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.
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 in the field of British Cultural Studies (PhD theses, Habilitationsschriften, second book). Please send your submissions (two copies of the thesis typescript/book, plus (examiners’) reviews) to the president of the association:
Prof. Dr. Christian Huck
The studies must have been evaluated (in case of the ‘second book’: published) within the 24 months prior to the deadline.
Deadline: 15 April 2021
Date: 19–21 November 2020
Organisers: Saarland University (Saarbrücken)
Deadline: 8 March 2020
