The Start-up Scholars from Ethiopia, Hungary, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Russia use their four-month stay at the BGHS to develop exposés for their planned dissertation projects. For this, the two women and four men undergo a training programme consisting of colloquia, writing workshops and coaching. They will also present their research projects on 22 June 2016 at 3 pm in the BGHS Seminar Room. The event is called Meet the Start-ups.
The four Visiting Fellows from Croatia, Poland and Romania – two historians and two sociologists – will use their time at the BGHS to work on their dissertation projects.

The four young scholars are doing their doctorates at the University of Warsaw and at the Central European University in Budapest. Their topics concern military elites in the Late Western Roman Empire, the representation of masculinity in Ukrainian politics in the 19th century, economic nationalism and the welfare state in Central and Eastern Europe and the transformation of ideology terms over generations.
In addition to their research, the Visiting Fellows will use their stay at the BGHS to get in contact with the local doctoral researchers at the BGHS in order to build up new networks in the science community and develop their research.
Within the BGHS-event Meet the Fellows on 27 April at 2 pm, the Visiting Fellows will present their research projects in the BGHS Seminar Room. All members of the BGHS are cordially invited.
