Dr. Thomas Pegelow Kaplan, Director of the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies at Appalachian State University, was awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship to carry out long-term research in Germany.
Through the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Dr. Pegelow Kaplan was awarded 10,000 euros and will be hosted from mid May to August by the Technische Universität Berlin's (TU Berlin) Center for Research on Antisemitism. The focus of the institution is the interdisciplinary research of anti-Semitism in its various causes, manifestations and effects in the past and present, as well as research and teaching on prejudices and their consequences such as xenophobia, and racism.
