Dartmouth Summer Institute

One Week Summer Institute: June 20-26, 2022
Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire

Director: Professor Donald E. Pease (Dartmouth College / honorary BAA member )
Executive Director: Professor James E. Dobson (Dartmouth College)

The Bavarian American Academy funds two PhD-students or postdocs to participate in the "The Futures of American Studies Institute" at Dartmouth College. The Summer Institute will take place as in-person format, if the COVID-19 pandemic situation allows it. For travel and accommodation the BAA awards a scholarship of €1,150 ($695 tuition and €500 travel grant).

The Summer Institute provides a shared space of critical inquiry that brings the participants' work-in-progress to the attention of a network of influential scholars. Read here what some of our fellows say about their experience.

See Dartmouth College's website of "The Future of American Studies Institute" for more information on the program
