The German Federal Ministry of Education & Research Germany Fellowship Program 2015-16
2015-16 Germany Fellowship Program at the German Federal Ministry of Education & Research
The “Internationales Kolleg Morphomata: Genesis, Dynamics and Mediality of Cultural Figurations” at the University of Cologne is welcoming applications to fill ten slots for 3 to 6 month fellowships (irrespective of discipline) in biography/life writing and portraiture for 2015. All fellowships are pending grant approval by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Morphomata is part of the “Käte Hamburger Kollegs”, a series of Centers for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, founded by the BMBF in 2009. The institute investigates manifestations of cultural knowledge in textual and material artifacts. The Center’s fellows form the core of a learning community that attempts to transcend national borders, disciplines and theoretical frameworks by working on case studies exemplifying themes central to all cultures. As of 2015 Morphomata will focus on biographies and portraiture as figurations of individual lives and figurations of the particular.
Study Subject(s): As of 2015 Morphomata will focus on biographies and portraiture as figurations of individual lives and figurations of the particular.
Course Level: Fellowships are available to carry out research at the University of Cologne.
Scholarship Provider: The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Scholarship can be taken at: Germany
As a prerequisite for a Morphomata Fellowship, the fellow must have the status of at least an assistant professor (or equivalent) and should have a strong research focus on studies in biography/life writing and/or portraiture. An alternative research focus could be in theoretical aspects of the formation, dynamics and mediality of cultural figurations. Experience and interest in “figurations of the singular and the exemplary” is an asset. Morphomata fellows are expected to be in residence at the University of Cologne and to participate in the academic life of the Center for the tenure of their fellowship.
Scholarship Open for International Students: German citizens can apply for this fellowship program.
