Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring a funding opportunity from the German Historical Initiative in cooperation with the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University.
The GHI in cooperation with the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University is now offering German and North American scholars the opportunity to develop binational research tandems which link up two academics, one from Germany and one from North America, to work on projects on the history of knowledge, ideally ones which focus on the development of transatlantic perspectives on the issues they examine, and contain productive areas of overlap either in their topics or in their conceptional frameworks. The tandem program presents an excellent opportunity for scholars from Germany and North America to develop their expertise by collaborating closely, to work with additional resources and to make connections with others in their fields. Starting in September 2017, the successful applicants will be in residence at the GHI and invited to participate in GHI activities and events. They will be expected to plan and convene a joint conference or workshop, which will be funded by the GHI, as well as to give a public lecture at Georgetown University. The deadline for applications is August 1, 2016. Please submit your documents in a single PDF file to: firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the application process is on the GHI website.
