*Second Augustin Hirschvogel Fellowship at the Institute for East and
Southeast European Studies in Regensburg (2017)*
In 2017, the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) for
the second time awards the Augustin Hirschvogel Fellowship. The IOS
encourages applications from historians, geographers, cartographers and
scholars of cognate disciplines, who focus on Eastern or Southeastern
Europe. The duration of the research stay is up to four weeks. As part
of a mutual agreement with the institute, the fellow is expected to
contribute to the development of GeoPortOst by testing and exploiting
it. GeoPortOst is the IOS gateway for historical maps, printed in books
and published for the first time digitally in GIS format. The amount
allowance is determined by the length of stay and the applicant's
Augustin Hirschvogel (1503–1553) was a German cartographer, who produced
maps of Southeastern Europe (Carniola, Croatia, Bosnia and Hungary) and
Eastern Europe (maps for /Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii/ by Sigismund
von Herberstein). Moreover, the oldest map of the IOS library's stock
(from 1575) is a work by Hirschvogel.
The Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS,
www.ios-regensburg.de) in Regensburg is an independent research facility
with close links to the University of Regensburg. It conducts
interdisciplinary research in the historical, economic and political
developments of Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Another significant
feature is the institute's distinctly international orientation.
Furthermore, the IOS maintains a special library holding a stock of more
than 320,000 media units of literature in humanities and social sciences
relating to the countries of Eastern and Southeastern Europe.
Together with the University of Regensburg, the institute provides an
attractive research environment in a city known for its high quality of
life. Regensburg has one of Germany's largest preserved medieval cities
holding the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
