ASLAA e.V. would like to invite you to its very first online roundtable titled “Pursuing a PhD in American Studies.” Are you thinking about taking your studies further than your M.A. degree? Maybe you’re not sure whether that’s the right path for you? Is it possible to work while completing a PhD? What scholarship opportunities are there? These are all important questions to consider when thinking about completing a dissertation.

We also want to take this opportunity to reach out to students currently thinking (or perhaps being unsure) about pursuing a follow-up degree to let you know that, while some aspects of the coming winter term might still be in the balance, it is clear that the semester will take place and that we will enroll a new cohort of MA students.

UPDATE: Picador Chair in the Summer Term 2020

We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the Picador Chair will have to remain empty for the summer term of 2020. After a lot of careful thought, we decided that this is the most sensible choice in the light of the still unfolding events. While this means that no creative writing workshop will be offered this semester, we will be able to offer LC-III and the Lehramt module “US Popular Culture and American Literature” (-1701), albeit in a slightly different form than usual.
