Beschreibung* PhD scholarships in German at the University of Edinburgh *

In 2013 the German section at the University of Edinburgh will be nominating
a candidate for a 3-year AHRC PhD scholarship in German Studies. Candidates
working on comparative topics involving German Studies are also very welcome
to apply. The closing date for scholarship applications is 15 February 2013,
and scholarship candidates must have applied and been offered a place for
PhD study at Edinburgh by the end of February.

We also encourage prospective PhD students in German to apply for
scholarships in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures. The
School will be awarding 10 fully-funded scholarships at the Home/EU rate,
and overseas students are also welcome to apply. Students can also apply for
PhD studentships from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The
closing date for applications is 1 February 2013.

We are able to offer supervision on a very broad range of topics including
Medieval literature; German literature and mental health as well as
disability studies; theatre, film and censorship; German-Jewish and
German-Turkish writing; Holocaust writing and translation; travel/migration
writing and cultural exchange; and gender and masculinity studies. Our
innovative Edinburgh German Yearbook, planned and edited within the section
and published by Camden House in the USA, attracts high-profile academic
contributors with their cutting-edge research. Postgraduates in German
founded and regularly edit the School's peer-reviewed postgraduate journal,

Edinburgh has excellent library resources, with access to the National
Library of Scotland - a copyright library - as well as the University
Library. The University has recently acquired the Karin McPherson collection
of GDR literature, which comprises some 1000 volumes and is accessible for
research purposes.

Our regular research seminars feature papers presented by Edinburgh staff
and postgraduate students as well as invited speakers from the UK and
abroad. Colleagues are increasingly involved in activities that foster
knowledge exchange between the University and the public. The one-day
symposium 'Making a Difference' at the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film
Festival in Edinburgh brought together German, Scottish and Irish
filmmakers, writers and scholars as well as psychiatrists and
psychotherapists and led to fruitful exchange between these disciplines. The
film series 'The Stasi Are Among Us' featured at the Glasgow Film Festival
and was accompanied by discussions with East German filmmakers on working
under socialism in the GDR.
