TitelPromotionsstipendien am German Department der Columbia University, New York
BeschreibungFor fall 2012, the Department of Germanic Languages & Literatures at Columbia University offers

three doctoral fellowships (Ph.D.)

in the field of German literature and culture. Columbia’s department is one of the leading programs in the U.S. and Canada. The course of study incorporates a strong literary and theoretical component with additional strength in media stud-ies and cultural history. The program has a historical focus of roughly 1700 to the present and a flexible emphasis on theory and methodology. Students are encouraged to combine their study of literature, literary theory, and intellectual history with coursework and research beyond t he department. Comparative and cross-disciplinary work can be pursued in conjunction with Columbia’s other graduate programs and numerous specialized institutes. The department has strong ties with the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, and the Departments of Art His-tory and Anthropology. The comparatively small size of seminars guarantees close mentoring of students. All advanced seminars are taught in German.

With its unique cultural offerings, vast library system, museums, and vibrant cultural life, New York is an ideal place to study German literature and culture in a transnational context.

The fellowship offers five years of full financial support, including tuition fees and health insurance. Training and practice in language instruction and pedagogy are an important part of the fellowship.
