Uni-Anniversary 2018

Deed of the university's foundation 1818 online

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the founding of the University of Bonn, an interactive version of the foundational deed of our university from October 18, 1818 has been developed at our chair in cooperation with the Department of University Communication. It is now available online with numerous links, references, comments, scientific assistance and a transcription. Part of the image material used originates from the collection of certificates of the Institute of Historical Studies. The presentation, which was designed by photographer Volker Lannert from Bonn, is intended to encourage students and interested laypersons to engage with this topic. If you search well, you might even find a sound effect!

The initiative came from Jonas Bechtold M.A.; we were supported by our university archivist Dr. Thomas Becker and PD Dr. Alheydis Plassmann. Many thanks to all of them and to Dr. Andreas Archut's team!

On the Blog "Rheinische Geschichte - wissenschaftlich bloggen" an article by Jonas Bechtold and Michael Rohrschneider on this topic was published. See here for the press release of the university of Bonn.
