PhD students of Early Modern History in Graz

On June 24-26, 2021, Karl-Franzens-Universität held a workshop for PhD students of Early Modern History. The aim of the workshop is to connect early-stage researchers and their supervisors in the field of Early Modern History. The workshop which is hosted each year by a different participating university city occurred this year in the city of Graz, Austria. Papers about their dissertation projects were given by participants from Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, and Bulgaria.

Czech Republic was represented by two speakers who are PhD students at our Department of History: Andrea Štěpánková and Stanislav Luska, both of them students of professor Tomáš Knoz. Andrea Štěpánková gave a paper on Moravian Anabaptists and Nobility in Tandem: Social and Economic Interaction; Stanislav Luska presented his research with the title In Service of the Dynasty. The Dietrichstein Family between the Imperial and Spanish Habsburg Courts. Both talks were followed by a lively discussion.

The conference programme was supplemented with free time and networking activities. Not only did the participants get valuable feedback on their PhD projects, but they also made useful contacts with researchers within the field. By connecting academic departments, students, and professors, these networks have a greatly positive influence on international cooperation, an essential part of modern scientific work.
