Call for Papers: Graduate Conference 2021

Event Label
Organisational Units

The Graduate Conference aims at stronger visibility and integration of doctoral candidates at the Academy of Fine Arts.

At the graduate conference, advanced doctoral/Ph.D. candidates will give a public presentation about their dissertation/Ph.D. project or an aspect of it. Every presenter has a 25-minute time slot for the talk (incl. presentation, videos, etc.) and the same amount of time available for a discussion. A colleague of the Academy, who is not supervising the respective Ph.D. student, will moderate the discussion and start the discussion with a first question. Each talk will be accompanied by a discussant (doctoral-level colleague), who continues the discussion with their comments. The presentations can be held in German or English. The conference will take place all day.

The presentation should provide an insight into the current work on the dissertation/the Ph.D. project. Thus, please focus on issues relevant to the development of your dissertation/Ph.D. project. These could be questions regarding your methodological considerations as well as a specific way of posing a problem within one part or chapter of your thesis/project.

The Graduate Conference 2021 takes place on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, in the newly renovated Anatomiesaal of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

We are looking forward to your application until October 12, 2021, via our submission platform .
