The Humanistic and Theological Doctoral Student Council (HTDR) represents about 250 PhD students from the humanistic and theological faculties. The council meets three times per term to discuss projects and issues of relevance for doctoral students that we want to raise in the boards and councils of the humanistic and theological faculties. In these boards and councils, HTDR has more than 30 representatives who serve the function of guarding the interests of the PhD students and who are entitled to vote. Moreover, the HTDR provides a forum for doctoral students to share their concerns and work on improving their doctoral education experience.
During 2017/18, the HTDR working committee consists of four members: Frida Nilsson, Mikael Novén, Zahra Gharaee, and Lisa-Marie Teubler.
