Medieval German History Seminar
- Please note this is an academic forum, not an SCA event. I thought that
among this group there might be interest.

MEDIEVAL HISTORY SEMINAR
October 24-26, 2003
The German Historical Institute is pleased to announce the third Medieval
History Seminar, to be held in Washington, D.C., from October 24 to 26,
2003. The seminar is designed to bring together American and German Ph.D.
candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2001-2002) in medieval history for
a weekend of scholarly discussion and collaboration. They will have the
opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as to
distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.
Conveners for the 2003 seminar will be Professors Michael Borgolte
(Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Caroline W. Bynum (Institute for Advanced
Study, Princeton, N.J.), Johannes Fried (Universität Frankfurt), and
Patrick J. Geary (University of California, Los Angeles).
The Medieval History Seminar welcomes proposals from all areas of medieval
history. Participation is not limited to historians working on German
history or German-speaking regions of Europe. Nor is a particular epoch or
methodological approach preferred. Applications from neighboring
disciplines are welcome if the projects have a distinct historical focus.
Papers and discussions will be conducted both in German and English.
Successful applicants must be prepared to submit a paper of approximately
twenty typewritten pages by September 12, 2003. They also are expected to
serve as commentator for one other paper presented in the seminar.
The GHI will cover the travel and lodging expenses of the participants.
Applications are accepted in German or English and should include:
- a curriculum vitae (including address and e-mail),
- a description of the proposed paper (4-5 pages, double-spaced),
- and one letter of recommendation.
The deadline for submission is May 1, 2003.
