Fellowships 2012/13 “Work and Life Course in Global History” (HU Berlin)
The International Research Center “Work and Human Lifecycle in Global
History” at Humboldt University in Berlin, funded by the Federal
Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) invites scholars to apply
for 10 international research fellowships (senior scholars and
postdoctoral candidates) for the 2012-2013 academic year. Applications
are due in Berlin on 15 August 2011.
Candidates: We welcome candidates especially from the disciplines of
history, anthropology, law, sociology, political science, and area
studies. Applicants should be at the postdoctoral level or senior
scholars. We would like the proposed projects to employ a historical
and transregional perspective. Also, please do not only focus on work/
labour, but also on life course. Possible topic areas are, among
others, the household, loss of work, the relationship between work and
non-work, as well as free and unfree labour. We welcome proposals
about all regions of the world and especially those that look at
comparisons, conflicts, relations between different regions. In any
case, a global history perspective has to be taken into consideration.
The fellowships will begin on 1 October 2012 and end on 31 July 2013.
Shorter fellowship terms will be possible. Fellows will receive a
monthly stipend, which can be individually negotiated, and are obliged
to work at the research center in Berlin. A fully equipped office will
be provided as well as organizational help for visa, housing, etc.
During the fellowship, we also encourage fellows to introduce their
work to wider audiences in the scientific community in Berlin.
