New awards by Humboldt Foundation

We welcome Professor Peter Fineran from the University of Otago as a member of our association: he was awarded a Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researchers earlier this year. Peter’s Fellowship is held at the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research in Würzburg.

Markus Friedrich, Professor of European History at Hamburg University, has received a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship from the Humboldt Foundation to come to Otago in February and March 2020. During his visit to Otago, Professor Friedrich will work on a monograph on early modern European genealogical practices and give a series of public lectures entitled “Genealogy between religious experience and social practice”.
