News from Feb 11, 2020
As part of the project "Academics in Solidarity", the workshop "Networking and Mentoring Workshop in the Humanities and Social Sciences for At-Risk Ph.D. students" will take place at the University of Leipzig from 15th to 16th May 2020.
This call is directed at current and prospective Ph.D. students who have experienced difficulties in pursuing or continuing their dissertations due to political reasons and who have therefore left their country of origin, or are considering doing so. The primary purpose of the workshop at Leipzig University is to provide participants with two days of academic normality - a chance to present and discuss their projects among themselves, as well as with local students, and more experienced scholars. The secondary purpose is to create a space for networking and mentorship. A group of senior academics (from the fields of Sociology, Cultural Studies, History, Political Science, Religious Studies, Islamic Studies, Gender and Media Studies) will offer participants an opportunity to think about future academic possibilities.
The workshop will be open to selected participants only. Time and funding will be limited and selection will be based on academic criteria. Travel and accommodation expenses (two nights, May 14-16) for invited participants will be covered
The Application deadline is 29th February 2020.
