We would like to inform you about an upcoming zoom workshop on Poster Design and Presentation with Dr. Imke Lode (ProSciencia, Lübeck) on October 14, 2021 from 9 am to 5 pm, organised by Gender section of GRADE - Graduiertenakademie of Goethe University Frankfurt. Please register for this Zoom workshop until October 8, 2021:

The workshop is open to students and researchers wanting to develop a new research poster from scratch, as well as those that are already working on a poster.

The final posters may be presented on December 2 and 3 during the Conference „Staying with the trouble“. 25 Jahre Forschungsschwerpunkt Geschlechterforschung in Hessen am 2. und 3. Dezember 2021 an der Goethe-Universität und der Universität of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt (submission deadline 5.11.2021. Submission and further information: Courbier[at] 




The one-day, interactive online workshop on the design and presentation of scientific posters addresses GRADE Center Gender members, advanced Master students, doctoral students and post-docs from the social sciences and humanities and will focus on aspects of gender studies - including the choice of images for the resulting posters.


The workshop will take place via Zoom in German and English and will consist of input lessons/a video webinar as well as various application-oriented individual and group exercises with intensive peer and limited trainer feedback.


The workshop covers the following topics:


  • General aspects regarding purpose, audience, story of your poster.
  • Poster content; planning your poster
  • Poster layout and text; poster illustrations
  • Oral presentation skills of your poster, e. g. body language, use of your voice
  • Question & Answer session; "what if ..." and other challenges.


In the workshop, theoretical input will be intertwined with practice and the lessons learned will be put into practice immediately. For this purpose, participants should have a poster/ poster draft available, either digitally on their laptop so that they can continue working on the poster directly, or printouts of illustrations and texts for a poster, which they can integrate into a layout.

The workshop goal is to prepare participants for the creation of scientific posters for an exhibition.

In order to guarantee the interactive quality of the workshop the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 15 participants.

Languages: English/German; workshop material in English
Target groups: M, E, A, P, HS.
Time: Thursday, 14.10.2021, 9-17:00h
