Culture in American History: Transatlantic Perspectives
May 29 – June 1, 2003
Call for Papers (Only applies to North America)
The German Historical Institute and the Friends of the German Historical Institute are pleased to announce the 2003 session of the annual Young Scholars Forum.
Designed to bring together American and European Ph.D. candidates for a weekend of critical debate, the forum will take place from May 29 to June 1, 2003, in Washington, D.C. The Forum offers promising young scholars the opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as to distinguished scholars from American Universities. Applicants should be working in a field of American history from the colonial period to the present.
The focus of the 2003 Forum is culture in American history and in transatlantic relations. As we have already selected the European candidates for this program, we strongly encourage applications related to the following fields:
New Approaches to Immigration History
The History of Cultural Transfer
Dissent and Deviance in Colonial and Modern America
America and the British Empire
History and Film
A list of the selected European presenters and their topics is available at the GHI website: www.ghi-dc.org
Participants must submit a paper of twenty type-written pages by April 15, 2003. In order to promote a lively exchange of ideas, papers will be distributed in advance; instead of a conventional presentation of one’s own work, each participant will comment briefly on a colleague’s paper.
Applicants will be notified by February 2003. The German Historical Institute provides lodging and some meals. Travel assistance is available upon request.
A complete application will include the following materials:
A curriculum vitae.
A brief description of the paper (not to exceed two pages, double-spaced).
A formal letter of recommendation.
Applicants must submit their materials by January 15, 2003.
Please send applications to:
