About the Doctoral Seminar
The German Historical Institute Washington and the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University are pleased to announce the 22nd Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar in German History. Organized by Anna von der Goltz (Georgetown University) and Richard F. Wetzell (GHI Washington), the 2016 seminar will be devoted to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and take place at the GHI Washington on May 25-28, 2016.
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 2016. Applications should include: (1) brief cover letter, (2) dissertation project description (including title, structure, and current stage of completion; max. 1000 words), (3) one-page outline of chapters (provisional table of contents), (4) curriculum vitae, (5) 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 four documents should be combined in a single PDF file and emailed to Ms. Susanne Fabricius by January 15, 2016. 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.
