Call for Proposals / Foundation German-American Academic Relations (SDAW)
Foundation German-American Academic Relations
Saturday, August 31, 2019

Dear all,

The Stiftung Deutsch-Amerikanische Wissenschaftsbeziehungen (SDAW/Foundation on German-American Academic Relations) is soliciting proposals for research projects related to transatlantic relations and/or to issues of concern on both sides of the Atlantic. The Foundation seeks to foster closer ties between scholars in Germany and North America and believes that such collaboration will be productive for scholarship and for building on the historical pillars of strong transatlantic relations.

This call for proposals is aimed at scholars working in the disciplines of the Social Sciences (in particular Political Science or International Relations and Sociology), Law and History, but other related fields are welcome as well, as are interdisciplinary proposals. We invite scholars from North America and Germany to propose collaborative projects to be carried out by junior scholars or a combination of junior and senior scholars on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Foundations is not prioritizing any research themes in particular. Yet in general terms topics which are of relevance to transatlantic relations substantively or to a transatlantic research agenda in scholarly fields would normally be given preference. Both more theoretical and policy relevant proposals will be considered.

The closing date for the receipt of proposals is August 30, 2019. Decisions on proposals will be made in the fall of 2019. Additional information can be found in the attached document.

Feel free to forward this mail to interested colleagues.

We are looking forward to reading your proposals.

Kind regards,

Alexander Passaro
