At the start of the new semester, the Faculty of Philosophy and the Faculty of Theology would like to welcome all new colleagues and wish them a successful start! Prof. Dr. Ursula Roth is briefly introduced here as the new professor:

Prof. Dr. Ursula Roth has held the Chair of Practical Theology (Homiletics, Liturgy, Poimenik) at the Institute for Practical Theology since October 1, 2020. The subject of her research and teaching practice are Christian-religious practices. Her research is not limited to the classical, church-institutionalised forms of practice such as worship or pastoral care. She is also interested in forms of action beyond the boundaries of the church, such as those found in private or public life (e.g. private memorial culture, public commemoration ceremonies). Ursula Roth was previously Professor of Practical Theology in the Department of Protestant Theology at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. She also fulfils the role of university preacher at FAU.
