In summer term, the Equal Opportunities Committee organizes a series of roundtable discussions on “Pursuing an academic career in Germany”. The series is composed of three events, which will be bilingual and 100% virtual, and will offer the possibility of open exchange with experts and experienced researchers. The guests on the board will start with a short statement (5 to 10 minutes), and then the moderator will enhance a discussion between the members of the (virtual) board and very soon the whole group of participants. The aim is to offer a safe space for both speakers and participants to share and discuss their own experiences, questions, doubts and problems.


The first event on “Communication in German academia” is mostly directed at international doctoral students, though not exclusively. This session will address linguistic and pragmatic conventions and communicative hierarchies in German academia. Thanks to the speakers’ international backgrounds, they will be able to share and compare their own experiences in various environments and open a dialogue about German and international research practices. Their contributions aim at creating a space for exchange on the challenges of an international doctorate and career planning, where participants are welcome to join and contribute with their own personal stories.
