Young academics from all over the world starting work on their dissertations

This summer semester, the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) will be welcoming 17 new doctoral students. Six of them – three women and three men – are being funded by the BGHS. They were awarded their scholarships after a multi-stage international selection procedure.

Three of the five doctoral students receiving scholarships from the BGHS are returning to the Graduate School for their doctorates: Mehran Haji-Mohammadian from Iran and Sisay Megersa Dirirsa from Ethiopia had previously attended the Graduate School as start-up scholars. With the support of this scholarship programme targeting international MA graduates, the two international researchers were already able to work on exposés for their planned dissertation topics. Theresa Renana Faye Hornischer prepared for her doctorate in the shortcut scholarship programme for German-speaking young academics at the BGHS.

The topics for the new doctoral projects vary greatly: What is the recent history of Ethiopia like? Do children bring happiness? How do people and dogs communicate with each other? These are just three out of the total of 17 research questions.

The BGHS offers structured doctoral programmes in history and sociology at Bielefeld University. It is international, it is open to all topics within the breadth of the cooperating disciplines, and it thrives on interdisciplinary exchange. It has been funded since 2007 as part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments. It is currently in the second phase of funding up to 2017. From November 2017 onwards, all Graduate Schools, and therefore the BGHS as well, will enter a two-year phase of final funding as the Excellence Initiative draws to an end.
