EEGA Colloquium

The Colloquium is for researchers, affiliates, students and interested guests involved in the fields of Global, Transregional and Eastern European Studies, and all neighboring disciplines. The Colloquium serves as a hub and melting pot for research in Leipzig – Halle – Jena, crossing borders and strengthening the network between the various academic and research institutions in the region. Here, researchers from EEGA’s partners, EEGA’s own Research Areas and holders of the EEGA Fellowship enjoy the limelight of an expert forum to present and discuss activities, projects, strategies and plans.

The Colloquium incorporates events at EEGA’s partner institutions, thus offering a stage with a broader audience and building up momentum for development and outreach within an overarching framework. The Colloquium takes place once or twice every month.

Register with an email to leibniz-eega@leibniz-ifl.de with the title of the event, your name, institution and your email address. For some events, registration with the host institution is required. The Colloquium will take place online. Upon registration you will receive a link with access information.
