Call for Papers : Block Seminar in Haïfa, Israel

The Haifa Center for German and European Studies (HCGES) invites applications from Master students and PhD candidates to participate in a two-week academic seminar on the topic of “Religion and Politics - Conflicts, Contestations, Concepts”. We especially encourage applications by students from religious studies, anthropology, International Relations and Law, as well as German and European studies.

The above-mentioned themes will be covered in a block seminar of six meetings of four academic hours each (45 min x 6 = 3 hours) over a period of two weeks (3 credits / 5 ECTS course). The results will be presented on an international conference on October 17 and 18 in Haifa. Participants will be requested to carefully prepare the readings and requirements for each session. Successful applicants will receive a travel grant and accommodation during the conference.

Applications should include a short motivation letter, a short CV, a project title and a short abstract (that makes clear how your paper and research relates to the overall theme).

The application deadline is 25 July 2018. Applications should be send to the HCGES : Successful applicants will receive detailed information on travel and logistics as well as a detailed course syllabus.
