The CRC Scholarship Programme

The scholarship programme of the CRC 1015 Otium supported distinguished junior researchers from abroad to develop their PhD projects in the CRC’s interdisciplinary research environment. For a period of up to 12 months, the scholarship holders could work on projects that were connected to the CRC and which analyzed otium and its boundaries, chronotopes and practices from a systematic or historical perspective. During their time at the CRC they participated in the training programme offered by the Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) as well as the discussions and activities of the CRC in general.
