“Dis:connectivtiy in processes of globalisation“
The Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalisation” (global dis:connect) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich invites applications for fellowships of up to 12 months for the academic year 2022/23.
The Center explores from international and transdisciplinary perspectives the interdependent, complex relationship between global interconnectedness, lack of interconnectedness and disentanglement in historical and contemporary globalisation processes. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences, especially from the fields of history, theatre studies and art history, are invited to apply. The work of the fellows should have a clear connection to the general goals of the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities and deal with at least one of the annually changing focal topics. These are:
• academic year 2022/23: interruptions
• academic year 2023/24: absences
• academic year 2024/25: detours
To find out more about the aims of the Center and the content of the foci, please visit the website at www.globaldisconnect.org.
Applications are open to post-doctoral researchers who have already distinguished themselves with outstanding work on the thematic focus of the Center.
In addition to the usual application documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications), we ask you to enclose an exposé (approx. 5 pages) with your application, in which you present your research project in a clear and focused manner and elaborate on its relation to the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalisation” (global dis:connect). Interdisciplinary connectivity and a link to current (also socio-political) debates are advantageous. The exposé should also include a short work plan for the time of your stay.
Please send your complete application documents digitally in a PDF file to Ms Raphaela Loosen (email@example.com) by 19 September 2021.
