The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) is now accepting applications for the 2011 Fulbright German Studies Seminar. The topic is "Ethnic Diversity and National Identity" and the application deadline in October 15th, 2010.
The Fulbright German Studies Seminar offers U.S. scholars the opportunity to meet in Germany to discuss current issues relevant to both Germany and the international community. The seminar will explore what it means to be a member of a distinctive national group today (e.g. German, French, Dutch etc); how a national identity is defined, how it has evolved, whether there are geographic differences in this concept of "national identity" and - in the case of Germany -what impact reunification, i.e. the merging of two seemingly different national identities, has had on it. Do East and West Germans, for example, even share the same views of a German national identity today? Major parts of the program will take place in Berlin, but visits to other regions will also be included.
Applications are now being accepted. Those eligible to apply include scholars from U.S. universities, colleges, and community colleges who hold full-time teaching appointments and a Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree (e.g. a professional masterís degree in the field of the seminar topic). Applicants must be U.S. citizens. The seminar is to be held in English, and will take place June 15 - 25, 2011. More information about this award can be found online at www.cies.org/GSS/.
