Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities: Dis:connectivtiy in processes of globalisation at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität

 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 inter-dependent, complex relationship between global interconnectedness, lack of inter-connectedness 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 

Applications are open to post-doctoral researchers who have already distinguished themselves with outstanding work on the thematic focus of the Center. Please send your complete application documents digitally in a PDF file to Ms. Raphaela Loosen (raphaela.loosen@lmu.de) by 19 September 2021. Find more information about the fellowship and application process here.
