CITAS and the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America are pleased to anounce the lanuch of the third edition of the Prize for Outstanding Master's Theses in Area Studies at UR. The prize promotes the development of research and teaching with relevance to area studies in the fields of social sciences, humanities, law and economics. It was awarded for the first time in 2020 and demonstrates the value of the close cooperation between the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) and UR.
Candidates can either nominate themselves or be nominated by their advisors. As well as students taking MA degrees, the prize is open to those completing Staatsexamen (in law for example) or those studying for a teaching degree. The top prize is 400 EUR, with two second prizes of 200 EUR. The deadline for applications is 6 November 2022. Please find the call for applications here in English and here in German.
As well as prize money, the winners also have the chance to publish in the Blog-Journal Frictions. In spring 2021, two texts by Jana Stöxen, who received first place in the inaugural edition of this prize for her study “Legacies of Romanian Socialism”, published two texts there. More details on the previous winners of the Regensburg Area Studies Prize can be on the CITAS page.
