The Germany Residency Program

DEADLINE: APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY OCTOBER 2, 2017.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the OAH International Committee is pleased to announce the continuation of the Residency Program in American History—Germany (Germany Residency Program) at the University of Tübingen.

The committee seeks applications from OAH members who are established scholars affiliated with an American or Canadian University interested in leading an advanced undergraduate/graduate student seminar focusing on one aspect of U.S. History. The seminar will be based on a topic in U.S. History of an applicant’s design, and all fields and methodologies are welcome. The language of instruction for the seminar is English. The Residency Program will provide round-trip airfare, housing for thirty days, a modest honorarium ($1,200), a graduate assistant, and office space. Tübingen is located in southwestern Germany, 25 miles south of Stuttgart. It is one of Germany’s oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education and has a vibrant community engaged in the study of the United States.

The application process requires a short CV, the name and contact information of one reference who can speak to an applicant’s teaching and scholarship, and an outline of the planned seminar at the University of Tübingen. The deadline for application is midnight (PST) on October 2, 2017, and the application materials must be sent electronically (PDF) to germanyresidency@oah.org. Please indicate “2018 Germany Residency Program” in the subject line.
