For the two candidates in the United States presidential campaign, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, it is hardly worth trying to change voters' minds: this is the view of researchers Dr Alexander Yendell and Professor Gert Pickel from Leipzig University. In a blog post for the University's Research Centre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe), the sociologist and religious sociology expert analysed the voting behaviour of US citizens. In our interview, Gert Pickel explains why the role of ultraconservative evangelicals is so important.
At Leipzig University, teaching will not start until next Monday, 26 October 2020. Around 7000 new students will then begin their studies at the University, around the same number as a year earlier. Two thirds of the new German students come from the eastern German states, and one third from western Germany.
With the return of the Polarstern, the largest Arctic expedition of all time has come to a successful end. For more than a year, the German research icebreaker travelled in five cruise legs with more than 400 people from 20 countries to investigate the epicentre of climate change more precisely than ever before. The complex project was also a success from Leipzig's point of view: all seven participants from the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) and Leipzig University are back in good health and with valuable climate data.
