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". The
workshop takes place in Munich from June 23rd to June 25th, 2014. 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.

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

- 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.

The Graduate School will cover the travel costs of the invited
participants and their accommodation in twin rooms in Munich.

Workshop participants will be selected on the basis of their previous
academic achievements and their preliminary dissertation project.
