The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) is now accepting
applications for the 2012 Fulbright German Studies Seminar<>. The topic is
"Nation-State and European Identity" and the application deadline is October
14, 2011.

The Fulbright German Studies Seminar offers U.S. scholars the opportunity to
meet in Germany to discuss current issues facing Germans, Europeans and the
broader international community. The 2012 seminar on “Nation-State and European
Identity” will explore questions related to the evolving definition of identity
within Germany and Europe.  Throughout the seminar, scholars will examine the
influence of the European Union on German identity, hear from experts about how
concepts of national and regional identity are being challenged and whether
competing identities can be reconciled. The majority of the program will take
place in Berlin but visits to other regions will also be included.

Eligible candidates include scholars from U.S. universities, colleges, and
community colleges who hold full-time teaching appointments and a Ph.D., or
equivalent professional/terminal degree, in a field related to the seminar
topic. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. The seminar will be held in English
and will take place June 12 - 23, 2012. More information about this award can
