The Trans-Atlantic Summer Institutes provide a unique forum for graduate-level students from North America, Germany, and other European countries to explore together advanced topics relating to Germany’s and Europe’s history, politics, and society. Each summer, twelve European and twelve North American graduate-level students work intensively for two to three weeks and explore in depth questions that will enrich their dissertations in German and European Studies. The Summer Institutes are co-taught by a team of faculty and aim to make a major contribution to the training of the next generation of experts on Germany and Europe. They introduce European students to the American university; North American students will acquire a similar familiarity with the European setting. They foster the international discussions and collaborations that are fundamental to the scholarly enterprise. As a student in the Summer Institute, you will learn how to combine the best aspects of training in both settings- the close attention to archival sources and their interpretation in Europe with the broad trans-disciplinary readings that characterize North American scholarship.
