Research Foci

Between 2013 and 2017 there were four Early Career Research Groups within GSGG, each led by two postdocs. Their research projects were situated within four interdisciplinary research foci, which represent the most prominent areas of the humanities in Göttingen:

These foci were manifested in diverse research activities, pursued through various institutes, research centres, and third-party-funded projects.

Each group contained up to five associated doctoral students, whose dissertation projects were situated within the corresponding research area. The doctoral students had workspace in the graduate school and could work physically and conceptually close to one another and with the postdocs.

The Early Career Research Groups met regularly at colloquia, and held lecture/seminar series, summer schools, and workshops.
