Joint Colloquium for MA and PhD Students

Université de Haute Alsace Mulhouse - Université de Strasbourg - Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen

For almost ten years, a rich and productive disciplinary exchange within the field of English literature has existed between the Universities of Strasbourg (France) and Tübingen. Since 2021, an annual colloquium has been added to the spectrum of collaborative efforts between the two universities that is open to MA and PhD students. The Université de Haute Alsace in Mulhouse has recently joined the programme and will participate in this summer's colloquium for the first time. In June, four doctoral students from France will present their work in a one-day colloquium at Tübingen, joined by two doctoral students from Tübingen. They will be accompanied by their supervisors and spend the day with academic discussion and critical debate.
