Professor Gertrud Reershemius captivated an audience of staff and students from across the university as she shared the details of her professional journey as an academic.
Professor Reershemius’ account of her experiences as a German native studying Theology and spending time in Jerusalem was just one of the many stories that kept the audience compelled and inquisitive about her career journey
She also gave a brief insight into how she found that studying Theology was not a the best route for her and making the transition to being a professor of languages opened up a wealth of opportunities for her, ultimately leading her to become a professor in the school of Languages and Social Sciences at Aston.
Her talk was followed by a question and answer session led by journalist and former BBC current affairs producer, John Mair, as well as questions from the audience.
