GPTS Colloquium for Cluster PhDs Winter Term 2017/18

(Tuesdays, 16-18h, Room 212)

coordinated by J. Nowoitnick

Every semester, the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies (GPTS) coordinates a colloquium for doctoral candidates of the Cluster. The colloquium serves as platform to present your project and receive feedback from your peers and supervisors. All presenters have a slot of 45 minutes of which approx. 15-20 minutes are reserved for the presentation. If you want to present just one chapter of your dissertation, please make sure to still include a short introductory section in your presentation.

Participation is mandatory for GPTS candidates in their first and third year in the programme. However, the colloquium is open to all doctoral candidates of the Cluster and welcomes guest presentations by doctoral students from other institutes who work on a topic close to the Cluster’s transcultural framework.

If you are interested in presenting in one of the free slots (see below), please contact the GPTS lecturer, Jule Nowoitnick, via email at nowoitnick@asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de or via phone at +49 (0) 6221 54 4009.
