Organized by Anna von der Goltz (Georgetown University) and Richard F. Wetzell (GHI Washington) in cooperation with Miriam Rürup (Institut für die Geschichte der deutschen Juden), the 2017 seminar will be devoted to the 19th and 20th centuries and take place at the Institut für die Geschichte der deutschen Juden in Hamburg on June 7-10, 2017.
We are now accepting applications from doctoral students whose dissertations are at an advanced stage (that is, in the write-up rather than research stage) but who will be granted their degrees after June 2017. Applications should include: (1) dissertation project description (max. 2 pages), (2) provisional table of contents, indicating which chapters have been completed (max. 2 pages), (3) curriculum vitae (max. 2 pages), (4) letter of reference from the major dissertation advisor (commenting on progress toward completion and foreign language skills). German-speaking applicants should submit their materials in German; English-speaking applicants in English. The first three documents should be combined in a single PDF file and emailed to Ms. Susanne Fabricius at email@example.com by January 15, 2017. Letters of reference should be emailed (preferably in PDF format) directly by the advisor by the same date. Questions may be directed to Richard Wetzell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
