in cooperation with the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University, is now offering German and North American scholars the opportunity to develop binational research tandems which link up two academics, one from Germany and one from North America, to work on projects which engage with global history or use trans-regional approaches and contain productive areas of overlap either in their topics or in their conceptional frameworks. The tandem program presents an excellent opportunity for scholars from Germany and North America to develop their expertise by collaborating closely, to work with additional resources and to make connections with others in their fields.
The program is designed for postdoctoral, mid-career, and established historians from Germany and North America. We welcome applications both from individuals who would like to find a partner for collaboration and the sharing of ideas from the other country/region and from previously formed binational partnerships. Preference will be given to candidates doing original research for a new book project.
The program should appeal not just intellectually but also materially. The advertisement continues:
