Towards a Central European Doctoral School

The workshop will be based on presentations of ongoing Ph.D. research projects. It will explore topics related to the comparative and transnational history of Europe and history of transformations. There are three main aims of the workshop: (1) to raise the quality of Ph.D. programs in modern history by strengthening the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and skills among Ph.D. students as well as senior researchers in the field; (2) to foster the cooperation between three Central European universities (Charles University in Prague, University of Vienna, and University of Warsaw) and (3) to host a kick-off meeting for the future establishment of a Central European doctoral school in modern history. 

The two-day workshop will take place in Prague and joined by three senior researchers and nine Ph.D. students from each partner university. The event is organized by Associate Professor Ota Konrád (Charles University in Prague), Professor Philipp Ther (University of Vienna), and Professor Jerzy Kochanowski (University of Warsaw).
