In May 2017, the first edition of the tri-national doctoral school was organised in Saarbrücken, Germany, with the participation of three universities. The following blogpost is a report of the event with some personal reflections.
The tri-national doctoral school offers a platform for doctoral candidates from Germany, France, Luxembourg and other countries to meet regularly and to discuss together topics related to international and European history of the twentieth century. The doctoral school has been operational since 1st January 2017. About twenty PhD candidates from various academic disciplines have signed up so far, all of whom are working on transnational projects related to contemporary political, social, or cultural history.
