The Botstiber Compact Seminar in Austrian Studies at the UC Berkeley Institute of European Studies

The Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies (BIAAS) is pleased to announce The Botstiber Compact Seminar in Austrian Studies at the UC Berkeley Institute of European Studies.

Applications for the position of Visiting Professor to teach the newly created Botstiber Compact Seminar in Austrian Studies are now open. Interested applicants should propose a topic for the compact seminar, which will take place over five weeks, related to Austrian literature, history, or culture, in the broadest sense. Interdisciplinary approaches and themes are encouraged. The Botstiber Compact Seminar is an official UC Berkeley course, offered for credit (2 units), to graduate students and advanced undergraduates from all UC Berkeley Departments. The course will have three hours of instruction per week plus office hours for meeting with students. During his/her stay, the selected Visiting Professor will also give a public lecture—the “Botstiber Lecture”—at the Institute of European Studies. The lecture should refer to the historic relationship between the United States and Austria, including lands of the former Habsburg Empire, in accordance with BIAAS’s mission.

The first Botstiber Compact Seminar in Austrian Studies at UC Berkeley will be offered in the Spring 2022 semester (February-April 2022). Click the link below for detailed application information and instructions.
