Vienna Jerusalem Graduate School 2021

The Place of Memory – Memory in Place

The Center for Austrian Studies at the European Forum at the Hebrew University and the Austrian Academy of Sciences/Institute of Culture Studies and Theatre History invite early postdocs, PhD candidates, and advanced Master’s students from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and universities in Austria to apply for the third Vienna‐Jerusalem Graduate School. This joint project offers the opportunity to present and discuss current research projects in the fields of memory studies, media studies, history, political science, German studies, and Austrian studies with fellow early career scholars and international experts.

The third Vienna‐Jerusalem Graduate School focuses on the complex relationship between space and memory. We invite proposals dealing with memory in relation to the concept of place, including museums, monuments, memorials, urban topographies, historic sites, virtual environments, augmented landscapes, and social media spaces. We are especially interested in discussing the intersections between memory and space as they enfold in particular places of memory as well as practices of placing memories.
