Call for applications

Reference number: KFG 03/2019

The Kollegforschungsgruppe (KFG, “DFG-Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities”)
„Religion and Urbanity. Reciprocal transformations" at the Max Weber Centre for
Advanced Cultural and Social Studies of the University of Erfurt (Max-Weber-Kolleg) invites
applications for fellowships for the time period between 1 September 2019 and 28 February
2021. Fellowships are granted for a period of 3 to 6 months. Fellows must reside in Erfurt
during the fellowship period.

The KFG 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.
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.

To be eligible for a fellowship, the candidate must propose a research project to be
conducted during the fellowship within the framework of the KFG and have an outstanding
