Friday, 19th February 2016Miscellaneous

The Excellence Cluster UniCat posted recently an interview with Prof. Bretislav Friedrich (FHI) about an article he wrote jointly with Prof. Dieter Hoffmann (MPI für Wissenschaftsgeschichte) about Clara Haber, nee Immerwahr. The article, to be published by the Zeitschrift für Allgemeine und Anorganische Chemie (ZAAC), examines Clara’s life, work and legacy, and takes a critical look at the “myth of Clara Immerwahr” that took root in the 1990s and has shaped her public image until this day. The interview, which provides the gist of the ZAAC article, was conducted by the Public Relations officer of UniCat, Dr. Martin Penno. The entire interview is available here.
