I am looking for a fellow PhD candidate in history who is interested in attending an archival research seminar in September 2012. The seminar will consist of general archival training as well as visits to several major archives in the U.S. The organizing committee strongly encourages applications of transatlantic partners, meaning here that a PhD student from the U.S. and a PhD student from Germany apply together. I am a PhD candidate at the Graduate School of North American Studies at Free University Berlin, Germany. My dissertation is a comparative history of social movements in New York City and Berlin during different periods of crisis in the 19th and 20th century. If you are interested and if you are working on issues such as social movements, labor organizations, or similar topics, please contact me at Reick@gsnas.fu-berlin.de asap. (I am especially interested in comparative or transnational/transatlantic approaches, but I would of course also consider single case studies.)
The archival seminar is explicitly designed to meet the needs of PhD students who have already chosen a specific topic but have not yet started the actual archival work necessary for their approach. The deadline for submission is March 1, 2012.
For more information on the seminar and application procedure, please refer to http://www.ghi-dc.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1258&Itemid=1084.
