Due to uncertainty with COVID-19 restrictions in Estonia, the exact way how event takes place will be communicated in October. Most likely the event will take place in a hybrid form: people who can join is face-to-face, are welcome to come to Tartu. Others who cannot do it, will join virtually.

The doctoral school is open to MA and PhD students and there is no registration fee. We are warmly welcoming students of cultural studies, Japanese studies, Asian studies, economy and international relations.
