18th Leipzig PhD lecture series

As Leipzig University is planning to shut down whole departments such as Theater Studies, Archaeology and Physical Chemistry and to minimize other institutes like Romance Studies, it is time to react to the scenarios of academic doom and gloom and to show what Leipzig’s research landscape has to offer. Despite the nearing dissolution of these departments the „Council for Doctoral Candidates“ at Leipzig University” (ProRat) invite especially graduate students of the departments that are affected by the decision to be closed to fill this academic “tragedy” with life by telling us your dissertational stories. We invite proposals concerning death, ruin or collapse for a 20-minute presentation in German or English, deadline for submission is April 13, 2014. For further details see our Call for papers.

Photo Exhibition "Dissertation Stories"

Since the beginning of December 2011 the photo series "Dissertation Stories" has been exhibited on the Research Academy's premises in Burgstraße 21, 1st floor.

The idea for the photo competition goes back to an initiative of the Doctoral Students Representatives of the Research Academy (RA-Doc) at the end of 2010, and the Research Academy gladly joined the project as co-organiser. All PhD candidates of the University of Leipzig were invited to present their PhD project or their ideas on doing a PhD by means of a single photograph.  The most convincing results are being presented in a permanent photo exhibition titled “Dissertation Stories” on the Research Academy’s premises.
