In her introductory remarks, the initiator of the exhibition, Katrin Bernsdorff, who is responsible for marketing and communication at BAGSS, outlined the development of the project from an initial idea to a well thought-out presentation of five female and four male doctoral students from all over the world, which is structured in three parts: The profiles each include a large-sized black-and-white portrait, a short outline of the dissertation project, and a brief description of the person.
During the opening of the exhibition, Prof. Dr. Hans-Günther Roßbach, LIfBi Director, addressed the cooperation between the LIfBi and BAGSS, which jointly offer numerous programs for junior researchers. Since its foundation in 2010, BAGSS has helped to create optimal conditions for learning, research, and career development of highly gifted doctoral candidates in the fields of sociology, psychology, and political as well as educational sciences.
Until recently, the exhibition had been located at the university site on Feldkirchenstraße. Now the profiles will be exhibited at the Wilhelmspost for a period of roughly six months.
