The German Historical Institute Washington, the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University, and Villa Vigoni - German-Italian Centre for the European Dialogue are pleased to announce the 26th Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar in German History. The seminar will take place at Villa Vigoni in Loveno di Menaggio, Italy, on May 25-29, 2020. Conveners: Anna von der Goltz (Georgetown University), Christiane Liermann Traniello (Villa Vigoni), Corinna Unger (European University Institute, Florence), and Richard F. Wetzell (GHI Washington).

The seminar will bring together junior scholars from Europe and North America who are nearing completion of their doctoral dissertations. We plan to invite up to sixteen doctoral students from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss their dissertation projects. The organizers welcome proposals from doctoral students working on any aspect of the history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century German-speaking Central Europe or on topics in European, transnational, comparative or global history that have a signi­ficant German component. For the 2020 seminar we especially invite proposals that connect German and Italian history. Doctoral students working in related fields – including art history, legal history, and the history of science – are also encouraged to apply. The discussions will be based on papers (in German or English) submitted six weeks in advance. The seminar will be conducted bilingually, in German and English; therefore fluency in both languages is a prerequisite. The organizers will cover travel and lodging expenses.
