We offer international guest researchers the opportunity to conduct research at the ZeM and support them with a scholarship for up to 12 months.

We are particularly interested in the scholarship for Turkish media scientists, which was announced for the first time in autumn 2017. As a sign of scientific freedom and against the spread of populism and authoritarian rulership, the ZeM directorate has therefore decided on a funding programme that is intended to allow two Turkish media and film scholars or artistic-researchers inside the media sector who are directly affected by the repressive policy of the Turkish government to continue their research work in a transitional period.

We especially thank the Welcome Center of the University of Potsdam and especially Claudia Rößling and Karolin Switala for the great support in the organization! We would also like to thank Prof. Dr. Christine Hanke from the University of Bayreuth for their professional advice!
