Online Workshop: The Floor Is Yours! Academic Presentations in English

This event aims at doctoral researchers and postdoctoral researchers from all areas.


Successful academic presentations in English generate interest in your work, help you to network with colleagues and boost your professional profile. In this interactive two-day workshop you will get first-hand experience in mastering the challenges of presenting your research in English, and develop strategies for self-confident, competent and successful research presentations.

We will first focus on your profiles (personality, presentation style) and will then turn to the building-blocks of a presentation: verbal codes (academic diction, professional jargon), body language, voice, media and performance. We will, of course, put theory into practice and give you the chance to deliver a short presentation, which we will then discuss together. You can work on current projects, talks and presentations!


Dr phil Maik Goth teaches workshops on academic English, research management and communication skills. His seminars are based on his extensive experience as international scholar, academic author, editor, peer-reviewer and university lecturer, and are tailored to the personal needs and professional demands of young researchers. The second edition of his monograph Monsters and the Poetic Imagination in "The Faerie Queene" was published in May 2019 by Manchester University Press.
