FOR APOCALYPTIC AND POST-APOCALYPTIC STUDIES (CAPAS) 2023-24
Application Deadline: 1 August 2022.
The Käte Hamburger Centre for Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Studies (CAPAS) is a Centre for Advanced Studies at Heidelberg University. It gathers international scholars and scientists to research collaboratively on ideas and experiences of the doom of worlds and their aftermath. Our mission is to encourage the dialogue between the humanities and the social, natural and life sciences, relating to (A) the apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic imaginary (ideas, images, discourses), (B) historical events that were perceived or framed as (post-)apocalyptic experiences, and (C) current, empirically observable developments that could bring about the end of the world as we know it, and its aftermath scenarios. CAPAS is dedicated to innovative research relevant to society at large, particularly in areas beyond traditional academic boundaries. For further information
