Conference Experience and Publishing Opportunities
IPP members benefit from numerous opportunities to participate in international conferences and summer schools organised within the IPP’s cooperative networks.
Annual summer schools and conferences in the stimulating atmosphere of the beautiful castle of Rauischholzhausen or in the old town of Heidelberg promise intense academic discussions and help in forming life-long friendships with peers from other parts of Germany or the world.
The IPP takes part in several multilateral networks (Hermes, ESSCS, PhDnet) and maintains numerous bilateral partnerships. It is strongly committed to promoting the internationalisation of postgraduate education in Germany.
Travel grants and research funding open further possibilities and allow IPP members to present their projects and research on conferences around the world. Thus, they may use all research facilities necessary to ensure the quality of their PhD.
Several volumes of collected essays on seminal topics in literary and cultural studies have emanated from the IPP, bringing together contributions from renowned scholars and doctoral researchers. Find a list of IPP publications here.
Doctoral researchers’ contributions to conferences and symposia may be considered for publication in the events’ proceedings and thus offer IPP members manifold opportunities for first academic publications.
Further publishing opportunities are provided by the GGK online journal KULT_online which invites doctoral researchers’ reviews on recent publications and On_Culture, a peer-reviewed academic eJournal edited by doctoral researchers, postdocs and professors working at the GCSC.
Accompanying courses in academic writing provide excellent supervision and help to gain an expertise in the various academic genres that should be part of a convincing publishing portfolio.
