15.09.2016: CIRCLE PhD Seminar

An obligatory part of PhD program at the Virtual college CIRCLE International (housed at the University of Vitez, BH) is the completion of oral comprehensive examination and defence of the thesis proposal in front of the committee. This year the CIRCLE PhD-Seminar took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which offered participants a great travelling opportunity to Balkans.

Alina Pukhovskaya (CV) visited the PhD-Seminar in Vitez and shared some impressions from the trip: "Bosnia and Herzegovina due to its geographical location had been repeatedly involved in major historical events such as the World War I (assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo) and the World War II (multi-ethnic resistance groups lead by Josip Broz Tito). Also it had been under the influence of different empires Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian and never lost itself but adjusted, taking the best out of the new cultures. However, the Bosnian War (19921995) caused so much pain and destruction that up to today every detail brings back the memories of the terror. Both photos are taken in the same city Mostar, which combines beautiful (renovated) old city and bombed business center."
