Long-Distance Call: The 2020 Arolsen Archives Online Research Seminar

Call for Applications.

Full access to the unrestricted portions of the Arolsen Archives is only possible through the software OuSArchiv that is normally only available in the reading room of the Arolsen Archives, as well as a limited number of partner organizations worldwide. For this reason, and in order to facilitate academic exchange on current research into the history of Nazi persecution, the Arolsen Archives are, within the limitations of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, organizing an online seminar entitled Long-Distance Call: The 2020 Arolsen Archives Online Research Seminar. For this, we particularly welcome researchers who are in the early stages of their academic career, e.g. MA or PhD candidates. The event will take place via the software Zoom.

The event will take place via Zoom on October 6th and 7th 2020, with a time-window of 10 AM – 6 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time) on both days. If you are interested in joining the seminar, please be aware of the time zone. Dial-in information for Zoom will be provided in advance of the meeting.

Please note that the event language will be English.

Interested candidates are encouraged to send their application via e-mail to historical-research@arolsen-archives.org. Applications should include a brief academic CV and an overview of the project for which you intend to use the Arolsen Archives (1–2 pages in total).

The deadline for applications is August 31st 2020. Participants will be chosen and notified by September 4th 2020.
