The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), Rutgers (The State University of New Jersey), Ruhr University Bochum, and the University of Duisburg-Essen have invited social sciences and humanities PhD students to take part in a two-summer, transatlantic workshop on „Politics, Identities, and Relationships in the Transatlantic World“. Verena Keysers, PhD researcher and project coordinator of the project area “Cultures of Communication” at the KWI, will also participate and on Thursday, July 11, give a presentation.
The workshops will deal with topics such as political identities, alliances, migration, borders, security, conflict, and related issues. The workshops have four goals. First, they provide opportunities for transatlantic peer discussions and intellectual exchange through presentations of student research. Second, the workshops offer practical academic know-how via a series of expert talks on US and German scholarly cultures, fundraising landscapes, and publishing trends. A third goal is to provide opportunities for transatlantic networking among peers and faculty. Finally, the workshops facilitate long-term cooperation between the CUNY Graduate Center (GC CUNY), Rutgers, Ruhr University Bochum (RUB), and the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE).
In the summer of 2020, the workshop will be continued at the Ruhr University Bochum.
