New Round of Graduate Programme

Oct 15, 2013

The Cluster welcomes 8 new doctoral students who join the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies this October. They will pursue their projects at the Cluster for three academic years.

The doctoral students, who come from China, Germany, India, Italy, Lithuania and Taiwan, were selected out of roughly 200 applicants from over 30 Nations. The new students were welcomed at an info session on October 9, at the Karl Jaspers Centre. Programme coordinator Björn-Ole Kamm introduced them to the Cluster and the GPTS, and current GPTS students shared their experiences at the Cluster.

During the first year of their studies at Karl Jaspers Centre, the new doctoral students will attend a series of thematically focused classes. The second year of their programme is reserved for field research and the third will be spent writing up and presenting the findings of their research.

The Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies constitutes an essential part of the Cluster’s work and shares its thematic focus on shifting asymmetries in cultural flows between Asia and Europe. GPTS combines the European model of highly individualized doctoral studies with a well-structured framework of guided courses, supervision and mentoring. Since 2008, there have already been four rounds of GPTS students at the Cluster.
