International Research Award in Global History
Together with the Institute for European Global Studies at the University of Basel and the Laureate Research Program in International History at the University of Sydney, the Munich Centre for Global History is bi-annually advertising the International Research Award in Global History.
The award wants to support innovative young researchers and aims to give them the intellectual freedom and the financial means to bring together scholars from all over the world to engage with a topic of their own choice and design. It seeks to make the scholarly work of the awardee visible in the scientific community and put them in closer contact with established colleagues in their field. Beyond supporting the research and academic networks of the prize-winning scholar, the award symposium contributes to the field's ability to critically reflect and intellectually replenish itself. The award also aims to reach out to an academic public beyond the sub-discipline of global history and provide a broader stage for the pioneering research currently undertaken in the field.
