Visiting Scholarships “Agriculture and the Making of Sciences”

The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, offers several Visiting Scholarships (residential, 3–12 months) to take place within the period from 1 September 2022 to 31 August 2023.

We invite scholars to apply for participation in the working group “Agriculture and the Making of Sciences (1100–1700)” of Department III. The working group explores how agricultural practices informed scientific, technological, and medical change from the twelfth to seventeenth centuries, with special focus on the study of extra-European contexts.
We welcome applications from candidates in every field within history, the history of science and technology, archeology, philology and art history, and with some preference for research that is multilingual and transregional in nature. The working group’s research theme changes annually, and in 2022-23 it will focus on the annual theme of “water”.

Visiting scholars receive a stipend commensurate with experience for their period of residence, and reimbursement for a return ticket to and from their place of residence.
