Das Institut richtet seit mehr als zehn Jahren jedes Semester die Research Talks aus, im Zuge derer interne Kolleg*innen sowie nationale und internationale Forscher*innen unserer Fachrichtung ihre aktuelle Arbeit vorstellen. Die Research Talks werden von Dana Grohs organisiert und finden in der Regel im Institutsgebäude Währinger Straße 29 statt.

Im Sommersemester 2024 können wir Christian Baden (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel), Anja Bechmann (Aarhus University, Dänemark) und Lars Willnat (Syracuse University, USA) als externe Vortragende begrüßen. Zudem wird unsere Kollegin Katharine Sarikakis Einblicke in ihre derzeitige Forschung geben.

Das Poster für die Veranstaltungen im Sommersemester 2024 wird in Kürze verfügbar sein.


In den vergangenen Semestern hatten wir bereits einige international renommierte Kolleg*innen zu Gast, die Präsentationen zu unterschiedlichsten Themen und Forschungsbereichen gehalten haben. Eine Auswahl an Gastvortragenden und Vortragstiteln finden Sie – alphabetisch gelistet – untenstehend.
