Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies - International Summer Research Workshops for Scholars
- Fully Funded
- NaN undefined NaN
The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies solicits proposals from scholars to coordinate two-week research workshops at the Museum during the months of June, July, and August.
Established in 1999, the Summer Research Workshop program provides an environment in which groups of scholars working in closely related areas of study—but with limited previous face-to-face interaction—can gather to discuss a central research question or issue; their research methodologies and findings; the major challenges facing their work; and potential future collaborative scholarly ventures.
Workshops consist of two weeks of intensive discussion, culminating in a public presentation of the group’s results. Morning sessions typically consist of presentations by participants on their particular research projects. Afternoon sessions are predominantly dedicated to in-depth discussions of the overarching research issues, priorities, findings, and conclusions, as well as some workshop-based research using the Museum’s collections.
The final public panel features presentations on:
(1) the importance of the work and the scholarly rationale for convening the workshop;
(2) the issues discussed, approaches taken, and resources used by the group during the two weeks;
(3) the issues and source materials identified by the group as the most significant for future work; and
(4) the group’s collective results, findings, and conclusions.
For nonlocal participants, awards include (1) a stipend to offset the cost of direct travel to and from each participant’s home institution and Washington, DC; (2) lodging for the duration of the workshop; and (3) $500 toward the cost of incidental expenses, which will be distributed within two to four weeks of the workshop’s conclusion. Local participants receive a stipend of $200 for the two weeks.
