Appel à candidatures – IGZA Berlin

Lieu: Berlin
Date limite de candidature: 22 janvier 2017
Dates de la bourse: 1er octobre 2017 – 31 juillet 2018

The Institute for the History and Future of Work (Institut für die Geschichte und Zukunft der Arbeit – IGZA) is a foundation recently established by Dr. Horst Neumann in Wolfsburg and Berlin. It supports the study of historical developments, present problems and future perspectives of work and labour. Presently, one of its research fields is dealing with the history, present varieties and future possibilities of working time (Arbeitszeit) in a cross-epochal historical perspective.

In cooperation with the international research center « Work and Human Lifecycle in Global History » (re:work) at Humboldt University of Berlin (funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research) the IGZA invites scholars from different disciplines to apply for research fellowships in order to study aspects of the history of the working time, in Berlin during the academic year 2017-2018. Three fellowships, clustered in a thematic group, will be awarded. Applications are due on 22 January 2017.

We welcome candidates from various disciplines including history, anthropology, law, sociology, political sciences, geography, economics, and area studies. Applicants should be at the postdoctoral level or senior scholars. Applications should focus on questions related to work and working time. Possible topic areas are, among others, the separability and entanglements of working time and other dimensions of life time in past and present, the length, extension and reduction of working time, tensions, conflicts and negotiations related to working time, work processes and the measurement of time in agriculture, industries and service occupations, employment, unemployment and rhythms of life, the relationship between work and non-work/leisure, religious prescriptions and interpretations of work and working time, gender-specific problems of defining and limiting working time, working time and life course, labour rights and labour movements, the reduction of working time from 3000 yearly hours to 1500 in the last 150 years, the transition from crafts and manufacture period to industrial capitalism. We also encourage applications focusing on work and time structures in Pre- and Early History.

We welcome proposals with respect to different historical periods and different regions of the world and especially those that look at comparisons, conflicts, relations between different regions. A global history perspective is not required; keeping an open mind to such approaches, however, is highly desirable.

The fellowships will begin on 1 October 2017 and end on 31 July 2018. Shorter fellowship terms will be possible. Fellows will receive a monthly stipend to be determined. This is a residential fellowship. Fellows are obliged to work at re:work in Berlin. A fully equipped office at re:work will be provided as well as organizational help for visa, housing, etc. During the fellowship, we also encourage fellows to introduce their work to wider audiences within Berlin’s scientific community. The fellows will be fully integrated in re:work’s fellow cohort of the year 2017/18, including colloquiums, workshops, and all other joint activities. Fellows at re:work work on topics related to work and life course in a global perspective. Further information about the center, you will find on re:work’s website:
