On Wednesday, 26 April the BGHS Welcome Day took place. Ursula Mense-Petermann, the director of the graduate school, welcomed the new colleagues and international guests. After a presentation about the department of history (by Dr. Bettina Brandt) and the faculty of sociology Dr. Sabine Schäfer, the executive manager of the BGHS, informed the participants about the structure and the programme of the BGHS and introduced the staff of the BGHS office. The Doctoral Representatives also took the chance for a warm welcome. In the following coffee break in the BGHS-Lounge the doctoral researchers and guests got to know each other.

Getting Started

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. The Welcome Day ended with a short campus tour.
