The Fulbright-Botstiber Award in Austrian-American Studies is a flexible combination of teaching, advising students, collaborative research, and/or enhancing institutional collaboration that entails teaching one or more 90-minute (the equivalent of two Austrian academic hours) class sessions per week. The format, content, and level of the individual courses (advanced undergraduate and graduate), associated activities, and research focus are negotiated on a consensual basis with the host institution, contingent upon the grantee’s interests and expertise and the host institution’s needs.
The purpose of the Fulbright-Botstiber Award in Austrian-American Studies is to promote the understanding of the historical relationship between Austria and the United States. Therefore, it is open to all scholars of Austrian and American studies whose project proposals contribute toward this objective in terms of combining teaching and research. Fulbright Austria and the Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies (BIAAS) are particularly interested in soliciting applications in the fields of history, the social sciences, economics, and law but also welcome qualified applications from other disciplines, including but not limited to literature, music, and the arts.
Lectures are in German or English. Some knowledge of German is desirable.
