Mitchell Institute Senior Research Fellow, Dr Eva Urban, invited to join the organizing committee for the British Academy-Humboldt Stiftung Frontiers of Humanities symposia.
The British Academy has agreed with the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung Foundation to hold a Frontiers of Humanities symposia in 2019 and Mitchell Institute Senior Research Fellow, Dr Eva Urban, has accepted an invitation to become one of the four UK members of the Organising Committee. The Organising Committee members are responsible for the selection of the session topics, as well as the overarching theme for the symposia, and speakers on those topics (two from the UK and two from Germany).
The symposia will run from 2-5 May 2019 in Germany and the series brings together outstanding young scholars from different humanistic disciplines to reach new frontiers of understanding by discussing recent research questions across disciplinary lines. The symposia also aim to strengthen and build ties between participants and provide opportunities for future collaborations and networking. On this occasion, we are looking to bring together researchers from geography, literature, anthropology and history.
