Research Group »Displaced Heritage: German-Jewish Migration and Cultural Transfer in the 20th Century«
DEADLINE EXTENDED: 14 February 2024
We invite applications from scholars to join an international research group. German-Jewish history, before and after the Second World War, was marked by an intense mobility. This includes Jewish immigration to Weimar Germany following WWI, large-scale flight from the Reich during the 1930s and the post-war emigration of Holocaust survivors. These movements of people had a huge impact on the life of German Jews and have attracted increased scholarly attention within the last decades. Today, a well-developed body of research discusses political, social, cultural, religious, and economic aspects of German-Jewish migration.
Scholarships for untenured participants will be considered. All participants will be expected to participate in the monthly meetings and present their research. Everyone will be encouraged to contribute a paper to be published at one of the institute’s publication platforms.
Applicants are requested to submit:
1. Curriculum Vitae
2. Research proposal 1-2 pages
All applications shall be written in English and submitted until 14 February 2024 (DEADLINE EXTENDED) at: leobaeck(at)leobaeck.org
Decisions will be made until the end of February 2024 and applicants will be informed accordingly.
