Description The first objective is to give PhD students from the universities in Czechoslovakia the opportunity to present their research and to formulate questions themselves that they are struggling with during the PhD process. The questions and bottlenecks are discussed during the discussion, which is led by two specialists for literature, linguistics and translation. Two experts have promised: prof. Yves T´Sjoen, Ph.D. (Ghent University and Masaryk University) (literature) and doc. Mgr. Marketa Štefková, Ph.D. (Comenius University of Bratislava) (linguistics and translation studies). We deliberately choose one specialist from the Low Countries and one from the region. Secondly, it is intended that the PhD students and master's students get to know each other (better) and especially get to know each other's research with a view to being able to collaborate in the future on publications and teaching and research on Dutch in Czechoslovakia. The master's students can get inspiration for formulating their research request. Thirdly, a methodological seminar will be held, devoted to research in linguistics, translation and literature, which will give the PhD students insight into the methodology of research in inpatient Dutch studies and on the other hand they will gain theoretical and practical experience with the Czechoslovakian methodology of PhD research. Apart from the Department of Dutch in Olomouc, the other PhD students are usually supervised by a Germanist / General linguist as a promoter and have little or no opportunity during their PhD training to participate in a methodological seminar devoted exclusively to the Dutch subject. That is why this seminar is extremely important for the participants. It is also the intention that the PhD students publish their contribution. The Berichte und Materialien section of the Brünner Beiträge zur Germanistiek und Nordistik is reserved for this. Finally, the mini conference will be open to the other MA students of the department in Brno, but also to those interested in participating universities, but no budget will be requested for these students.
