The programme's workshops serve to discuss theoretical, methodological, and historiographical problems encountered by researchers and to develop specific skills.

They are planned and organized in a joint effort by individual projects from the Priority Programme.

During the kick-off meeting in February 2016, four workshops were planned, and more will follow in the future. Please click on the headings below for detailed information.
