Call for Applications - Vienna-Jerusalem Graduate School 2017: Memory and the City

September 10-15, 2017 - Vienna, Austria

The Austrian Academy of Science and the Center for Austrian Studies at the European Forum at the Hebrew University invite early Post-Docs, PhD and advanced Master Students from the European Forum’s teaching programs to apply for the first Vienna-Jerusalem Graduate School. The joint project of both institutions offers the opportunity to present and discuss current research projects in the fields of Memory Studies, History, German and Austrian Studies, Media Studies and Urban Studies with fellow young researchers and international experts.
The first Vienna-Jerusalem Graduate School combines two significant frames in order to understand geographical, spatial and material dimensions of memory: the focus on memory culture and the framework of urban studies. The objective of the graduate school is to analyze and discuss the interaction between these two frames in a general sense (entangled memories, sites of memory, material memory culture) as well as in regard to specific case studies that include museums, memorials, street names, or memory tours. Beyond this focus on ‘classical’ memory sites we also intend to discuss the relation between memory and the city in a more abstract (graphic) or virtual sense, which will include the research of visual sources (photographs, maps) as well as imaginary landscapes (film) or virtual places (animated environments, virtual places of memory, audio tours).

Deadline for applications: April 25, 2017
