Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme, Application Deadline 1st February 2019
The international Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme awards fellowships to doctoral students who carry out research into the history and culture of Central European Jewry. We welcome projects on any period or field (including literature, philosophy, history, musicology), and any region, as long as they relate to German-speaking Jewry. In addition to financial support for one year, the programme provides opportunities to exchange ideas with peers from around the world. It is open to doctoral candidates of any nationality, studying at any university. Fellows receive a stipend of 1,350 € a month. In addition a monthly research allowance of 100 € is available. Fellows can also apply for supplements for health insurance (max. 100 €/month) and childcare, as well as travel allowances to support research tips and participation at conferences abroad. Contributions to tuition fees outside Germany may also be granted.

German Studies at the University of Melbourne and Monash University present a performance commemorating the centenary of the end of World War I in Germany. Directed by Nores Cerfeda, with music by James Cleverley, German Studies students present various scenes from the works of Bertolt Brecht and Ilse Langner, as well as letters retrieved from German soldiers on the front. The performance is in both English and German, so come along, no matter your English/German abilities, and gain new perspectives on a war that is rarely seen from the side of those who lost.
