JOB: Visiting professorship on political theologies at Stanford

Call for applications

Focus area: "Political Theologies: History, Religion and Law in Modern Germany"


The Gerda Henkel Visiting Professorship at Stanford's Department of German Studies is open to faculty members at German universities with distinguished scholarly accomplishments in a historical humanities field other than literature, e.g. History, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Art, or Music History.

Applicants for the 2010-2011 academic year should demonstrate a specific interest in the broad area "Political Theologies: History, Religion and Law in Modern Germany". Specializations may include topics such as the Kulturkampf, Weber's sociology of religion, the problem of the Weimar Center, or broader questions of charisma in politics.

The Gerda Henkel Visiting Professor will normally be on research leave from his or her home university and will be appointed at Stanford for one academic quarter (three months) to be scheduled at mutual convenience. A stipend is available to help defray costs of the visit.

The Visiting Professor will be expected to offer two courses, at least one of which will be designed for graduate students, while the other will be defined in terms of departmental needs. Each visitor will be fully integrated into the academic and intellectual life of the department, including participation in colloquia. In addition, the Visiting Professor will deliver one formal lecture, advertised to the university community and open to the public.

The academic quarters for 2010-2011 are autumn: 20 September-10 December; winter: 3 January-10 March; and spring: 20 March-8 June.
