Call for Submissions

International Research Award in Global History 2018

Deadline 30 September 2017

 

The Universities of Munich, Basel and Sydney are proud to announce the Fourth International Research Award in Global History. The successful applicant will receive up to €10,000 towards the organization of an international symposium at the History Department of the University of Munich.

Over the last two decades global history has emerged as an important sub‐discipline in the broader field of historical research, encompassing a wide range of methodological and thematic approaches, including transnational, international and world history. The International Research Award in Global History and the award symposium have been initiated jointly by some of the leading researchers in the field, in order to support innovative young researchers. The award aims to give them the intellectual freedom and the financial means to bring together scholars from all over the world to engage with a topic of their own choice and design. Our aim is to make the scholarly work of the awardee visible in the scientific community and put them in closer contact with established colleagues in their field. Beyond supporting the research and academic networks of the prize‐winning scholar, the award symposium will contribute to the field’s ability to critically reflect and intellectually replenish itself. The award also aims to reach out to an academic public beyond the sub‐discipline of global history and provide a broader stage for the pioneering research currently undertaken in the field.

The purse of up to €10,000 attached to the award will be used to host an international symposium on a topic proposed by the successful applicant. In 2018, the symposium will take place at the University of Munich, Germany, in late September/early October. The awardee will be responsible for organizing the panels and inviting the speakers. Chairs and discussants will come from the initiating institutions at Basel, Munich and Sydney. Organizational support will be available.

The International Research Award in Global History is jointly advertised by the Department of History at the University of Munich (Roland Wenzlhuemer – currently Heidelberg, as from October 2017 at the University of Munich), the Institute for European Global Studies at the University of Basel (Madeleine Herren‐Oesch) and the Laureate Research Program in International History at the University of Sydney (Glenda Sluga).

Candidates need to be in the early stage of their research career in History (2‐7 years after their PhD). Applicants should submit a cover letter explaining their interest in the award (max. 2 pages), an academic CV and their proposal for the symposium (detailing the topic, a tentative list of participants and a preliminary budget, max. 5 pages). It is possible for two candidates to submit a joint proposal. We encourage scholars and scholarship from beyond the trans‐Atlantic triangle, and gender balance in conceptualising symposiums. Please submit your application electronically to susanne.hohler@zegk.uni‐heidelberg.de (as one PDF file) by 30 September 2017.

The award is funded jointly by the Department of History and the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" at Heidelberg University (Roland Wenzlhuemer), the Institute for European Global Studies at the University of Basel (Madeleine Herren-Oesch) and the Laureate Research Program in International History at the University of Sydney (Glenda Sluga).

Dr. Ogle teaches and writes about the history of modern Europe from an international and global perspective. In her first monograph, she explored the "The Global Transformation of Time, 1870 - 1950". In another book project, "Archipelago Capitalism: The Other International Political Economy, ca. 1870s-1980s," she analyses the formation of a distinctly non-territorial and non-national economic and legal order that was put in place in the postwar decades and that would come to form the basis for today's global economy as it emerged from the 1970s and 1980s.

Dr. Ogle will organize an international conference on the topic "Global Histories of Taxation since 1880". The event will take place on December 1-3, 2016, at the Institute for European Global Studies of the University of Basel.
