The jubilee edition of friedrich will be available for the entire year of 2018. This magazine, of course, looks back on FAU’s 275-year history, and perhaps even more importantly, looks at the future of research and teaching at the FAU.

In 1993, the ‘History of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg 1743-1993’ was published by Prof. Dr. Alfred Wendehorst, the long-standing professor of the Department of Bavarian and Franconian History as well as the university archivist. Since then, a quarter of a century has passed. This gap in university history will be closed on this anniversary by one of FAU’s most celebrated historians, Prof. Dr. Gregor Schöllgen, with the book ‘Wissen in Bewegung. 275 Jahre FAU’.
