ALL DISCIPLINES: Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference of the University of Trier

When? 11.12.2020 from 9am - 5pm

Where? University of Trier (As of now, the conference will be held as a face-to-face event in compliance with hygiene measures; if this is not possible due to corona-related restrictions, the conference will be held digitally)

For the second time, an interdisciplinary graduate conference will take place at the University of Trier. It is open to doctoral students of all disciplines, regardless of their institutional affiliation or the status of their doctorate. This open approach is based on the desire to promote the interdisciplinary networking of doctoral students more strongly and to provide insights into other disciplines that can provide positive impulses for their own research.

Accordingly, the conference will focus on interdisciplinary exchange and the opportunity to gain initial experience in the field of academic conferences and to develop one's own skills in academic communication.

In order to be able to present the broadest possible spectrum of research work and not to miss out on the discussion following the lectures, there will be about 15 minutes available for presentations. This limitation has proved to be a good idea, as it allows even people from other disciplines to gain a trenchant insight into their own work and at the same time challenges the presenters to communicate their own research in a way that can be conveyed in about 15 minutes.

Lectures can be given in both German and English, and the same applies to the subsequent discussion.

Besides the possibility to give a lecture, there is also the possibility to present one's own research by exhibiting a poster.

If you are interested in participating, please apply by: Sunday, October 11, 2020

HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES: DFG - German-Italian cooperation in the humanities and social sciences 2022

Deadline: 15.12.2020

Within the framework of an agreement with the German Research Foundation (DFG), Villa Vigoni is once again announcing a program of events between Germany and Italy for 2022 to promote the humanities and social sciences.

The core of the program are the Villa Vigoni Talks. These focus on topics that deepen current debates on the culture, history and society of Europe. The focus is on intensive discussion in conversation, which is deliberately different from the usual conference formats. The number of participants is therefore limited; a circle of 20 persons is the target number.

The project is intended to take into account the institutional mission of Villa Vigoni, "to promote German-Italian relations in science, education and culture in the European spirit", and, if possible, to enable young scholars to meet. The scientific guiding question, which ensures the event's coherence in terms of content, should be made plausibly clear.

Eligible are postdocs who have been awarded their doctoral / PhD degrees one to two years prior to their applications. They should be able to carry out their project within one to two years. The project needs to be linked to their own, independent research plan that is to be carried out while working at a university or non-profit research organisation.

This connection can be established either at a personal level through German scientists working on the project, at an institutional level through non-German scientists being affiliated to German research institutes or through studies on topics related thematically to German research interests.

No stipends are awarded for doctoral dissertations or “Habilitationen” (post-doctoral research) or to complete such works to follow up support through other institutions. The foundation generally does not accept any applications for projects if applications are being filed with other institutions offering support at the same time.
