CES Visiting Scholars in Residence

The Center for European Studies Visiting Scholars in Residence program affords scholars at various stages in their academic career the opportunity to spend extended periods of time at UNC-Chapel Hill. This opportunity allows for research and professional development for visiting scholars, strengthening ties between CES and departments with similar goals in the US and abroad. Visitors will benefit from UNC-Chapel Hill’s world class library system, working with the center’s TransAtlantic Masters students and affiliated doctoral students, and partnering with leading faculty in various EU fields. CES Visiting Scholars in Resident are fully integrated in the activities of the center’s activities, participating in working groups, giving guest lectures and public talks, and teaching courses, when appropriate.
