Heinz Heinen Center for Advanced Study

Scholarships for Post-Docs and Senior Scholars at the Heinz Heinen Kolleg of the Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies

Call for Applications - 2019/2020

The Heinz Heinen Kolleg is a center for advanced studies. It is part of the Cluster of Excellence “Beyond Slavery and Freedom. Asymmetric Dependencies in pre-modern societies” (https://www.dependency.uni-bonn.de/en?set_language=en) funded by the German Excellence Strategy which is aimed at strengthening Germany’s position as an outstanding place for research in the long term and further improve its international competitiveness.

The Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies that hosts the Cluster of Excellence approaches asymmetrical dependencies in different societies in five different Research Areas. These form five different thematic and methodological angles. In each of these Research Areas specific conceptual debates and approaches of the humanities are drawn upon and put to the test for arriving at a new social history of asymmetrical dependencies. For the academic year of 2019/2020 the Cluster will put a thematic emphasis on Research Area A “Grammars of Dependency.” Research Area A  focuses on the textual articulation of dependencies and the production and use of a ‘grammar of dependency’ by making use of the new interest in historical semantics.
