Professor Shechtman’s Class Canceled Due to Presidential Election Run

Special Lecture on Advanced Physics 1, which was supposed to be offered this spring semester, was canceled due to Professor Shechtman’s presidential election run in his homeland Israel. Professor Shechtman, who is a Nobel Prize laureate (Chemistry, 2011), came to SNU last year to join the Department of Physics and Astronomy. The Department of Physics and Astronomy stated that they could not find another professor to teach Professor Schechtman’s class, as his presidential candidacy was announced only recently. “This is the first time a class has been canceled due to a presidential election run by a professor,” DongA Ilbo quoted a school official explaining.
