Interdisziplinäres Forum für DoktorandInnen und PostdoktorandInnen des JFKI und der GSNAS

Dienstag, 12:15 to 13:45 Uhr
Seminarraum, Graduate School of North American Studies, Lansstr. 5

Das Interdisziplinäre Forum der GSNAS lädt alle DoktorandInnen und PostdoktorandInnen der Graduiertenschule und des John F. Kennedy Instituts dazu ein, sich an den Workshops zu beteiligen. TeilnehmerInnen haben die Möglichkeit, ihre Forschungsarbeit zu präsentieren und zur Diskussion zu stellen. Die Mitglieder des Forums sind WissenschaftlerInnen aus verschiedenen Disziplinen, unter anderem aus den Kultur- und Literaturwissenschaften, der Geschichtswissenschaft, Politikwissenschaft, Soziologie und der Wirtschaftswissenschaft. Der interdisziplinäre Ansatz ist bewusst gewählt, um neue Berührungspunkte zwischen den Disziplinen zu schaffen, so unser Kritisches Denken zu beleben und neue Impulse für unsere Fragestellungen und Analysemethoden zu gewinnen.

Bei weiteren Fragen wenden Sie sich bitte an Simon Strick, strick@gsnas.fu-berlin.de.
