NOW _RESEARCH TALKS
THE GRADUATE SCHOOL'S ONLINE MAGAZINE
With the new online magazine we want to create a source of inspiration on how careers can be shaped and research projects can be brought to life. Leveraging vocational biographies of respected researchers and personalities as well as those of recent graduates, the articles and interviews focus on the researcher behind the project. Read up on exiting background stories and leaf through interviews, essays, graduation talks and insights into research projects.
When Knowledge Becomes Research
Our member Diana Klose has co-developed an app in the framework of her doctoral thesis. The IQ-App tests users in three areas: IQ, general knowledge and personality. She aims use the anonymously collected data to gain insight into what adults' knowledge is made up of. In an interview, Diana explains the (thought-) process of creating an app, how technology plays a significant role in her scientific research and gives us a preview of preliminary results.
LECTURE SERIES ON POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Explaining Political Behaviour and Identity: Macro- and Micro-Level Perspectives
To tackle the broad and important core questions that underlie the concepts of political participation and representation, the lecture series is designed to bring together leading experts from Europe and the US from both political science and psychology. Over the course of 3 days, from May 23 to May 25, we will discuss findings, address open questions and tackle the challenges of transdisciplinary research in a set of lectures, workshops and discussion rounds.
Populist Attitudes in Comparative Perspective
In recent years scholars increasingly devoted their intention to describing and analyzing populist attitudes, voters and parties. Yet, in many instances these insights remained specific to the distinctive fields of research. The workshop, scheduled on June 13th 2018, is designed to integrate ideas and explanations from various fields, i.e. political science, sociology, social psychology and communication science.
04. ANNUAL BAGSS CONFERENCE

20 - 21 September, 2017
One key characteristic of today’s societies is their diversity: People with different cultural, ethnical, socioeconomic, educational, occupational, political, religious, and demographic backgrounds meet and interact – sometimes voluntarily, sometimes because they have to.

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL INSIGHT
THE RESEARCH TALKS
Researchers describe their Path and Challenges in their Career
Researchers from all over the world give interviews to describe their research topics as well as talk about situations and aspects that shaped their life as researchers and let them to the current point of their career.
IN ESSENCE. PERSONALITIES OF RESEARCH
The Graduate School wants to provide a framework for research realization and furthermore aims to promote the works and the researchers themselves. To showcase their work, we developed the concept of a research exhibition where the individually designed research portfolios are featured next to the portraits. The exhibition was successfully on display three times and is now availiable online.
ECPR WINTER SCHOOL
METHODS AND TECHNIQUES
The Graduate School is privileged to host the ECPR Winter School in Methods and Techniques since 2015. One of the academic convenors, Benoît Rihoux states that the Winter School is designed to be all-encompassing. He shares some insights and his vision in an interview.
