Who We Are

Judith Müller
“The Doctoral Program gave me a connection to literary studies which, in my subject, is often lacking at small institutes in German-speaking countries. The interphilological orientation promised openness even to more exotic subjects such as Hebrew literature and at the same time corresponded to my interdisciplinary interests.”

— Judith Müller, doctoral student, Jewish Studies

Melanie Küng
“The Doctoral Program was of inestimable help to my doctoral studies – from my start-up grant and support for conference travel to the finishing touches on my dissertation.”

— Dr. des. Melanie Küng, alumna, Assistance to the Scientific Management, Institute for European Global Studies, University of Basel

Philipp Schweighauser, Chair Steering Committee
“The Doctoral Program offers many advantages. What I find most important are the many networking opportunities, for example at the annual retreats. Another big plus is the funding opportunities for guest lectures, workshops and courses offered by members.”

— Prof. Dr. Philipp Schweighauser, Chair of the Steering Committee
