Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society Fellowships

Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich

The center awards fellowships to post-doctoral scholars from a variety of countries and disciplines. Applicants' research and writing should ideally pertain to the central theme of the RCC: transformations in environment and society. Research at the RCC is concerned with questions of the interrelationship between environmental and social changes, and in particular the reasons - the social, political, cultural, and environmental factors - behind these transformations. The concept of "transformations" gives us an adjustable lens that allows us to keep in our sights a vast range of changes - from the quick adjustments in human behavior that interest sociologists to the gradual changes over millennia that are central for geologists and climatologists, and of course the short- and long-term shifts that fascinate historians and philosophers. All fellows are expected to spend their fellowship in residence, to work on a major project, to attend the weekly lunchtime colloquium, and to present their project at the center. Please note that for all fellowship types, the RCC does not sponsor field trips or archival research.
