The German History Society offers an annual prize of £300 for the best undergraduate dissertation written by a student of History (single or joint honours) at a UK or Irish university. Dissertations should be between 10,000 and 15,000 words in length and should address a theme in German history, broadly defined, from any period between the Middle Ages and the present day.
The confessional divide between Protestantism and Catholicism was an important factor in the emergence of (language-based) national identities and the European nation-state. These nation-states had to be reconstituted after the Napoleonic wars: New state structures, among them also bi-confessional ones, emerged. The Nation as the ideal foundation of political constitution had to be defined also in relation to religious classifications. Religious legitimation of statehood was confirmed anew in 1815, but was also challenged by modern forms of justification of rule.

The German Literature Archive Marbach, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, and the Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel collect, preserve, and provide access to more than 500 years of German and European cultural history. With the aim of intensifying their partnership, these three institutions have joined together to form a research association, supported by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research. This cooperation provides the framework for research work on three projects entitled Writers’ Libraries, Authors’ Portraits and Text and Frame.

The GHI Internship Program gives German and American students of history, political science, and library studies an opportunity to gain experience at a scholarly research institute. Interns assist individual research projects, work for the library, take part in the preparation and hosting of conferences, and help with our publications. The program is very flexible: the GHI tries to accommodate the interns' interests, abilities, and goals. A two-month minimum stay is required; a three months stay is preferred.
