The Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences (BAGSS) invites contributions to its interdisciplinary PhD Conference on “Inequalities” to be held on September 29-30 in Bamberg, Germany (Call for papers is available pdf here). The conference provides an opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their research with colleagues and leading scholars in the field.

The conference sessions cover a wide range of research areas dealing with inequality across the social sciences, including:

  • migration
  • regions in Europe
  • political participation
  • states in international relations

In each session an invited senior participant will present his or her latest research and provide feedback on the papers presented in the session (see here for a list of confirmed participants). A Best Paper Award will be presented to the author(s) of a paper presented at the conference, selected by the Program/Conference Chairs.
