Named after the African scholar Anton Wilhelm Amo, this residential fellowship is based in Germany and is open to all scholars with expertise in racial slavery in the southern United States from the colonial period through the American Civil War. Applicants MUST have received their PhD prior to the beginning of their appointment. Both established and younger scholars are encouraged to apply. Fellows are expected to spend the majority of their time in residence at Bonn, Germany, from October 2023 through September 2024. Deadline to apply is April 15, 2023. The fellowship is administered through the BCDSS and application materials must be sent to Bonn; details are below.

The Fellow is a member of the Heinz Heinen Kolleg – Center for Advanced Study at the BCDSS that hosts 10 international scholars whose research focuses on various forms of slavery or severe asymmetrical dependency throughout human history and in various cultural contexts. In addition to working on his or her own research project, the Fellow will teach one course related to their research and hold related office hours for students. Ideally, the Fellow will also complete a significant publication during their residency. The Fellow is expected to participate in the intellectual life of the BCDSS and the larger university community. The Fellow will offer one public presentation during their tenure at Bonn which is recorded for a podcast.
