The conference will bring together 60–80 senior and junior scholars of the field. Away from the hectic bustle of large-scale conferences it will offer unique opportunities for detailed discussions and networking. The academic programme will be completed by a social programme including a tour of the 150-year-old Bavarian Parliament and of one of Munich's world-class museums, and a visit to one of Munich's most famous beer gardens. more
