Goodbye 2020! More achievements
Yes, it has been quite a turbulent year for all of us. However, time does not stand still and eight former Junior Fellows left BIGSAS as alumni. We congratulate Azza Ahmed, Maike Voigt (read about her future plans in January), Manfred Stoppok, Yvette Ngum, Hanna Lena Reich, Katharina Greven, Nikitta Adjirakor and Asaf Augusto (click here). Some of them defended with mask on, some even via distance and without any physical interaction. Respect to all of you who completed their doctoral studies under these challenging circumstances.
In sum, 14 doctoral candidates successfully defended their doctorate in 2020; two more than in 2019. We now count a total of 156 alumni.
2020 is almost over and the BIGSAS administration team enters the holiday season this week. The office remains closed until the beginning of the new year. You can reach us again on January 7th via email. Please keep in mind that the current lockdown lasts until January 11th and we are therefore mainly working from our home offices.
Season greetings from us to you!
