The Graduate School continously invites renowed researchers from all over the world to give a talk and discuss their reseach projects, ideas and visions.
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 was 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 discussed findings, addressed open questions and tackled 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, was designed to integrate ideas and explanations from various fields, i.e. political science, sociology, social psychology and communication science.
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.
ANNUAL BAGSS CONFERENCE
ORGANIZED BY DOCTORAL STUDENTS FOR DOCTORAL STUDENTS
Annually, the doctoral fellows of the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences host an interdisciplinary two day doctoral conference in Bamberg. Each year, the conference revolves around a pressing, current issue that is facing society. It brings together graduate students and leading scholars in their respective fields.
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. Discover the exhibition online.
The Art of Analyzing Real Decisions – Different Approaches to the Psychological Dimension of Political Decision-Making
The goal of the workshop is to take stock of the different ways in which political decision-making can be researched in order to get a better understanding of the dynamics at work.
WHAT PEOPLE KNOW AND THINK: The Role of Attitudes and Information in the Process of Political Decision-Making and Policy Use
The inter-disciplinary workshop, scheduled for March 16 and 17, 2017, will focus on decision-making regarding the design and take-up of policy, especially which role the availability of information and personal or political attitudes play in that process.
LEADERS. CANDIDATES. ACTIVISTS.
The Dynamics of Party Organization
Political parties are important links between civil society and state. Changes in the structure of societies and states have had strong implications for political parties. The workshop was designed to bring together experts from Europe and beyond to discuss recent challenges and developments in the field of party organization and to give young emerging scholars an opportunity to engage in formal and informal discussions with senior scholars.
Qualitative Analysis of Decision-making in the Council of the European Union
The idea for this workshop was quite simple: to bring together new and established researchers working in and around the field of EU studies that use qualitative methods to investigate the role and functioning of EU institutions, in particular the Council of the European Union.
INTERNAL BAGSS CONFERENCE
THE ART OF PRESENTING DOCTORAL RESEARCH
The conference poses the opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss their work. With this inter-disciplinary event graduate students across all four Pillars get together gaining information about each others research and applied methods.
