VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: KOINet - Workshop "Narrating the Past"

When? 24. - 25.06.2021

Where? Online

The workshop aims to look at historiography from a literary perspective and thus find new approaches to the texts. The exchange of methods beyond the boundaries of one's own subject should lead to discovering new approaches and improve interdisciplinary networking.

Especially in the premodern era, historiographical texts use literary techniques that have little in common with a modern, more objective approach and therefore do not receive sufficient attention. Approaches from literary studies can help to gain innovative access to the texts and generate new knowledge. Possible approaches, which often have an interdisciplinary background, include, but are not limited to:

  • narratology
  • ecocriticism
  • possible worlds theory
  • animal studies
  • spatial criticism, geocriticism
  • narrative psychology
  • theories on fictionality
  • stereotype research

To stimulate strong exchange and discourse, the workshop will proceed according to the following principle: Sessions consist of a 10-minute presentation on a paper that has been read beforehand by the participants and 30 minutes of moderated discussion.

If you would like to present your own research, please send us the presentation title with a short abstract (250 words) and additional discussion-relevant reading material of a maximum of 12 pages with suitable key questions for reading and a short CV. If you are accepted, we will ask you to submit a written paper of max. 1500 words by June 5, 2021. The papers form the foundation for a later publication on the KOINet website.

Contributions can be both German and English.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is May 7, 2021, for the paper and reading material June 5, 2021. Please send us your submissions in a PDF file via email (lilli.holzlhammer@lingfil.uu.se). Registration as a participant for the workshop is possible by email until June 15, 2021.

VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Fritz-Thyssen-Stiftung: Forschungsstipendien für Postdocs

Eligible are postdocs who have been awarded their doctoral / PhD degrees one to two years prior to their applications. They should be able to carry out their project within one to two years. The project needs to be linked to their own, independent research plan that is to be carried out while working at a university or non-profit research organisation.

An application can be filed in the following areas of support (for details, please visit the webpage of the Thyssen foundation):

- History, Language & Culture

- The interdisciplinary field “Image–Sound–Language”

- State, Economy and Society

Funding is basically reserved for projects that are related to the promotion areas of the Foundation and have a clear connection to the German research system. This connection can be established either at a personal level through German scientists working on the project, at an institutional level through non-German scientists being affiliated to German research institutes or through studies on topics related thematically to German research interests.

No stipends are awarded for doctoral dissertations or “Habilitationen” (post-doctoral research) or to complete such works to follow up support through other institutions. The foundation generally does not accept any applications for projects if applications are being filed with other institutions offering support at the same time. An application that is refused by another institution can be filed with the foundation along with a note explaining why it was refused.
