The Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies is delighted to welcome Prof. Dr. Elizabeth Dunn (Bloomington, IN) for a lecture in its lunchtime "Colloquium" on May 19, 2016 in Regensburg.

From May to June 2016 Elizabeth Dunn is Visiting Fellow of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg.

All members of the Graduate School and all members of the Universities in Munich and Regensburg are warmly invited to participate.
