The DFG-funded project 'Religion and Urbanity. Reciprocal transformations' investigates the co-constitution and co-evolution of religion and the urban. This comprises the reciprocal processes deriving from, but also impacting on objects, architecture, and texts, but also on narratives, imaginaries and aspirative imaginations.
What is funded
The fellowships are awarded to scholars working in the Humanities, especially in the fields of History or of History of Religion (or in the fields of Sociology and Urban Studies with a focus on historical and religious developments). The KFG is financed by the German Research Foundation (FOR 2779) and directed by Prof. Dr. Susanne Rau and Prof. Dr. Jörg Rüpke.
The project invites applications for fellowships for a time period between winter and summer term 2021/22. Fellowships are granted for a period of 3 to 6 months. Fellows must reside in Erfurt during the fellowship period.
The candidate must propose a research project to be conducted during the fellowship within the framework of the KFG and have an outstanding academic record, at least one published monograph and a minimum of three years of post-doc research experience.
The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
