Aims, contents and method of the course

The three Working Groups belonging to Human Geography and Applied Geography jointly organize this Dissertationsseminar. The purpose of the Seminar is to establish and support a culture of peer review and collaboration, to source perspectives from throughout Human Geography and Spatial Planning, and to "institutionalize" the progression of dissertation research. Rather than a formal, frontal presentation, the Dissertationsseminar is more like a workshop and interactive round-table discussion.

General setting:
- One or two students per seminar,
- ca. 60 minutes per student (25-30 min presentation, 10-15 min comments and suggestions from the discussant, 20 min questions and comments from the audience)
- Postdocs and master students are explicitly invited and welcomed
- Invited discussants are asked to prepare presentations, summarizing the strengths of the PhD project, identifying potentials for improvement and offering other advice.
