The German Historical Institutes in London and Washington, D.C., are pleased to announce the ninth Medieval History Seminar, to be held in Washington, D.C., from October 15 to 17, 2015. The seminar is designed to bring together Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D. recipients (2013-2014) in medieval history from American, British and German universities for three days of scholarly discussion and collaboration.
The Medieval History Seminar welcomes proposals from all areas of medieval history. Participation is not limited to historians working on German history or German-speaking regions of Europe. Nor is a particular epoch or methodological approach preferred. Applications from neighbouring disciplines are welcome if the projects have a distinct historical focus.

The seminar is bi-lingual, and papers and discussions will be conducted both in German and English. Participants must have a good reading and aural comprehension of both languages.

The GHI will cover the travel and lodging expenses of the participants.

Applications may be submitted in German or English and should include:

*          a curriculum vitae (including institutional affiliation, address and e-mail);
*          a description of the proposed paper (4-5 pages, double-spaced);
*          one letter of recommendation.

Send applications per e-mail to Susanne Fabricius:

The deadline for submission is January 31, 2015.
