Working Group 26 The Gray Matter (2012)

The Gray Matter (Die Graue Zelle) was a resource and meeting place for senior doctoral candidates who, upon conclusion of their professional career, were seeking a mental challenge, perhaps because they had been forced due to a difficult financial situation to end their studies in the shortest possible time and they would have now liked to re-visit a scholarly topic at a more leisurely pace and with the added experience from many years of professional experience.

In 2012, a meeting took place to talk about experiences with dissertation advisors, dissertation topics and exposés, practical questions such as using the library, working with the "new" media and the continuing education opportunities offered by MARA.
