We invite you to participate in the Graduate School of Humanities (HUMA) Autumn School - a student conference, which will take place on November 24–November 25 at the University of Tartu Library.

The conference will be held both in Estonian and English.

Participants have a unique opportunity to introduce their research topic with a 15-minute presentation. This will of course help with the preparations for dissertation defense and offers the experience of preparing for and delivering an academic presentation. Participants will also receive valuable feedback about the work from professors and doctoral students of various disciplines. First year master’s students are welcome to participate with a poster presentation, which can also be based on your bachelor’s thesis.
