Diverse Europe: Call for Visiting Scholars


The Diverse Europe Theme Group offers stipendiary visiting scholarships to excellent scholars who are conducting research related to diversity and Europe in the social sciences, humanities or law. Visiting scholars spend up to a month in Amsterdam, during which time they are expected to give a research seminar, a public lecture, and a PhD master class, as well as to interact with faculty and students. For a full month’s visit, ACES offers an honorarium of 6000 euros, which is intended to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and subsistence; the honorarium is prorated for shorter visits. The visiting period is between September and December 2020.


Applicants should email the following documents to the Theme Group Leaders prof. dr. Rob van der Laarse, dr. Liza Mügge and prof. dr. Annette Schrauwen:
