Through the cooperative projects of Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School, several international scholars are associated with the Graduate School.
Depending on the project’s profile and the (nature of the) cooperation, associated scholars are provided a work space at the Graduate School, can use the school’s technical equipment, and plan & conduct events together with the management and the school’s scholars.
DFG funded Research Projects: Research grants enable individuals who have completed their academic training to conduct research projects with clearly defined topics and durations, regardless of the subject, at any time.
DramaNet: The DramaNet Project, funded by an ERC Advanced Grant, seeks to investigate early modern European drama and its global dissemination through the theoretical conceptualisation of the cultural net.
Einstein Visiting Fellowships: Einstein Visiting Fellows are international leading scholars who through their expertise augment excellent areas of Berlin scholarship. Their longer-term involvement in the Berlin academic landscape promotes the worldwide visibility of Berlin as a scientific location. Read more on the Einstein Foundation Berlin page.
Interweaving Performance Cultures: Established in August 2008, the International Research Center investigates the Interweaving of Cultures in Performance in the broadest sense. The topic refers to the whole range of processes and phenomena in which different cultures meet through performance, continuously producing various and specific differences, thus profundly questioning fixed concepts of cultural identity.
TEEME: TEEME is an international doctoral programme in early modern studies funded by the European Union. It is structured around a unique collaboration between university-based researchers in the Humanities and the cultural and creative sector in four EU countries (United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic).
Travelling Traditions: Travelling Traditions is a research field of Europe in the Middle East – The Middle East in Europe (EUME), a research program at the Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien that attempts to lift the literatures of the Near and Middle East out of the circumscribed disciplinary frameworks of both Area Studies and national philology, and insert them into a comparative critical framework that sees texts and traditions as dynamic, worldly products circulating across geographical, historical and cultural borders. As such, the project will examine questions of translation, canonicity and the formation of national traditions, as well as the varieties of textual practices shared by what are often reified as discrete and stable civilizational zones (West/East; European/Islamic).
Zukunftsphilologie: Zukunftsphilologie takes a new look at previously marginalized precolonial scholarship from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe and supports neglected branches of philological research. With the tools of a postdoc program, a seminar series, work discussions and winter academies, different Berlin based research institutes and universities concerned with philological research shall be connected as well as academics and scientists who either work on neglected regions or come from them.
