Writing Workshop for Graduate Students

Writing Workshops for Graduate Students


The Research Network on Military, War and Gender/Diversity (MKGD), together with the Bundeswehr Center for Military History and Social Sciences (ZMSBw) and the Chair of Military History at the University of Potsdam, plans to offer a writing workshop for doctoral students every two years. The aim of the writing workshop is to support doctoral students. Their German or English-language essay manuscripts on the topic of military, war and violence (and, if possible, gender/difference) in the broadest sense, which are intended for publication in a national or international journal, are to be discussed. The period covered can range from the early modern period to the present.

Interested doctoral candidates are invited to submit a call for papers with a two-page synopsis and a short CV.

The selected manuscripts will be sent to the participants of the writing workshop in advance. During the writing workshop itself, the manuscripts will only be briefly presented by the authors, then commented on by a scientist invited to the workshop and then discussed together on the question of how they could be revised for successful publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Travel costs (flight or second-class rail travel) and hotel costs will be covered.
