Prof. Dr. Christian Mann receives “Opus Magnum” scholarship

The Volkswagen Foundation has awarded the Mannheim historian the “Opus Magnum” fellowship for his book “Ancient Sport: A Social History”.

Award includes funds for a faculty substitute for three semesters. Funding begins on February 1.

As part of the grant, the Mannheim historian will be supported by a teaching substitute from February 2023 to July 2024, so that he can fully concentrate on completing his book. During this time, his teaching position will be taken over by PD Dr. Julia Hoffmann-Salz from Freie Universität Berlin.
