Scholars in Residence

 

Workspace

Zur Intensivierung der internationalen Kontakte hat das FIIT in seinem Gebäude im Zentrum der Heidelberger Altstadt sieben gut ausgerüstete Arbeitsplätze eingerichtet, die für das Scholars in Residence-Programm bestimmt sind. Für 3-12 Monate steht den Gastwissenschaftlern die akademische Infrastruktur in Heidelberg zur Verfügung, u.a. die neu renovierte Bibliothek des Wissenschaftlich-Theologischen Seminars.

Seit 2006 haben bereits Forscherinnen und Forscher aus Brasilien, China, Dänemark, Finnland, Großbritannien, Hongkong, Indien, Israel, Korea, Neuseeland, den Niederlanden, Norwegen, der Schweiz, Spanien, Südafrika, Taiwan, Tansania, Tschechien, Ungarn und den USA die Möglichkeiten des FIIT genutzt (siehe das Verzeichnis der bisherigen Scholars in Residence).

"It is difficult to imagine a more ideal setting to spend research time than the FIIT. On the one hand, one thinks of the beautiful building with its wonderful setting, garden and views, the efficient infrastructure and helpful assistants, the quiet, peaceful offices. During my (alway too short) visits it was a joy to walk down the cold and (still) quiet street – and make myself at home before the computer, looking out of the window in the direction of the Neckar. On the other hand, one thinks of the vibrant academic atmosphere in Heidelberg, the colleagues from the different seminars and disciplines, the interesting post­graduate students, the wonderful library collections, informal discussions and the regular opportunities to meet other scholars passing through as well, from many places, disciplines and backgrounds. As a stimulating intellectual and enjoyable cultural experience, the FIIT in Heidelberg is strongly recommended – as a place to read, think, imagine, write, but also to network, meet, converse, and celebrate friendship."

 

Dr. Dr. h.c. William Schweiker (Professor of Theological Ethics, Director of The Institute for the Advanced Study of Religion, The University of Chicago):

"It is a great honor and intellectually invigorating to participate in the work of the FIIT. Located in the midst of one of the world’s greatest Universities near the Theology faculty and also the heart of the beautiful old city in Heidelberg, the FIIT is an ideal place for scholarly work. The range of programs as well as state-of-the-art facilities enables cutting edge interdisciplinary religious and theological scholarship among scholars from around the world. For me, the FIIT is the model for the direction that scholarship must take in our global age."
