This interdisciplinary funding program aims to place current problem situations facing shrinking and entirely abandoned “lost cities” in historical context. It focuses not on the question of which factors led to a city’s abandonment, but rather on the abandoned cities themselves, as well as the different forms of their interpretation, instrumentalization, and coding in various cultures and timeframes. Applicants should be part of research groups in the humanities and/or social sciences. OFR Contact: Chloe Taft Kang; Amount: Not specified; based upon award type and length; Deadline: 5/24/23.
