GPTS Colloquium - Winter Semester 2018/19

The GPTS Colloquium serves as a platform for doctoral candidates to present their projects and receive feedback from peers, supervisors and other researchers. The colloquium is organised by the Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies (GPTS).

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 HCTS/Cluster and welcomes guest presentations by doctoral students from other institutes who work on a topic close to the HCTS/Cluster’s transcultural framework. For further information, please contact the GPTS Coordinator, Dr. Jule Nowoitnick.

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