Consultation hours: Please note that I will be on sabbatical in the summer term 2018.
This means that I will not be teaching any courses, and am generally not taking on any new supervision and examination commitments before the autumn. I will of course continue to be available for students whose doctoral research projects and diploma / MA theses I am already supervising. I will also be conducting those final examinations that have already been agreed upon and offering office hours spread out over the summer term; the dates of the latter will be announced on my homepage.
If you have questions or want to make an appointment, please contact <judith.brockmann@univie.ac.at>.
