The German Historical Institute in Washington, the Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University, and the Conference Group for Central European History are pleased to announce the Sixth Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar in Germany History. The conference is once again supported by the German-American Academic Council and will convene in Berlin from April 26 to 29, 2000.
The seminar is meant to bring together young scholars from Germany and North America who are nearing the completion of their doctoral degrees. We plan to invite eight doctoral students from each side of the Atlantic to discuss their research projects. The discussions will be based on papers submitted in advance of the conference. The languages of this seminar will be German and English. We shall cover travel costs and lodging expenses. The theme of this conference will be "Germany in the Imperial Age, 1850-1914."
We are now accepting applications from doctoral students whose work falls principally in this era and who will not have finished their degrees before June 2000. Applications should include a short (2-3 pp.) project description, a curriculum vitae, and a letter of reference from the major advisor.
Please send applications by December 1, 1999, to address below.
