Binational Research Tandem Program in the History of Knowledge and Knowledge Cultures

Georgetown University

Job Type: Fellowship

Application Deadline: August 1, 2017

The GHI in cooperation with the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University is now offering German and North American scholars the opportunity to develop binational research tandems which link up two academics, one from Germany and one from North America, to work on projects on the history of knowledge, ideally ones which focus on the development of transatlantic perspectives on the issues they examine, and contain productive areas of overlap either in their topics or in their conceptual frameworks.. The program is designed for postdoctoral, mid-career, and established historians from Germany and North America with stipends ranging from €3,400 – €4,500/month depending on seniority. Funding will be provided for a 12-month stay at the German Historical Institute Washington, DC. Starting in September 2018, the successful applicants will be in residence at the GHI and invited to participate in GHI activities and events. They will be expected to plan and convene a joint conference or workshop, which will be funded by the GHI, as well as to give a public lecture at Georgetown University. The next deadline for applications is August 1, 2017. For more information about applying and other GHI fellowships, please visit
