The Doctoral Program is organizing its 6th annual doctoral research retreat on 05. and 06. December 2022 at the Retzhof in southern Styria. With the financial support of the state of Styria (Land Steiermark, Kultur, Europa, Sport), we are able to fund the participation of 10 doctoral students from the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia).
The funding covers accommodation and food for two days and one night stay at the Retzhof as well as a travel subsidy of 100 Euro. We are looking for doctoral researchers working on topics related to the larger theme of Europeanisation Processes in Southeastern Europe. The projects can draw from a range of disciplines, including but not exclusively political sciences, history, economics, sociology, anthropology, human geography. We are interested in critical approaches on how to study the ideas, influence and ways in which Europe and notions of Europe are shaping Southeastern Europe. These studies may, but do not necessarily engage with the European Union.
Outstanding presentations can be published in the peer reviewed open access journal “Contemporary Southeastern Europe”
Please submit a CV and a brief outline (1 page) of your doctoral project by November 11th 2022 to h.paic(at)uni-graz.at
