Creating free spaces ...

... is the central idea of the Historisches Kolleg. Since 1980, it has offered excellent scholars the freedom to research, think, and write for one year (October to September of the following year) to bring a major work to completion. The fellows can work under ideal conditions in the Kaulbach Villa: released from obligations at their universities, at an outstanding scientific location with short distances to excellent libraries, research institutions and archives and, last but not least, in a central but quiet location between the Bavarian State Library and the English Garden.
