During a discussion week, we’ll read and discuss a specific topic. You do not have to visit all meetings, and can decide which you’d like to visit, but please register in advance. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to visit as many possible! Within the class, we can also look at short sections of your work (texts, presentations, etc), for feedback and review.

Please note:
Due to a large number of very short-term cancellations and unannounced absences in the recent past, we must remind again that registrations for workshops of the Graduate Academy are binding. Cancellations are only acceptable under imperative circumstances, and must be announced as early as possible. If this is not the case, workshop places that have become available cannot be given to individuals on the waiting list or the workshop cannot be cancelled in due course in the case of low demand. In this case high cancellation fees occur. Under these circumstances the offer of the Graduate Academy cannot be held up in the medium term.

Registration mode

The enrolment is binding, participants cannot unsubscribe themselves.
