We are doctoral and post-doctoral researchers who conduct research on diasporas and meet regularly in the international doc.kolleg as part of the Research Network 'Diaspora Studies'. Our group includes research assistants and fellows of the FSU Jena as well as associated members from other (non)European universities (Project Participants de). We come from Korea, Palestine, Turkey and Germany, and speak German or English in the doc.kolleg. In the Kolleg we present the developments of our research, discuss important texts on diaspora research, organize joint events and work on joint publications. The doc.kolleg is supervised by Link Prof. Sebastian Henn de and Link Prof. Michael Wermke de and takes place both during the lecture period and the semester break. We cordially invite junior researchers who share our interest in diaspora research to participate. Since the Kolleg is digitally transmitted, participation is possible at any time without any problems. Please feel free to contact the doc.kolleg coordinator Stefan van der Hoek.
