News from Sep 15, 2022

Call for Applications!

News: The Doctoral Studies Program “History and Cultural Studies (HCS)” is offering up to 10 study places at the Freie Universität Berlin.

Application Closing Date: 15 November 2022

Start: 1. October 2023

The internationally oriented doctoral studies program History and Cultural Studies (HCS) invites applications for up to ten study places. The program is part of the Department of History and Cultural Studies and is a member of the Dahlem Research School.

Target group: The doctoral studies program (HCS) offers graduate students with an excellent academic record a structured, research-oriented program in cultural studies with disciplinary and interdisciplinary elements for doctoral studies in one of the research areas of the Department of History and Cultural Studies: History, Art History, Ancient Studies, East Asia and the Near East Studies, Jewish Studies and Scientific Study of Religion. The doctoral program is designed to last three years. Courses are taught in English and German.

Profile: HCS considers both the tradition of Kulturwissenschaften taught in Germany and the Anglo-American cultural studies approach to (socio-)political questions. The doctoral program brings these subjects together in the common interest of combining broad approaches of cultural studies with subject-specific knowledge and competence and forming a practice of interdisciplinary work.

The program gives doctoral students the opportunity to develop and regularly discuss their own research based on these discursive traditions. Participation in the HCS requires both well-founded subject knowledge and a profound interest in theoretical and methodological issues on an interdisciplinary level.

On October 11, 2022, 2–3 p.m., there will be a webinar for those interested to ask questions about our doctoral studies program and the application process! Link to WebEx-Raum  (PW: graduate)

Application: The application can be submitted in German or English exclusively via the online portal of the Dahlem Research School. The online portal will be accessible from 15 September to 15 November 2022. Further information can also be found on our website.
