12 Doctoral Fellowships and 1 Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Graduate School Global Intellectual History

Deadline September 15, 2016.

News from Aug 08, 2016

The graduate school Global Intellectual History aims to explore intellectual reactions to processes of entanglement from the 18th to 20th century in their social, cultural and political contexts: the trans-border spread of ideas, claims to universal validity, as well as counter-movements and resistance to such claims. A particular, but not exclusive focus is on the role of non-Western actors and ideas.

The graduate school is funded by the German Research Council (DFG) and jointly run by Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität Berlin. It builds on a strong research tradition in area studies and global history at both universities, including the jointly-run MA program in Global History. It offers a stimulating research environment, substantial financial support for archival stays and a strong network of international partners in the form of the Global History Collaborative.
