Call for Applications: GEOP Interdisciplinary Research Workshops 2020
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews—through the Global Education Outreach Program—invites scholars and academic institutions to propose three-day research workshops to be held at POLIN Museum.
GEOP Interdisciplinary Research Workshops may be devoted to any topic of relevance in Polish-Jewish Studies such as history, cultural studies, art history, public history, museology, memory studies or related subjects. We invite applications which approach the field from new and innovative perspectives and especially encourage interdisciplinary and comparative research.
The event’s framework should be that of a research workshop, allowing ample time for discussion and a dynamic exchange of ideas between participants.
Workshops should also include a public event addressed to the general public. This could be a lecture or a panel debate but also another form of contribution to the Museum’s activity.
We are particularly interested in projects based on international cooperation. The GEOP aims to bring together scholars from Poland and from abroad to ensure the development of a new generation in the field of Polish-Jewish studies. Therefore, one Polish partner in addition to POLIN Museum is a must.
POLIN Museum provides venues and organizational support before and during the event. Additionally, we offer to cover the costs of accommodation and meals during the workshop. Our contribution is, however, limited to a maximum of fifty percent of the total cost of the workshop, not exceeding $ 7,000.
Application process and deadline:
To be considered for funding in 2020, please submit the completed application form with letters of intent from all institutional partners outlining the extent of cooperation to: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 31 July 2019.
Decisions will be announced by 30 September 2019.
Global Education Outreach Program was made possible thanks to the Taube Philanthropies, the William K. Bowes, Jr. Foundation, and the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland.
