BGHS Working Paper Series 6/2020
Miriam Kanne, former member of the BGHS-Office has published the article "Von der Internationalisierung zur Internationalität? Über das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Hochschulstrategie, Alltagsrealität und den Erwartungshorizonten internationaler Nachwuchswissenschaftler*innen: Start-up scholars an der Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS)" [From internationalization to internationality? On the tension between university strategy, everyday reality and the expectations of young international researchers: Start-up scholars at the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS)] in the BGHS Working Paper Series.
In the course of the internationalisation efforts of German universities and the critical discourse that is being conducted on this topic, the question of how the strategic plan-ning of 'internationalisation' is reflected in the everyday academic life of all those who are the main subjects of 'internationality' is gaining in importance: How and where do incoming students find their place at German universities – especially those who want to make the step from a Master's degree to a doctorate? The assessments of these questions are based on the evaluations of international Master's graduates in sociology and history who were guests at the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) at Bielefeld University for four months as part of the program “Start-up scholarships”, in order to make the transition to doctoral studies.
