The Maurice Halbwachs Summer Institute is open to doctoral students and postdocs in the Humanities and Social Sciences from Germany as well as abroad. An interest in interdisciplinary work is expected to create an atmosphere of productive intellectual exchange. Applicants with research topics resonating with the theme will profit most from participation.

For applicants from outside Göttingen with well documented need, it may be possible to offer financial support.

Discussions at the Summer Institute will be mainly held in English as well as German.

Tuition: 100 €

The Summer Institute is supported by third-party funding. The program includes a reader, a welcome and a farewell dinner, lunches, as well as a thematically dovetailing excursion in the environs for all participants.

The following application materials are to be submitted electronically:

  • Application letter detailing the reasons for desiring to participate
  • 1-page exposé of the applicant’s doctoral or postdoctoral project
  • Curriculum Vitae

Deadline: April 17, 2016
Decisions will be mailed out in the middle of May.

Inquiries may be directed at Annekathrin Krieger or Prof. Dr. Regina Bendix or Prof. Dr. Rebekka Habermas
