IWM Fellowship Opportunities in Vienna

The Institute for Human Sciences (Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, IWM), an intellectually and politically independent institute for advanced study in the humanities and social sciences in Vienna, has recently published four new calls for application. Deadline: January 31, 2021

The majority of IWM fellowships are awarded in open competition, involving calls for application and evaluation by expert juries. Research proposals are currently invited for the following programs:


5 Positions at the Research Center for the History of Transformations (RECET), University of Vienna

In spring 2020, the University of Vienna will establish the Research Center for the History of Transformations (RECET), funded by the Wittgenstein award 2019 for Philipp Ther (granted by the FWF). The center takes the 1989 upheaval in Central and Eastern Europe as a starting point for European and global comparisons of labor relations, the history of enterprises, social movements and volunteerism as well as economic thinking and reform policies.

Re: Research Query: Jonas Kreppel

This is a bio-bibliographical response: Zalmen Reyzen, in vol. 3 of his Leksikon fun der yidisher literatur (1927; cols. 790-796; in Yiddish), has an extensive entry on Kreppel. A follow-up entry on Kreppel is included in the successor to Reyzen’s Leksikon, vol. 8 of the Leksikon fun der nayer yidisher literatur (1981; cols. 275-276). Both of these sources focus on Kreppel’s Yiddish works (the vast majority of Kreppel’s publications listed in WorldCat are in Yiddish).

Re: Research Query: Jonas Kreppel

I'm not researching Kreppel (just some of his contemporaries), but -- in case you're not aware of it -- there are a number of items by or about him in the Historical Jewish Press website, jpress.org.il . Search it under his Hebrew name, יונה קרפל

I hope that's helpful -- best of success,

Research Query: Jonas Kreppel

I'd like to connect with people working on or studying the writings of Jonas Kreppel (1874-1940). I recently came upon his writings in the archives of the Arnold Schoenberg Center (Vienna). Schoenberg had a copy of Juden und Judentum von Heute (1925). I've come across other writings subsequently, and am keen to assess where this material fits in with the scholarship of Viennese-Jewry.
