Cluster Colloquium - Programme for Summer Semester 2018

Coordinated by Dr. Jule 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 their project and receive feedback from peers, supervisors and other researchers. All presenters have a slot of 45 minutes of which approx. 15-20 minutes are reserved for the 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, Dr. Jule Nowoitnick, via email at nowoitnick@asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de or via phone at +49 (0) 6221 54 4009.

All HCTS/Cluster members are also very welcome to participate as member of the audience! Please register with the coordinator in advance so you receive the preparatory material for the sessions.
