Each semester, two to four doctoral researchers from abroad conduct their research in Bielefeld as guests of the Graduate School. As Visiting-Fellows at the BGHS they have time to work on their dissertation projects, discuss them with doctoral researchers and professors at Bielefeld University and have the chance to create new networks(more information and application).
Visiting Fellows Summer Term 2014
In Summer Term 2014, BGHS was proud to host Scott Krause, Stephen Morgan, and Kerem Öktem as Visiting Fellows.
The young scholars from the USA and Turkey used their time in Bielefeld to work intensively on their dissertations. To this end, each was given office space and access to BGHS infrastructure.
During Summer Term, the Fellows took part in the BGHS degree program and presented their research at Bielefeld University/BGHS conferences, workshops, and seminars. These presentations gave them the opportunity to connect with Bielefeld University/BGHS professors and doctoral candidates and build their academic networks.
Their stay at Bielefeld furthered not only academic exchange, but also social and cultural exchange with BGHS members, promoting international dialogue among our graduate students.
After a fruitful period of hard work and exciting experiences, the Visiting Fellows sadly said goodbye to their new friends and colleagues at the BGHS and returned to their universities after the end of Summer Term, or are working elsewhere on their dissertations and academic careers.
