Warburg International Seminar

The Warburg International Seminar is committed to researching a wide range of topics, usually taking an interdisciplinary approach. The main concern of the seminar is to promote exchange between young researchers and scholars by enabling them to work together on a particular topic. Organized by the Kunstgeschichtliches Seminar at Universität Hamburg and the Aby Warburg Foundation, it is aimed at doctoral candidates working in the history of art and related disciplines. The Warburg Seminar is open to scholars from all over the world and to date participants from five continents have been welcomed in Hamburg.
This innovative form of promoting research by young scholars takes place over two one-week sessions at the Warburg Haus in Hamburg or, if appropriate, at the premises of cooperating international research institutes. During the first week, participants present their papers, which are discussed by the group, and subsequently expanded and revised in preparation for the second week. During the latter session, participants work together to edit all of the submitted texts. Since 2014, the finished works have been published in the series Mnemosyne: Schriften des Internationalen Warburg-Kollegs.
