Multidisciplinary Research Workshops 2014-2015

MRWpageThe core of the Max Weber Programme’s multidisciplinary activities are the  Thematic Research Groups . These Groups are organized on an interdisciplinary basis and bring together Fellows from different disciplines who are working on a similar range of issues.

The Groups have the opportunity to organize one or two workshops each (either two half days or one full day), either in conjunction with a MW Lecturer (Master Classes) or another visiting expert (MWP Events by MW Fellows). 

The Master Classes are usually held on the Thursday following the Max Weber Lecture between 10:00 and 12:00 in the MWP Common Room unless stated otherwise in the programme.
