CfA for the Visegrad Scholarship at OSA in AY 2023/24 is open!

In the context of Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against f Ukraine, many analysts have claimed that we face the real end of (or the confirmation) of the Cold War and its dichotomies. We invite historians, researchers, political scientists, sociologists, and socially engaged artists, to do research at the Blinken OSA Archivum in Budapest, Hungary, and reflect on the Lessons from the Cold War by taking cues from the Archivum’s holdings. Applicants are encouraged to address the connections as well as the differences between current times and the past, linking contemporary epistemic and political crises to past modes of inquiry and activism.

Lessons of the Cold War? Submission deadline for the 2023/2024 academic year: July 25, 2023

Who can apply?

Applicants, preferably but not exclusively, from a V4 country, may be researchers, students after their second degree carrying out research, or artists, journalists, academics, or both. Scholars at risk from war zones as well as refugees of conscience (scholars fleeing authoritarian regimes) are especially invited to apply.

About the Fellowship

The twenty grants of 2,700 euros each are designed to provide access to the Blinken OSA Archivum in Budapest, Hungary, and to cover travel to and from Budapest, a modest subsistence, and accommodation for a research period of eight weeks. Stipends for shorter periods are pro-rated.
