On Wednesday, 19 February 2014, the GEAS hosted the end of semester Party of the Department of History and Cultural Studies in the Foyer of the GRaduate School.
After a warm welcome by Verena Blechinger-Talcott, History and Cultural Studies Dean Karin Gludovatz welcomed new members and said goodbye to colleagues of the department leaving the Freie Unviersität. At the end of the ceremony, the Hedwig Hintze Women's Award (Hedwig-Hintze Frauenförderpreis) was given to Britta Frede, who is working as a PostDoc at the Graduate School of Muslim Cultures.
Since 2000, the department gives awards promoting the advancement of women each year. The Award honours the best doctoral thesis by a female young academic.
The evening went on with a small reception. The GEAS was happy to host the Department of History and Cultural Studies this year for the first time, and we are looking forward to many more events to come.
