Stuttgart Postgraduate Seminar in Medical History

The Stuttgart Advanced Training Seminar takes place every year in spring. It is aimed at young researchers in the history of medicine and related disciplines. The topic is determined by the participants of the last seminar. The final program will be carried out by the Stuttgart Institute together with two participants who have decided to co-organize the next seminar.

The training seminars are designed in such a way that the given topic should be developed jointly by the group of participants. It is an interdisciplinary forum for young scholars, whose central concerns are the exchange and substantive discussion of the topic of the conference, primarily in a historical perspective. The focus is therefore on innovative methodological approaches, new questions and ideas, and less on perfectly elaborated presentations. Thus, the conference also serves as a networking opportunity for scholars at an early stage of their careers.

The training seminar will be funded by the Stuttgart Institute, which covers the costs of travel (DB 2nd class), meals and overnight stays for all participants. Since we are limited by space and finances, we must ask for your understanding that if we receive more applications than there are places available, a selection will be made.

The call for applications will take place in the fall of the previous year. Registrations will be made with appropriate topic proposals by the beginning of the year. Excluded are persons who are already habilitated.
