IKOS PhD Midway-seminar:"Sacred heritage: Secularisation, sacralisation, and the production of heritage in contemporary Japan"
We want to invite you to an open midway-seminar with our PhD-fellow in Japanese Studies Morgaine Theresa Wood. To comment on the candidates work, we have invited Professor Christoph Brumann from Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg.
The midway evaluation is organized in two parts and starts with a 2-hour public seminar, followed by a closed meeting.
The purpose of the midway evaluation is to assess the progress of the PhD project at a point when it is still possible to make small or substantial changes. In general, we want to know how the candidate is doing, how much work is done, and what is left, and which problems might arise, if they haven't already. At the same time, we want to give attention to the great important scholarly work performed by junior scholars at the Department.
