CITAS and the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America have launched the second edition of the Prize for Outstanding Master's Theses in Area Studies at UR. The prize promotes the development of research and teaching with relevance to area studies in the fields of social sciences, humanities, law and economics.
It explores Europe, America and Global Transformations through an area studies lens. It welcomes contributions from all levels of academia, as well as pieces from outside academia.
The initiative is open to a variety of formats, from peer-reviewed essays to shorter notes and opinion pieces, as well as photography and videos. Find out more here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss contributing.
The first six articles include contributions by Jana Stöxen, who was awarded first prize in the inaugural Regensburg Prize for Outstanding Master's Theses in Area Studies in 2020, and by Verena Baier, who was the first UR doctoral student to participate in the Regensburg-Berkeley Doctoral Exchange Programme. Two essays emerged from the first CITAS conference in 2019, while CITAS Postdoc Joanna Moszczyńska has contributed a report on a workshop held at the ScienceCampus.
