To encourage and acknowledge young researchers’ work in the field of British Cultural Studies, the German Association for the Study of British Cultures endows a prize worth up to EUR 1000 for the best new monograph (PhD theses, Habilitationsschriften, second book).
Please send your submissions (two copies of the thesis typescript/book, plus (examiners’) reviews) to the address below. The studies must have been evaluated (in case of the ‘second book’: published) within the 24 months prior to the deadline of 30 April 2023.
Prof Dr Susanne Gruß Englisches Seminar 1 Universität Köln Albertus-Magnus-Platz 50923 Köln Germany
Date: 12–13 May 2023 Place: University of Innsbruck
All talks will also be streamed via Zoom for those who are not able to attend in person, but the organisers would like to encourage attendance in Innsbruck to facilitate discussions and networking as central workshop elements.
The German Association for the Study of British Cultures has signed the open letter “Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz abschaffen – Grundfinanzierung der Universitäten stärken.” The joint statement on the precarity of academic careers in Germany calls for an open discussion and reform of the German law on fixed-term contracts in academia, not only in the wake of the #IchBinHanna movement.
The texts, tables and images presented here accompany the publication of the 2021/1 issue of the Journal for the Study of British Cultures: “Histories and Trajectories: British Cultural Studies in Germany”. The documents were selected by the author of the essay “How Cultural Studies Came to Germany” either because they are difficult to find, or simply for their visual poignancy.
If you have any issues with (or questions about) the documents, please contact the web admin by email. All images can be enlarged by clicking on them, and longer documents are provided as PDFs.
