The Start of an Exciting Year 2018

IRTG Diversity and Trier Canadian Studies Centre Welcome Numerous Visiting Scholars
  • Prof. Ursula Lehmkuhl welcoming Dr. Kati Dlaske
The IRTG Diversity and the Canadian Studies Centre at the University of Trier (ZKS) are very much looking forward to an exciting first half of 2018. The two collaborating institutions are welcoming 10 visiting scholars from three different countries and many different disciplines to Trier and Saarbrücken. Besides conducting their own research, exchanges and collaborations with the IRTG’s PhD candidates will be a vital part of each visitor’s stay in Germany.
