On Wednesday, 10 October the BGHS Welcome Day in winter term 2018/19 took place. Ursula Mense-Petermann, Director of the BGHS, welcomed the new colleagues. Following this Sabine Schäfer (Executive Management of the BGHS) and Bettina Brandt (Scientific Management of the Department of History) informed the new doctoral researcher about the BGHS, the Faculty of Sociology and the Department of History. After that the doctoral representatives introduced themselves. At the following coffee break in the BGHS-Lounge the doctoral researchers and guests had the chance to get to know each other better.
In the second part of the Welcome Day the new doctoral researchers of the BGHS received some more information concerning the doctorate: information on the study programme and BGHS specific formats (Dr. Sabine Schäfer), on financial support and applications for travel- and mobility grants (Dr. Miriam Kanne), on transferable skills and career services (Melanie Eulitz) and on former and planned public science- and Art&Science-projects (Thomas Abel). Information on technical questions and the infrastructure at the BGHS (Frank Leitenberger) completed the session.
