Call for Applications | Special Edition of the Alfred Landecker Lecturer Program

Alfred Landecker Lecturer Program
Monday, 15 August, 2022

Deadline for submission of applications: 15 September 2022


For a special edition of the Landecker Lecturer program the Alfred Landecker Foundation is pleased to invite applications from highly qualified postdocs with Ukrainian, Russian, or Belarusian citizenship (or long-time residents) in the humanities and social sciences, for a fulltime lecturer program set to begin in the 2023 academic summer semester.

The aim is to provide up to three lectureships. The selection process is led by the Alfred Landecker Foundation’s Academic Council.


The program


The program’s mission is to support outstanding, cutting-edge research by individuals on the following topics:

  • the history and aftermath of the Holocaust
  • the social and political transmission of memory of the Holocaust
  • the influence of conspiracy ideologies and
  • group-based enmity (for example antisemitism and racism) as a structural threat to democracy.

Because there is no lack of research on such matters, we are in this call explicitly looking for applications with innovative approaches that relate to present-day challenges regarding the politics of memory and democracy. We are also interested in projects that deal with the methods and practices for educating and imparting knowledge about history and threats to democracy in the digital age.
