Program of Second International Forum for doctoral candidates in East European art history Berlin

East European art history has recently been enjoying a surge of academic interest, however, within art historical research it remains a marginal area. Accordingly, there are only few suitable platforms for young academics to discuss issues focusing on this subject area. With the annual International Forum for doctoral candidates of art history of Eastern Europe we have initiated such a forum.

Venue: Festsaal der Humboldt Graduate School, Luisenstraße 56, 10117 Berlin

East European art history has recently been enjoying a surge of academic interest, however, within art historical research it remains a marginal area. Accordingly, there are only few suitable platforms for young academics to discuss issues focusing on this subject area. With the annual International Forum for doctoral candidates of art history of Eastern Europe we have initiated such a forum. This event gives a regular opportunity to discuss conceptual, methodical and practical problems regarding dissertations, to network, and to share competences.
