Support Description: Starting April 1st, 2014 the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne, the
Graduate School of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Cologne offers 20 PhD scholarships and 10 collegiate places over a period of three years.

The Graduate School-successful in the excellence initiative-wants to facilitate the completion of the doctorate through a structured program and intensive individual mentorship within an interdisciplinary environment. In doing so, the graduate school follows a concept of the humanities beyond the dichotomy between the so called cultural sciences and the humanities. Of special significance are hermeneutical and historic contextual knowledge models, which comprise the genesis and invention of knowledge, as well as the processes of reception and transculturation and their anthropological and ethical conditions.

Please send applications until October 18th, 2013 (application receipt).
