Rachel Carson – Simone Veil Fellowship, Call for Applications Summer Term 2023
The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society and Project House Europe, both located at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, invite applications for their joint fellowship.
The Rachel Carson Center (RCC) fosters innovative research and education in the environmental humanities and social sciences. Project House Europe (PHE) promotes cutting-edge research from around the world on the history of Europe during the 20th and 21st centuries.
As international and interdisciplinary research centers, they award one joint fellowship to a postdoctoral or senior scholar working across disciplines and striving to contribute to the public dialogue on contemporary European environmental history.
Applicants’ research and writing should encompass the central themes of both the RCC and the PHE: Research at the RCC is concerned with questions of the interrelationship between environment and society, and the social, political, cultural, and environmental factors shaping this interrelationship. PHE focuses on the history of Europe’s inner (dis )entanglements and its place in the world since 1918, in particular forms of trans- and international cooperation and their crises.
