Brown Bag Workshops

The Brown Bag Workshops at Frankfurt School serve as a platform for internal and external researchers to present and discuss their research ideally in a stage of “work in progress”. The Brown Bag workshops are as a rule on Mondays and Thursdays at lunchtime from 12:20 until 13:10 p.m., so that the event will not interfere with teaching obligations or lectures. The presentations last between 30 and 45 minutes.

The remaining time can be used for questions and discussion.
