24 November 2016

Dr Duane Jethro, a historical studies postdoctoral fellow based in the Archive and Public Culture Research Initiative, has been awarded a Georg Forster Research Fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Through prestigious fellowships like this, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fosters collaboration and cooperation between excellent scientists from Germany and abroad.

Dr Jethro will be working with Professor Sharon Macdonald at the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMaH) at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Professor Macdonald is a leading scholar of museums and heritage studies, and is the author of, among others, Memorylands: Memory and Identity in Europe Today and Behind the Scenes at the Science Museum.

Starting in March 2017, Dr Jethro’s two-year project, titled Aesthetics and Difference: Heritage, Social Diversity and Change in Berlin, will look at the shifting aesthetic appeal of heritage formations in a context of diversity and urban change.
