The fellowship covers a six-month stay at the Collegium Helveticum from mid
October 2002 till mid April 2003.
The Collegium Helveticum is an academic institution for the dialogue
between the sciences and between science, literature and the arts. It
offers a one-year graduate programme for 8 - 10 younger researchers from
the sciences as well as the humanities and invites senior academic guests
for longer periods. The Collegium Helveticum organises seminars, workshops
and symposia on issues involving a transdisciplinary perspective and seeks

social life of the Collegium Helveticum. This includes communication about
artistic processes and an interest in the diverse material and discussions
at the collegium; a command of German and/or English is essential.
During the academic year 2002/2003 the Collegium will focus on the topics
