The Summer Academy is a collaboration of the Bavarian American Academy and the University of Kentucky to explore a theme in American Studies through a combination of keynote lectures, group work-in-progress sessions, and cultural activities, over an eight-day period, with a nominal tuition (which includes housing and cultural events) of $550. Its limited enrollment is open by competitive application. This year’s theme is “Cultural Narratives of the State in a Comparative Perspective.”
The program of the academy entails keynote lectures by US and European speakers and work-in-progress presentations by doctoral students and junior faculty. All presentations are delivered in plenary sessions, with ample time for questions and discussion. The eight-day program will also include several cultural events related to the region.
Applications are open for doctoral students and junior faculty. Applications should contain:
- a 1-page letter of application
- a 2-page project description
- one letter of recommendation
The application should be submitted electronically by March 17, 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please direct any questions to Emily Naser-Hall, Program Coordinator, at email@example.com.
