Application for IDK Philology

IDK Philology

The IDK Philology: Practices of premodern cultures, global perspectives and future concepts, located at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, pursues the goal of comparing European concepts and practices of philological work with traditions in Egypt, the Near East, the Far East and the Indian subcontinent as well as in the Jewish and Arabic world. We seek to compare their similarities and differences and to work out continuities and discontinuities. Doctoral students gain access to a research environment that stimulates inventive approaches and encourages excellent results.
In addition to working on the dissertation as an independent research project, the doctoral students complete an accompanying curriculum (including compulsory and elective components), acquire both philological competencies as well as IT and DH competencies and contribute to the development of an e-learning tool, World Philology (learning software).
