Résidences au Deutsches Museum

Scholar-in-Residence Program at the Deutsches Museum in Munich

Call for applications

The Deutsches Museum in Munich has several attractive scholarships to offer research scholars interested in working for six or 12 months on projects involving the museum`s vast and heterogeneous collections. The scholarship programme is international and interdisciplinary in scope.

There are myriad opportunities at the Deutsches Museum for innovative research into scientific processes and the changing cultures of technology. Founded in 1903, the museum's holdings comprise some 100,000 objects; an archive of 4,500 shelf metres including an extensive collection of scientific photographs, technical illustrations, trade literature and private papers; and a specialist research library with 875,000 volumes, 5,000 journals, and an extensive collection of rare books on te history of science and technology. The museum's collections have evolved over the years, absorbing the instruments, books and archives of individual scientists and engineers as well as of companies and scientific institutions, and reflect bygone experimental systems and cultures of innovation. The unique structure of this collection enables scholars to develop innovative cross-disciplinary methods of research on the basis of texts, images and artefacts available on site and to engage in both the historical and archaeological exploration of science and technology.

Applicants are invited to base their projects on the collections of the Deutsches Museum and to cooperate closely with museum staff on site when formulating their research proposals. Projects involving innovative approaches to artefact-oriented research are especially welcome.

During their stay, visiting scholars will have daily contact with the museum´s curators, archivists and librarians (approx. 50 staff members) as well as members of the Münchner Zentrum für Wissenschafts- und Technikgeschichte (Munich Center for the History of Science and Technology; approx. 50 staff members).

Scholarship holders will have their own workplace with a desktop computer and telephone, and the opportunity to reside temporarily in subsidized apartments of the museum complex insofar as these are available. They will present their research projects to colleagues at the beginning of their stay and will be expected to participate regularly in the museum’s and the Munich Centre’s Monday colloquium series and workshops.

Pre-doctoral stipends: € 7,500 (six months) / € 15,000 (full year). Post-doctoral stipends: € 15,000 (six months) / € 30,000 (full year). Scholars at any level of seniority are eligible to apply, provided they have at least one university degree. There are no restrictions regarding nationality. All scholars are requested to make their own provisions for health insurance.

The ability to read German is a prerequisite for the application (passive language skills).
Application deadline: 13 October 2017

Please send applications, including:
  • completed application form (pdf-file, 20 kB or rtf-file 60 kB)
  • curriculum vitae
  • project description (3 to 5 pages)
  • two confidential references (can be sent directly by the referees)

Les idées hétérodoxes en psychologie

Heterodox Ideas in Psychology

Call for Papers 

Special Issue of the Archives of Scientific Psychology
Guest Editor: Scott Lilienfeld, Ph.D. 

Proposal Deadline: August 30, 2017 

Submission Deadline: December 15, 2017 

Archives of Scientific Psychology requests proposals for submissions for a Special Issue on “Heterodox Ideas in Psychology.” This issue will be devoted to pressing questions and ideas in psychology that have been accorded insufficient attention because they run counter to conventional wisdom in the field. 

The goal of this Special Issue is to encourage scholarly debate and discussion surrounding scientifically important topics in psychology and allied disciplines that have not received the discussion they deserve, and to stimulate constructive debate regarding a host of controversial topics in our field, including those in social, affective, cognitive, personality, clinical, developmental, and biological psychology. 

Articles should be brief, no more than 25 pages double-spaced, inclusive of references. Articles should not provide a comprehensive review of the issues at hand, but should instead raise significant questions concerning the “sacred cows” in a specific domain of inquiry, as well as fruitful directions for scholarship in this area. The articles should be submitted by December 15, 2017. 

About the Journal

La souffrance à l'époque moderne

The hurt(ful) body. Performing and beholding pain, 1600–1800

Edited by Dr Tomas Macsotay, Cornelis van der Haven and Karel Vanhaesebrouck

Publisher: Manchester University Press
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 328 
Published Date: July 2017
ISBN: 978-1-7849-9516-4

This book offers a cross-disciplinary approach to pain and suffering in the early modern period, based on research in the fields of literary studies, art history, theatre studies, cultural history and the study of emotions. The volume's two-fold approach to the hurt body, defining 'hurt' from the perspectives of both victim and beholder - as well as their combined creation of a gaze - is unique. It establishes a double perspective about the riddle of 'cruel' viewing by tracking the shifting cultural meanings of victims' bodies, and confronting them to the values of audiences, religious and popular institutional settings and practices of punishment. It encompasses both the victim's presence as an image or performed event of pain and the conundrum of the look - the transmitted 'pain' experienced by the watching audience.

L'engagement sensoriel au Moyen-âge

Sensational Words: Describing Sensory Engagement in the Middle Ages

Call for Papers

53rd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo
May 10 – 13, 2018

“Sensational Words” seeks to encourage an interdisciplinary conversation not only about how the senses mediate a person’s subjective knowledge of the material world but also about how the medieval languages of sensory experience distinctively communicate and even shape that experience. As scholars have noted, while the sensorial capacity of the human body has likely changed very little, if at all, since the Middle Ages, the sensorial realities of past humans are notoriously difficult to study and relate to, particularly if we must rely primarily on textual evidence of past human perception. One long-standing example is the difficulty of translating Old English color words. Whether a cup is red, or golden, or glittering, or shining (or perhaps all of these things simultaneously) seems impossible to discern, and these options show fascinating possibilities in the way visual qualities were delineated in Old English. How a sensorial experience is perceived of, articulated, and valued is a significant component of human engagement with the world. This panel welcomes papers that explore the medieval experience and valuation of sensorial engagement with the material world through literary accounts, historical accounts, philosophical studies, or archaeological studies. As an interdisciplinary panel, we welcome papers from any stage of the Middle Ages, any geographical location, and any discipline.

Some avenues of inquiries include (but are not limited to):
• What is the relationship to the more trusted senses of sight and hearing to the senses like taste,
touch, and smell, senses that were considered more easily fooled?
• How did a medieval culture apply sense words to experiences or delineate the boundaries of the different
• How does the language of the senses relate to visual representations?
• How do sensational experiences shape practices and records of medical practice, religious devotion, artistic
creations, food cultivation and preparation, etc.?
• How are the medieval senses described as relating to the physical body parts that interface with the
material world beyond the body? To abstract concepts?

Submit abstracts of 250 words, accompanied by a participant information form (available at, to Shannon Gayk at or to Erin Sweany at This session is sponsored by the Medieval Studies Institute of Indiana University.
