    Conference at the GHI: October 11 - 14, 2007

    The German Historical Institutes in London and Washington are pleased to announce the fifth Medieval History Seminar, to be held in Washington, D.C., from October 11 to 14, 2007. The seminar is designed to bring together American, British and German Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2005-2006) 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 2007 seminar will be professors Michael Borgolte (Humboldt-Uni­ver­sität zu Berlin), Johannes Fried (Universität Frankfurt), Patrick J. Geary (University of California, Los Angeles), Barbara H. Rosenwein (Loyola University Chicago), and Miri Rubin (Queen Mary, University of London). 

    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 1, 2007. They also are expected to act as commentator for one other paper presented in the seminar. 

    The GHI will cover the travel and lodging expenses of the participants. 

    Applications should include:

    • a curriculum vitae (including address and e-mail);
    • a description of the proposed paper (4-5 pages, double-spaced);
    • one letter of recommendation.
    • Send applications via e-mail to Bärbel Thomas

    The deadline for submission is April 1, 2007
