We are dedicated to investing in innovative approaches to address contemporary challenges facing democracy and the politics of memory. A greater understanding of the events that led to the systematic murder of six million Jews and millions of other innocent victims can help us grapple with these challenges today. With this in mind, the foundation announced the creation of the Alfred Landecker Lecturer Program in May 2020.
The program’s mission is to support outstanding, cutting-edge research on the origins, modes of action and aftermath of the Holocaust, and on the social and political transmission of its memory.
We have invited applications from highly qualified postdoctoral researchers, from the fields of history, political science and social science, to apply for a lecturer program launching on October 1, 2020.
The program funds four university lectureships across Europe and in Israel, each of which will receive funding for five years. Four successful candidates from the initial round of applications have been selected by the Alfred Landecker Foundation's Academic Council.
We will announce the first class of Alfred Landecker Lecturers and their projects soon.
