Bucerius Young Scholars Forum at GHI West (Berkeley) “Histories of Migration: Transatlantic and Global Perspectives

GHI West, the Pacific Regional Office of the German Historical Institute, Washington DC, invites proposals for papers to be presented at the 2nd Bucerius Young Scholars Forum at UC Berkeley, October 17-20, 2018. We seek proposals from post-doctoral scholars, recent PhDs, as well as those in the final stages of their dissertations with a background in history and/or related fields.

The Bucerius Young Scholars Forum, funded by the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius, is an annual program designed to bring together a transatlantic group of ten junior scholars from Germany, Europe and North America to explore new research and questions in the history of migration with a particular focus on questions arising from interlacing the perspectives of migration and knowledge. 

While the focus of the forum will be on historic discourses, we encourage applications from emerging scholars working in the social sciences, political sciences, or the fields of anthropology, migration, and area studies. The workshop language will be English. The organizers will cover basic expenses for travel and accommodation. Please send short proposals (750 words max.) and a one-page CV to Heike Friedman (friedman@ghi-dc.org) by March 15, 2018. Successful applicants will be notified by late April 2018.
