Fellowship in the History of Consumption

The German Historical Institute, Washington, DC, is now accepting applications for a six-month fellowship in the American or European History of Consumption, with the possibility of extending it to a total of ten months (depending on the availability of funding). 


Preference is given to applicants on the postdoctoral level. The monthly stipend is €3000 for EU citizens and $3200 for US citizens. The fellow is expected to be in residence at the GHI and participate in GHI activities and events, including planning a workshop on the history of consumption. The fellow will have the opportunity to make use of the resources in the Washington, DC area, including the Library of Congress and the National Archives, while pursuing his or her own research agenda.

To apply please send a cover letter, a CV, a 5-page research project proposal, a one-page proposal for a workshop, and two writing samples, such as an article or a book chapter. While applicants may write in either English or German, we recommend that they use the language in which they are most proficient. Submission of documents by email is strongly preferred.
