Call for Applications: Translation and Transitions. Legal Practice in 19th Century Japan, China, and the Ottoman Empire
The Max Planck Research Group “Translation and Transitions. Legal Practice in 19th Century Japan, China, and the Ottoman Empire” invites researchers of related fields to work with the group for a period of 1-3 months in the calendar year 2020.
The research group has started its work in 2017. Its aim is to compare the legal transformations that took place in 19th and early 20th century Japan, China and the Ottoman Empire. Even though not being colonized, all three countries faced the pressure to adopt Western standards.
Applications are possible for researchers of any stage, starting from advanced PhD students who have been working on their project for at least two years.
Please contact for further information the head of the research group Dr. Lena Foljanty (email@example.com). If you are interested in this program, please send a description of your project (2-3 pages) and a CV before 31st May 2019 to the same email address.
