Since 2011 the Faculty of Historical and Cultural Studies at the University of Vienna supports the international PhD student exchange ‘Princeton – Oxford – Vienna Graduate Exchange’. The cooperation consists of annual meetings of students working on late antique, byzantinist and early medieval topics. The exchange is headed by internationally renowned researchers from various fields of historical studies.
The goal is to foster exchange between young prospective academics from various intellectual traditions. After all, the way we develop our research questions is considerably influenced by our academic environment. Thus, the PhD students are given the chance to present and discuss their work in this framework.
