Call for Applications: GEOP Interdisciplinary Research Workshops

POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews invites individuals and institutions to propose three-day research workshops to be held at POLIN Museum on topics related to the history and culture of Polish Jews, including new perspectives on public history, museums, and cultural memory. We especially encourage interdisciplinary and comparative approaches.

The framework of the event should be that of a research workshop, allowing ample time for discussion and dynamic exchange of ideas between participants. We are particularly interested in research subjects pertaining to Warsaw museums and archive collections (especially that of POLIN Museum and the Jewish Historical Institute).

The workshop should also include one event open to the general public and / or other form of contribution to the Museum’s activity.

GEOP provides funding to cover half of the costs of workshop organization, including accommodation and catering. We also offer venues and organizational support before and during the event.

In order to be considered for funding in 2018, please complete and submit the application form (available here) to no later than 30 September 2017.

Decisions will be announced by 30 November 2017.
