The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien and the Irmgard Coninx Foundation invite postdoctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences to apply for the Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies in the framework of its research programs:
  • Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices
  • Europe in the Middle East – The Middle East in Europe (EUME) and Prisma Ukraina – Research Network Eastern Europe
Processes of globalization and fragmentation, increased mobility of things, persons, and ideas as well as new forms of immobility and shrinking public spaces transform individual life worlds, politics and whole societies. Exchange and interaction, entanglement and networks characterize our world as much as their opposites. This requires closer collaboration between scholars from different regional backgrounds and a fundamental thematic and conceptual reconfiguration of the academic disciplines, which largely continue to analyze the world within the framework of nation-states or geographic/cultural areas.

Applicants should have obtained their doctorate within the last seven years. As a rule, the fellowships start on October 1, 2018 and end on July 31, 2019. Postdoctoral fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 2,500 EUR plus a supplement depending on their personal situation.

The next deadline for applications is March 1, 2018.
