CALL FOR PAPERS for the international conference for doctoral students

This international conference is intended for all Czech and international doctoral students on full-time or part-time study programmes in the fields of art history, theology, literature, music, and other cultural and historical disciplines. The aim of the conference is to enable students to present the results of their research so far, to introduce new and current insights based on their work on their dissertation, to compare their methodological approaches, and thus to support their research activities.

The theme of the conference was deliberately chosen so as to include the broadest possible circle of doctoral students from humanities study programmes and to provide sufficient scope for choosing a theme and elaborating it. Papers submitted for the conference can deal with related themes in the fields of theology, history, the visual arts, cultural history, literature, music, and so on. They will be assessed primarily on the correct choice of methodical approach in dealing with the individual theme and the specialist quality of their conception. The emphasis will be placed on publishing completely new findings rather than on compilation work.

Conference languages: Czech, English (interpreting services will be provided)
