Network dedicated to the history of the Monastic Economy: Granting of Research Allowances25-04-2018 23:35
The Center for Advanced Study Sofia (CAS) (www.cas.bg) and the Center for Governance and Culture in Europe (GCE) at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences in the University of St. Gallen (www.gce.unisg.ch) have established a NETWORK of scholars from Southeastern and Western Europe devoted to the history of monastic economy. The goal of the NETWORK is to nurture research in this field in a comparative perspective and in view of the longue durée relevance of the monastic tradition for economic culture. The NETWORK supports the creation of a scholarly community by fostering intellectual debates, facilitating contacts and mobility, and bringing together academics from different thematic and institutional backgrounds. Its first workshop was organized and hosted by CAS on November 10-12, 2017.
This Call is addressed to candidates willing to join the NETWORK. Part of its budget (2017-2019) is allocated to the granting on a competitive basis of RESEARCH ALLOWANCES.
