The Austrian-American Educational Commission (Fulbright Commission) and the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota are pleased to request applications for a visiting professorship for an Austrian scholar at the University of Minnesota for the academic year 2017-2018. The Fulbright Visiting Professor for 2017-2018 will be affiliated with the Center for Austrian Studies, an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research facility for Austrian, Habsburg, and Central European studies established in 1977 as a bicentennial gift of the people and government of Austria to the United States, and the College of Liberal Arts.


This collaboration is based on a memorandum of understanding concluded by the Austrian Fulbright Commission and the College of Liberal Arts in 2001 and renewed in 2010. This visiting professorship was conceived to rotate among departments in the College of Liberal Arts affiliated with the Center for Austrian Studies. The focus for the academic year 2017-18 will be on issues of immigration/migration in the social sciences and humanities.
