The Berlin "International Forum for Doctoral Candidates in East European 
Art History“ is already going in the fourth round. Previous editions of 
the forum have shown us that young scholars from all over the world 
working in this field have a strong need for a direct, lively exchange 
of specific conceptual issues and methodological problems of art 
historical “area studies” of Eastern Europe across the different epochs. 
With the forum we have initiated a platform open for these purposes. The 
annual meetings are intended to offer opportunity and space for a 
continuous exchange of ideas and experiences, for making contacts and 
bringing together expertise. Current research projects – and as well 
their progress and modifications over the years – are documented on the 
forum’s website 
). In this way and with a Facebook group 
(https://www.facebook.com/groups/773095506060350/ ) it is possible to 
build networks besides the annual forums.

Doctoral candidates engaging themselves in a topic of art history (or a 
neighboring discipline) of Eastern Europe are cordially invited – 
explicitly also those who have come to the Forum in Berlin in previous 
years. If you would like to participate, please send us your abstract. 
We ask you to outline concisely the subject and main question of your 
PhD project. Please discuss your methodological and analytical approach 
in a separate paragraph and name problems and question you would like to 
address. Dependent on the focuses resulting from the proposals submitted 
we will select six to eight contributions for presentations (20 min). 
All other participants will be given the opportunity to present in brief 
themselves and their topics (5 min). Important to us is that we will 
have plenty of time for discussion and exchange.

Please submit your proposal

- of ca. 4000 characters (including blanks)

- in a file format that can be processed (no pdf!)

- indicating your name, working title of the dissertation project, 
affiliation, e-mail
