The Doctoral Program in Literary Studies (DPL) at the University of Basel offers doctoral students in literary studies and related fields an intensively supervised, interphilological doctoral program. More
Selected courses enable students to look beyond their own discipline in order to discover common interests, broaden their professional horizons, and establish social contacts. These include recurring doctoral colloquia, study and networking days, and retreats. In addition, once a year, the doctoral program funds a Seminar in Cultural Practice, which provides insights into various aspects of the literary market. More
Each year, the Doctoral Program in Literary Studies awards up to three one-year start-up grants. These allow promising young researchers to develop their dissertation project and apply for follow-up funding at appropriate places. More
