Britain, the British Empire and Migration
Der Lehrstuhl für Neuere und Neueste Geschichte (Prof. Wenzlhuemer) führt in Kooperation mit dem Deutschen Historischen Institut London die Summer School 2023 durch.
The summer school is a part of the on-going collaboration between the German Historical Institute London and the Ludwigs-Maximilian University, Munich. The course convenors are Professor Tanja Buehrer (LMU Munich) and Dr Indra Sengupta (GHI London). The course will take place at the German Historical Institute London on 25-28 July 2023. It is aimed at advanced BA or MA students of history, English or other related subjects at all German universities. An interest in the history of the British Empire and the history of migration in the modern world is desirable.
Please note: Selected participants will be expected to attend all the classes. The course language is English and participants will be required to study the mandatory readings (around 15 chapter/article length pieces) to prepare for the classes. The readings will be sent out a few weeks ahead of the course.
The course is open to students from all German universities. However, a separate selection process applies to students from the LMU who should directly contact the convener Professor Buehrer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please apply in writing by 7 March with the following documents:
- A cover letter of 1-2 pages explaining why you wish to take part in the summer school;
- A brief letter of recommendation from your supervisor;
- A list of courses you have attended and exams you have taken
The organisers will bear the cost of accommodation in London and sandwich lunch will be provided on the days of the summer school. It may be possible to make a small contribution towards the cost of travel to the UK. Unfortunately, we are unable to cover any other costs. We strongly advise successful applicants to book their trip to London as soon as possible, in order to avail of the best prices.
