Thirty-eight professors named in Carolinum ceremony

Thirty-eight new professors were named on Friday at a ceremony at Prague’s Carolinum - six of them women. The decrees were issued by the deputy for university studies and research, Jaromír Veber. Originally, university chancellors threatened to boycott the ceremony, after the country’s president, Miloš Zeman, refused to name three academics on the grounds they cooperated with the communist secret police in former Czechoslovakia.
