Henriette Herz Scouting Program

We would like to draw your attention to the Henriette Herz Scouting Program.

The program is generally geared towards supporting promising young female researchers and scholars from regions which are usually not so well represented in the Western academic mainstream.

This opportunity is specifically for young female researchers in the discipline of art history from Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics or Caucasus, Central Asia or Siberia, etc. who work on modernism, abstraction, artists’ networks, and related topics.

 

Criteria for the program:

  • doctorate completed within the last 4 years (postdocs) or 12 years (researchers)
  • above-average publication record commensurate with career level
  • no post-doctoral research stays after completing doctorate, nor degrees/doctorates
    completed in Germany [conference participation is OK]
  • no German citizenship
  • good knowledge of German or English, depending on research proposal
  • the research fellowship should commence within 12 months of being granted
  • no previous applications nor previous sponsorship in any of the Foundation’s fellowship
    programs

 

If you are interested in the program, fulfill the criteria listed above, and want to be considered, please send your CV (no more than 2 pages), names/contacts of two references, list of publications along with your research proposal (2-3 pages) until August 15, 2021, to Prof. Dr. Isabel Wünsche i.wunsche@jacobs-university.de Potential candidates will be invited to present their research projects at a workshop in the fall.

Thank You for a Wonderful Workshop!

Our eighth graduate workshop on The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia and first online event was a great success!

We heard of intriguing research and engaged in vivid discussions thanks to our wonderful speakers, our participants, and our great colleagues at the “Eurasia in Global Dialogue” Program at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM).

Since we were not able to personally meet in Vienna, please enjoy some impressions of the city in our gallery.

The presentations will soon be available on YouTube. Furthermore, following tradition and for promoting reasons, there will be a booklet.

We will keep you updated!
