Fellows spend two weeks in Berlin and Poland, where they visit key sites of Nazi history and participate in daily seminars led by specialized faculty. The program couples the power of place with academic rigor and many informal opportunities for creative exchange. 2020 FASPE Seminary Program Dates: June 12, 2020 – June 26, 2020 (Program starts on the evening of June 12) Deadline to apply: December 30, 2019.
