New Graduate School for East and South East European Studies
The new Graduate School for East and South East European Studies has been hard at work since last November, but its Official Opening is still to come. In his guest lecture on 17. June, Jochen Hellbeck, Associate Professor of History at Rutgers University in New Jersey and acclaimed author of “Stalingrad Protocols” will discuss “The Battle for Stalingrad – Soviet and European Perspectives” (the talk will be given in German). Doctoral students and postdocs at the Graduate School will also be presenting their current research projects at a poster session.
The Graduate School is a collaborative venture, coordinated jointly by LMU Munich and the University of Regensburg, and funded by the Excellence Initiative. Its academic program draws on the respective strengths of its two coordinating partners and – unlike comparable programs elsewhere in Europe – covers the entire region of Eastern and Southeastern Europe.
In particular, the Graduate School considers the region predominantly in the context of its links and interactions with other regions, including the rest of Europe, Asia and the US. In taking this approach, the School brings together diverse disciplines and subject areas in innovative ways, opening up new perspectives in East and South East European Studies.
