A newly signed Memorandum of Understanding between Centre for Urban Network Evolutions (UrbNet, Aarhus University) and Max Weber Center for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies (MWK, Universität Erfurt) has consolidated the fruitful collaboration that already exists between the two institutions – so far represented by Professor Rubina Raja (director of UrbNet) and Professor Jörg Rüpke (vice-director of Max-Weber-Kolleg) – and laid the foundation for expanding the academic partnership. The agreement seeks to promote an ongoing exchange of scholars at both junior and senior level, with the intention of sharing expertise and fostering joint projects.

As part of the collaboration agreement, Professor Jörg Rüpke has been awarded a 5-year renewal of his adjunct professorship at Aarhus University, now affiliated with UrbNet. A number of research and teaching stays have been planned, during which Rüpke will offer lectures, contribute to conferences as well as co-organise and co-teach (with Rubina Raja) a series of doctorate courses on historiography.
