Call for Application: Graduate Student Workshop

Feb 06, 2014

For the second time, the Cluster welcomes applications by doctoral students for funding a “Graduate Student Workshop”. Successful applicants will receive funds to organize and implement an academic event according to their interests and needs. Applications can be submitted until May 10, 2014.

The funding supports doctoral students to hold an event conceptualized, organized and implemented by and for themselves. For this purpose, the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies (GPTS) together with the Cluster’s four Research Areas will provide funding of up to 7000 Euro.
Doctoral students of Heidelberg University are entitled to submit applications together with doctoral students of the GPTS. At least one member of the GPTS or of an ongoing research project at the Cluster has to be involved in each collaborative application. Applications should include the title, format, schedule and budget plan of the event, as well as an abstract highlighting the added value expected to be gained from it. Furthermore, they should contain details and, ideally, confirmations from invited and participating persons, as well as a preliminary programme. Cooperation within and beyond Heidelberg University is specifically welcome.
The workshop should be scheduled for the first quarter of 2015. Applications of not more than 10 pages (one PDF-file) should be submitted until May 10, 2014 to gradworkshop@asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de.

For further questions please contact the GPTS or the Research Area Coordinators under the same address.


The Cluster’s first Graduate Student Workshop "Newspapers and Transculturality: New Approaches to Working with Historical Newspapers" was held at the Karl Jaspers Centre from January 30 to February 1, 2014. The conference brought together junior and senior scholars who are studying the history of newspapers or else intensively using historical newspapers as their primary sources. The participants demonstrated innovative methods in studying newspapers and discussed different methodological approaches to analysing transcultural elements of newspaper-making. The conference was organised by doctoral students Rudolph Ng (GPTS), Anna Sawerthal (D19 Kalimpong) and Johanna de Schmidt (MC12 Floating Spaces).
