MEDIEVAL HISTORY SEMINAR
German Historical Institute, Washington, D.C.
October 24-26, 2003
The German Historical Institute is pleased to announce the third Medieval History Seminar, to be held in Washington, D.C., from October 24 to 26, 2003. The seminar is designed to bring together American and German Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2001-2002) in medieval history for a weekend of scholarly discussion and collaboration. They will have the opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as to distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.
Conveners for the 2003 seminar will be Professors Michael Borgolte (Humboldt-Universitšt zu Berlin), Caroline W. Bynum (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, N.J.), Johannes Fried (Universitšt Frankfurt), and Patrick J. Geary (University of California, Los Angeles).
The Medieval History Seminar welcomes proposals from all areas of medieval history. Participation is not limited to historians working on German history or German-speaking regions of Europe. Nor is a particular epoch or methodological approach preferred. Applications from neighboring disciplines are welcome if the projects have a distinct historical focus.
Papers and discussions will be conducted both in German and English. Successful applicants must be prepared to submit a paper of approximately twenty typewritten pages by September 12, 2003. They also are expected to serve as commentator for one other paper presented in the seminar.
The GHI will cover the travel and lodging expenses of the participants.
Applications are accepted in German or English and should include:
a curriculum vitae (including address and e-mail)
a description of the proposed paper (4-5 pages, double-spaced)
one letter of recommendation
The deadline for submission is May 1, 2003.
Please send applications to the address below.
For further information, please contact Dr. Christoph Strupp, GHI, via e-mail.
Reports on previous meetings of the MHS have been published in the GHI Bulletins No. 30 (April 2002) and 32 (April 2003, forthcoming), available on-line at http://www.ghi-dc.org/bulletin.html.
