CfA for the Visegrad Scholarship at OSA in AY 2023/24 is open!
In the context of the current invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing tragic war, 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 reflect on the Lessons from the Cold War by taking cues from the Blinken OSA collections. Applicants are encouraged to reflect on the connections as well as on the differences between current times and the past, linking contemporary epistemic and political crises to past modes of inquiry and activism.

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 archives for scholars, artists, and journalists, 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.
