The German Historical Institute Washington (GHI) is a member institution of the Max Weber Foundation - International Humanities. It is a distinguished non-university affiliated historical research institute that conducts inter- and transdisciplinary research with a transatlantic focus. Its fellowship program promotes cutting-edge research in history and related disciplines and the international exchange of scholars. The GHI seeks to foster inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation and contributes to the advancement of digital history and digital humanities. In cooperation with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for Digital History and New Media (RRCHNM) at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA the GHI Washington provides a 12-month postdoctoral fellowship in digital history once a year.
The fellowship will provide a unique opportunity for the recipient to develop an innovative research project at RRCHNM, where she/he will be in residence for one year. One of the Center's Associate Directors will work with the fellow to develop a project further and help her/him develop the skills needed for that project. The fellow is also expected to cooperate with the GHI on a regular basis. She/he will participate in the Institute's scholarly activities and its digital projects. Moreover, the fellow will have the opportunity to get in contact with other North American Centers for Digital History or Digital Humanities. The Max Weber Foundation - International Humanities will invite the fellow to organize a workshop on new perspectives in the field of Digital History after completing the fellowship.
