Medieval History Seminar

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. 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.

The most recent MHS will took place in 2015 (a call for papers will be posted here).
