The German Historical Institute in Washington, DC and the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University are pleased to announce the Eighth Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar in German History. The 2002 seminar will take place at the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung in Potsdam on May 1-4, 2002.
The seminar will bring together young scholars from Europe and North America who are nearing completion of their doctoral degrees. We plan to invite eight doctoral students from each side of the Atlantic to discuss their research projects. We welcome proposals on any aspect of German history during the years 1945 to 1990. Doctoral students who are working on comparative topics, projects in related fields -- such as art history, legal history, and the history of science -- or on the history of Austria or German-speaking Switzerland are also encouraged to apply. The discussions will be based on papers (in German or English) submitted in advance of the conference. The seminar will be conducted bilingually, in German and English. The organizers will cover travel and lodging expenses.
We are now accepting applications from doctoral students whose dissertations are at an advanced stage but who will be granted their degrees after June 2002. Applications should include a short description of the dissertation project (no more than 2 single-spaced pages), a curriculum vitae, and a confidential letter of reference from the dissertation advisor. All materials may be submitted in either English or German. Please ask your advisor to mail or fax (202-483-3430) his or her letter of reference directly to the Institute by the deadline. Questions may be directed to Dr. Richard Wetzell by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications must be postmarked by December 1, 2001 and should be sent to the address below.
We request that all North American applicants mail us hard copies of their applications (just make sure they are postmarked by December 1). If you are applying from Europe, you may email your application to email@example.com or fax it to us at (202) 483-3430 to guard against mail delays. Please also send us a hard copy via airmail. If you have questions about the receipt of your application, Ms. Thomas can be reached at the above email or by phone at (202) 387-3355.
