More than 50 Ph.D. students are currently researching at the ZZF. They collaborate in departmental work and discuss the progress of their own work in a colloquium. There are also workshops on theory and methodology, along with events on the career prospects of historians.
Internationally regarded experts give master classes on select topics, discussing shared aspects of individual dissertations, such as oral history or the history of the media. Once a year the doctoral candidates at the ZZF organize their own Young Scholars Conference, the Potsdam postgraduate forum, devoted to discussing ongoing dissertations and scholarly networks.
