The German Historical Institute Washington (GHI) is now accepting applications for its long-term visiting fellow program. The fellowships will be granted for a period of 6 to 12 months in the following thematic areas:
- History of Family and Kinship
- History of Knowledge
- History of Migration
- History of Race & Ethnicity
- History of Religion and Religiosity
- History of the Americas
The identified thematic areas are intended to be broad in scope. Applicants are encouraged to identify up to two areas for which they wish to submit their application. Please be sure to make clear in the application why your research project fits within the identified area as well as why the GHI would be a good place for you to work on your research project. Additionally, the proposed research projects should clearly make use of historical methods and engage with the relevant historiography related to the specific thematic area.
The fellowship will preferably start in September 2023. The Fellow is expected to be in residence in Washington, DC, and participate in GHI activities and events. The Fellow will have the opportunity to make use of the resources in the Washington metropolitan area, including the Library of Congress and the National Archives, while pursuing his or her own research. Travel within the U.S. to work in archives and libraries will also be possible. Candidates doing original research for a dissertation or a second book project will be given preference.
The fellowship is open to both doctoral and postdoctoral scholars based in North America and Europe. The monthly stipend is € 2,000 for doctoral students and € 3,400 for postdoctoral scholars. In addition, fellowship recipients based in Europe will receive reimbursement for their round-trip airfare to the U.S.
