Residence Grant Application - Center for Urban History
We invite you to apply for the 2022-2023 Residence Grant at the Center for Urban History.
The residence grants are offered to researchers of various fields in the humanities from different countries. We especially encourage historians, culture studies scholars, and anthropologists. We welcome applications for research that offer broad interpretations of urban history as a discipline at the intersection of various approaches of humanities and social sciences. The chronological and geographical frames of the proposed research are limited to the 19th and 20th-century history of East and Central Europe. Preference will be given to topics related to the Center’s research focuses like urbanization in multi-ethnic cities, individual experience of city residents during 20th-century radical changes and wars, planned cities, urban heritage, commemorative practices and city space, infrastructure and cultural practices in the cities, digital and public history.
The program includes:
- one-month residence grants for young researchers, working on their PhD thesis or preparing them for publishing;
- two-week residence grants for advanced researchers;
- residencies on digital history up to one month:
