PhD Colloquium

Doctoral Colloquium ‘Speaking of God in Times of Anxiety’

Location : Online

ETF’s annual doctoral colloquium is an essential part of our PhD program. Students meet their fellow students and professors, prepare for exams and present their research. ETF professors and internationally recognized visiting scholars give public lectures and public defenses of dissertations take place.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the colloquium will be organized online and it will be a lighter version than usual with focus on the most essential elements including student presentations, doctoral exams and PhD defenses. Only the PhD defenses are public events (see schedule below).

You are welcome to follow one or more of the PhD defenses online. You can find the livestream via the URLs below.
