Preparing for a Doctoral Project

Host Institution: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Coordinating Institution: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Website: http://www.gs.oses.de

Dates: 24-Jun-2013 - 26-Jun-2013
Location: Munich, Germany

Focus: You want to pursue a doctoral project about Eastern and Southeastern
Europe in history, cultural studies or social sciences, but you do not have a
final dissertation proposal yet? The Graduate School for East and Southeast
European Studies (Munich and Regensburg, Germany) invites applications from
graduates from non-German universities for the workshop “Preparing for a doctoral
project”. It aims at supporting students who have finished an M.A. program or are
in the final phase of their graduate studies to prepare a PhD project, with which
they can apply for a scholarship from the Graduate School.
Minimum Education Level: MA


The workshop takes place in Munich from June 24th to June 26th, 2013.
The Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies is a cooperative
post-graduate program organized by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in
Munich and the University of Regensburg. The School is funded by the German
Excellence Initiative and was established in November 2012. The Graduate
School organizes a comprehensive and competitive doctoral program with an
interdisciplinary profile: its faculty comes from history, literary and
language studies, art history, theatre studies, political sciences, and law.
The Graduate School also studies the relationships and entanglements of
Eastern and Southeastern Europe with other parts of the world. Therefore,
specialist from other area studies (Chinese Studies, Japanese Studies, North
American Studies, European Studies) are included in the School’s faculty as
well. The research of the Graduate School addresses three broad fields:

- Origins and Forms of Social and Political Change
- Cultural Systems
- Infrastructure, Migration and Transfer of Knowledge

As part of its recruitment program, the Graduate School organizes an annual
workshop for graduates from foreign universities in order to support them
preparing an application for the Graduate School. We will invite up to ten
graduate students, who will work with researchers of the Graduate School on
potential dissertation projects. They will also be informed about the
particularities of academia and PhD studies in Germany. The workshop as the
curriculum of the Graduate School is held in English and German. Good
knowledge of both languages is mandatory.
