December 6-9, 2018
Sofitel Kurfürstendamm Berlin
Like in the previous events of this biennial conference series, members of the CGES both from Bielefeld University and from St. Petersburg State University took part and were very active in the 2018 conference.
With eight participants from the CGES, including five students of MA ‘Studies in European Societies’ Sayana Tsyrennadmitova, Olga Gerasimova, Anastasia Ivanova, Aliya Belokhodzhaeva, and Sofia Shevchenko, the Centre was one of the largest delegations taking part in the conference. Members of the CGES of all academic career levels were active as paper givers both in the general and in the graduate conference, as host in the graduate conference, as poster presenters, as forum participants, and as discussants. In addition to attending and contributing to the conference programme, the CGES benefited from extensive networking to initiate and concretize cooperation activities with other centres of the DAAD centres programme. The CGES also took part in the subsequent Centre Directors’ Meeting on December 9 in Berlin.
