Conference Announcement:  "US and European Philanthropy after 1945. Historical Research and the Role of Foundations",

When: 14-15 February 2014,

Where: Berlin, Free University Berlin, Henry-Ford-Bau, Akademischer Senatssaal

Deadline for Registration: 10 February 2014

 

Organized by Arnd Bauerkämper (FU), James Allen Smith (RAC) and Gregory R. Witkowski (IU), the conference will deal with the impact of American philanthropy on academic renewal and scientific philanthropy in Europe after 1945 in comparative perspective. The interaction between American philanthropic organizations like the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations and West German foundations like the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft from the late 1950s onwards will receive particular attention. Beyond investigations of the immediate and long-term impact of the transatlantic exchange, the presentations are to initiate and further a more continuous dialogue between researchers and practitioners .
