.
We also look forward to her giving the opening keynote lecture of the "Zurich talks on the politics of inequality", an annual series of talks organized at the IPZ in the context of the URPP Equality of Opportunity. The 2021 talk series will address "The politics of socio-structural and spatial inequality in knowledge societies", and Prof. Gingrich will open the series with a lecture (zoom) on September 20th 5-6pm. Please mark your calendar already now. More details on the talk series will follow soon.
