FASPE : Changes to 2021 Fellowship Announced & Deadline Extension

CHANGES TO THE 2021 FASPE FELLOWSHIP: The FASPE program will launch with a virtual workshop in the spring, and culminate with an intensive week in Germany and Poland in the fall, visiting key historical sites in Berlin and Krakow, as well the site of the Nazi extermination camp Auschwitz.  Fellows will participate in rigorous seminars led by experts in their respective fields and examine the roles their professional counterparts played in Germany and elsewhere from 1933-1945, and then draw on historical, cultural, philosophical, literary and discipline-specific sources to explore the ethical issues facing their fields today.

Virtual workshop: 
FASPE Law will begin with 3 consecutive days of virtual workshop during the timeframe that the Fellowship was originally scheduled (May 21-June 4, 2021). These interactive and dynamic sessions will provide the opportunity to learn about the history of the Nazi-era from experts, to understand more deeply the significance of the sites FASPE will visit, and to engage in challenging and thought-provoking discussion of contemporary ethical issues with Fellows, faculty, and guest speakers.   The 3-day workshop will be followed by once-a-month 90 minute sessions in June, July, August, and September.
