Presentation

The Integrated Graduate School of the Collaborative Research Centre/ SFB 1150 “Cultures of Decision-making”, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) at the University of Muenster since July 1st 2015, is offering  four visiting fellowships for postgraduates / doctoral candidates in 2016 for a period of up to six months, starting in April 2016. The fellowship is EUR 1.365 per month (tax-free; if applicable plus children’s allowance; statutory accident insurance cover according to § 2 Abs. 1 Satz 1 SGB VII; health and social insurance not included) with an additional grant for traveling expenses. For the time of the fellowship the visiting fellows are members of the Integrated Graduate School of the SFB 1150 and are expected to participate in the programme of the Integrated Graduate School as well as in the common activities of the SFB 1150.

The Collaborative Research Centre/ SFB 1150 “Cultures of Decision-Making” examines the social practice und the cultural conditions of decision-making in a historical-comparative and interdisciplinary perspective from the Middle Ages to the present. The SFB 1150 addresses decision-making as a form of social action which is neither self-evident nor invariant, but which is based on changing social and cultural conditions. In the SFB 1150 different historical “cultures of decision-making” are reconstructed by examining selected social fields, asking: how decision-making was framed, modeled, performed and reflected in different historical contexts; what the culture-specific conditions underlying decision-making were in every case; in what ways it in turn shaped the institutional and power structure of society; and how and why cultures of decision-making changed over the long term. The SFB 1150 comprises three Project Areas and 20 projects from several disciplines (History, Literature, Law, Philosophy, Cultural Anthropology, Jewish and Byzantine studies) as well as a Graduate Centre.
