This project is funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's TransCoop program (€ 40.000). The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation supports transatlantic research cooperation among German, American and/or Canadian scholars (Ph.D. required) in the humanities, social sciences, economics, and law.
The JFKI engages in a joint research initiative with American partners in the area of "Transnational Studies". This cooperation will include research trips to the United States as well as joint conferences.
On the German side other partner institutions include the University of Potsdam and the Humboldt University on Berlin. The American partners are Prof. Donald Pease (Dartmouth College) and Professor John Carlos Rowe (UCLA).
