Apply for the 2012 Fulbright German Studies Seminar

Application Deadline: October 14, 2011

IIE’s Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) is now accepting applications for the 2012 Fulbright German Studies Seminar. The topic is "Nation-State and European Identity" and the application deadline is October 14, 2011.

The Fulbright German Studies Seminar offers U.S. scholars the opportunity to meet in Germany to discuss current issues facing Germans, Europeans, and the broader international community. The 2012 seminar on "Nation-State and European Identity" will explore questions related to the evolving definition of identity within Germany and Europe. Throughout the seminar, scholars will examine the influence of the European Union on German identity, hear from experts about how concepts of national and regional identity are being challenged, and whether competing identities can be reconciled. The majority of the program will take place in Berlin, but visits to other regions will also be included.

Eligible candidates include scholars from U.S. universities, colleges, and community colleges who hold full-time teaching appointments and a Ph.D., or equivalent professional/terminal degree, in a field related to the seminar topic. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. The seminar will be held in English and will take place on June 12–23, 2012.
