Rosi Braidotti awarded Humboldt prize

Distinguished University Professor Rosi Braidotti has received a Humboldt Research Award. Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation selects up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards. This Award is granted to internationally leading researchers from all disciplines, working outside Germany, in recognition of their life accomplishments in research and teaching to date.

Rosi Braidotti adds: “My research collaboration with Prof. Casper-Hehne and her team at Göttingen University has been extremely productive and  forward-looking. We share a commitment to highlight the importance of the Humanities to the contemporary world, stressing both the strength of their traditions and the force of their interdisciplinary creativity. We especially care for the social relevance of the field in Europe today and its ability to address the great technological challenges of our times in a spirit of social and environmental justice.”

The Humboldt Research Awards will be officially presented to the winners during the Humboldt Foundation’s annual meeting in Berlin, on June 24-26, 2022, at an awards ceremony hosted by the President of the Foundation, which will be followed by a reception hosted by the President of the Federal Republic of Germany.
