The Collaborative Research Centre presents and further advances its activities and results to and with a wider academic public through a number of formats. The most important of these are the annual conferences, the weekly colloquium, individual workshops, panels at international conferences organized by members and/or related to the SFB’s activities, as well as research seminars specifically designed for the Integrated Research Training Group.
The weekly colloquium of the Collaborative Research Centre provides every semester a forum for presentations by external guests as well as by members of the SFB within a tailored thematic framework. Presentations are generally complemented by comments from members of the SFB, helping to create a common ground for discussion between guests, the Collaborative Research Centre, as well as the wider academic public.
Presenting the Collaborative Research Centre’s work to a wider international academic public, mobilizing external expertise and excellence, as well as strengthening internal connection within the SFB, every year one major conference is organized that addresses one specific dimension of the research programme.
Research Seminars & Summer/Winter Schools
Encouraging in-depth joint discussion between the scholars at the SFB, the research seminars and summer/winter schools provide space and opportunity to consider specific conceptual and methodological dimensions of the Collaborative Research Centre’s work. Research seminars commonly address PhD candidates in particular but are also prepared by thematic working groups or individual scholars of the SFB to provide an arena for intellectual exchange and problem-solving.
Lectures & Lecture Series
In addition to lectures lecture series held by the participating institutions of the SFB, the Collaborative Research Centre’s guest researchers present their work and findings during their research stays in specialized lectures.
Workshops & Conferences
In addition to the colloquium and the annual conferences, thematic workshops and conferences are organized by the projects as well as by the thematic working groups or individual members of the SFB.
