Klaniczay and Laszlovszky Win Grants for Project on Communication and Knowledge Transfer in Medieval Monastic Networks
Professors Gabor Klaniczay and Jozsef Laszlovszky from the Department of Medieval Studies at CEU won a DAAD- (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdiens) and MOB- (Hungarian Scholarship Board) funded academic cooperation grant of €13,000 and HUF783,000, respectively, for student and faculty mobility with the Research Center on Comparative History of Religious Orders at the Technical University of Dresden. The grant will allow for a two-week scholarship in Dresden for 12 PhD students from the department, with CEU hosting a similar scholarship for students from Dresden. Also, both universities will organize two workshops each in 2015 and 2016, with the participation of 15 faculty members and PhD students. Problems of communication, transfer of ideas and materials, hierarchical structures of religious orders and monastic networks will be researched and discussed in the framework of the four workshops.
