Call for Applications

About the Fellowships

Visiting Fellowships 2023

Application deadline: September 30, 2022Against a backdrop of global political power shifts and faced with the environmental crisis and social injustice, the Joint Center for Advanced Studies “Worldmaking from a Global Perspective: A Dialogue with China” explores existing notions of “world” and approaches to worldmaking from transnational and transcultural perspectives. The Center is jointly organized by researchers at universities in Berlin, Göttingen, Heidelberg, Munich, and Würzburg. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

In order to promote knowledge exchange, dialogue, and cooperation between Chinese and German scholars, the Center has established a visiting fellowship program. During the fellowship period from April to August, the program provides several short-term fellowships at one of the Center’s partner institutions.

Within the framework of the Center, the project “A Translingual Conceptual History of Chinese Worlds, located at Freie Universität Berlin (Prof. Dr. Sebastian Conrad), scrutinizes the history and global entanglements of Chinese terms and concepts related to “world”. It analyses which concepts of world particular terms convey, how terms and concepts have moved across linguistic borders, and how the use of terms and their inclusion into new narratives create worlds of their own. The Freie Universität Berlin is looking for applications for fellowships with research topics that contribute to this broader endeavor, addressing a relevant theme or sub-topic within this framework.

About the Visiting Fellowships:

This call invites applications for visiting fellowships in 2023. The Center will be able to grant fellowships for one to three months for internationally renowned scholars with a Chinese (or Hong Kong/Macau/Taiwanese) university background. The exact beginning and end of the fellows’ stays are flexible and can be negotiated with the universities. Ideally, visiting fellows would team up with colleagues at Freie Universität Berlin.

The visiting fellowship comprises a monthly stipend of € 3.170 during the stay at the Freie Universität Berlin (plus family supplements, depending on personal circumstances). Additionally, international travel costs of max. € 1.300 and national travel costs for travels to other locations of the Center during the stay in Germany will be funded.

About the application:

Visiting fellowship applications are open to all senior scholars with Chinese (or Hong Kong/Macau/Taiwanese) university background (professors and postdocs). The project A Translingual Conceptual History of Chinese Worlds is open to all fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences but particularly encourages applications from the following fields: conceptual history (gainian shi), global history, translation and transculturality.

All applications should be submitted electronically in one PDF-file to our coordination office: office[at]worldmaking-china.org

Application materials include:

  • Letter of motivation
  • Curriculum vitae including a list of publications
  • Project outline (1 page)
  • Preferred time and duration of your stay at Freie Universität Berlin

The diversity of our project should also be reflected in the fellowships. We therefore welcome applicants irrespective of their cultural and social background, age, religion, world view, disabilities or sexual identity.

Applications will be evaluated by the selection committee by November. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of the selection process in November 2022.

While we are still closely monitoring the ongoing implications of the coronavirus pandemic on the safety and mobility of people, we would like to pursue the fellowships as announced in this call.

In case of any questions, please contact our coordination office (office[at]worldmaking-china.org).
