Mai 2018 den jährlichen gemeinsamen Workshop, auf dem Doktorierende beider Universitäten ihre Projekte vorstellen. Der Workshop hat bewusst keinen thematischen, epochalen oder regionalen Schwerpunkt, da er zum Ziel hat, ungefilterte Einblicke in die aktuellen Forschungsdebatten an beiden Universität zu ermöglichen und eine Gelegenheit zu lockerem Networking zu bieten. Die Vorträge und die Diskussion finden auf Englisch statt.
