In conjunction with the 9th International ESPRit Conference in Bochum, a postgraduate workshop will be held on 15 September 2020. We seek applications from graduate students working on any topic with regard to periodicals from any historical period, geographical origin, and cultural context. The workshop is open to postgraduate students working in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences and using any methodology or approach. Priority will be given to advanced doctoral students, but applications by graduate students at any stage of preparation of their dissertation will also be considered. Personalised feedback will be offered by a committee comprising ESPRit members and members of the DFG Research Unit 2288 Journal Literature. Participants of the workshop will have their conference fee waived. Furthermore, we seek to secure funding for travel expenses and accommodation.

To apply, please send a 500-word abstract of the thesis to be presented and a short CV (150 words) including name, institutional affiliation, and email address to the organisers no later than 31 January 2020 (This email address is being protected from spambots.
