Call for Application: Fellowship in the History of Migration [GHI Washington]

Deadline: December 1, 2016

The German Historical Institute, Washington, DC, is now accepting applications for a 6- to 12-month Fellowship in The History of Migration. Potential projects could focus on (but are not limited to) the following areas: the cultural capital of migrants and their communities, migration and knowledge transfer, and state responses to migration. It is essential that the proposed research projects make use of historical methods and engage with the relevant historiography. The fellowship term begins September 1, 2017.

The Fellow is expected to be in residence in Washington, DC, and participate in GHI activities and events. The Fellow will have the opportunity to make use of the resources in the Washington metropolitan area, including the Library of Congress and the National Archives, while pursuing his or her own research. Travel within the US to work in archives and libraries will also be possible. Candidates doing original research for a dissertation or a second book project will be given preference.

The fellowship is open to both doctoral and postdoctoral scholars. The monthly stipend is € 1,700 for doctoral students and € 3,000 for postdoctoral scholars from European institutions; students and scholars based at North American institutions will receive a stipend of $1,900 or $3,200 respectively. In addition, fellowship recipients based in Europe will receive reimbursement for their round-trip airfare to the U.S.

To apply please send a cover letter, a CV, a copy of your most recent diploma or transcripts, at least one letter of reference (sent separately), a research project proposal (5-pages or 2,000 words max), and a research schedule for the fellowship period, no later than December 1, 2016. Applicants may write in either English or German; we recommend that they use the language in which they are most proficient. Please also clearly state in the application why your project is a good fit for this specific fellowship.
