The "Paderborn Pop Lectureship" was launched in 2014 by Prof. Dr Christoph Jacke and Ulrich Lettermann as a special format for the subject of music and specifically the "Popular Music and Media" degree programme. Experts from the fields of popular music and media cultures pass on their knowledge and practical professional experience to students in workshops, lectures and projects. Presenter and music journalist Markus Kavka has already lectured twice. In the 2024 summer semester, the series will be continued by author and cultural scientist Sonja Eismann.
