Associated guest and junior researchers
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 and conduct events together with the management and the school’s scholars.Currently, the following associated scholars are working at FSGS or are connected to the school:
- Burcu Alkan (Postdoc, EUME)
- Hala Auji (Postdoc, EUME)
- Cornel Borit (Doc, MOVES)
- Nick Courtman (Doc, Einstein Stiftung Berlin)
- Iulia Dondorici (Postdoc)
- Agnieszka Helena Hudzik (Postdoc, DFG)
- Zahiye Kundos (Postdoc, EUME)
- Stef Lenk (Doc, Einstein Stiftung Berlin)
- Jan Lietz (Doc, Einstein Stiftung Berlin)
- DS Mayfield (Postdoc, Thyssen)
- Rana Raeisi (Postdoc, AvH)
- Simon Schleusener (Postdoc, Einstein Stiftung Berlin)
- Fatemeh Shams (Postdoc, EUME)
- Arata Takeda (Postdoc, DFG)

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.
MOVES - Migration and Modernity: Historical and Cultural Challenges: MOVES - is a European Joint Doctorate (EJD) funded by the European Union. More information can be found here.
EUME / Travelling Traditions: EUME / Travelling Traditions is a research field of Europe in the Middle East – The Middle East in Europe, 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.
