Deadline: April 22, 2019

The Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies (Max-Weber-Kolleg Erfurt) at the University of Erfurt is a highly ranked international research centre. Its ‘Weberian’ research programme combines historical, comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives with an interest in normative issues in the social sciences.

The Kollegforschungsgruppe (KFG, “DFG-Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities”) "Religion and Urbanity. Reciprocal transformations" invites applications for fellowships for the time period between September 1, 2019 and February 28, 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. Further information about the Max-Weber-Kolleg and the KFG available at: www.uni-erfurt.de/maxwe and www.uni-erfurt.de/go/urbrel.
