Fellowships at the Käte Hamburger Research Centre

The Käte Hamburger Research Centre “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalisation” (global dis:connect) at LMU Munich invites applications for fellows for 2024/25. Topic: Detours

The centre explores from international and transdisciplinary perspectives the interdependent, complex relationship between global interconnectedness, lack of interconnectedness and disentanglement in historical and contemporary globalisation processes. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences, especially from the fields of history, theatre studies and art history, are invited to apply. The work of the fellows should have a clear connection to the general goals of the Käte Hamburger Research Centre and deal with at least one of the annually changing focal topics. These are for 2024/25: Detours. To find out more about the aims of the centre and the content of the foci, please visit the website at www.globaldisconnect.org.


Applications are open to post-doctoral researchers who have already distinguished themselves
with outstanding work on the thematic focus of the centre.
In addition to the usual application documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications),
we ask you to enclose an exposé (approx. 5 pages) with your application, in which you
present your research project in a clear and focused manner and elaborate on its relation to
the Käte Hamburger Research Centre “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalization”. Interdisciplinary
connectivity and a link to current (also socio-political) debates are advantageous.
The exposé should also include a short work plan for the time of your stay. Please send your
complete application documents digitally in one single PDF file to applications.gdc@lmu.de
by 15 April 2023.
For further information on the centre please consult our website at
www.globaldisconnect.org or contact the directors Christopher Balme (Theatre Studies, balme@
