German-Canadian Studies Fellowship


Between 1997 and 2021, the Chair in German-Canadian Studies at the University of Winnipeg enabled nineteen doctoral students, ten Master’s students, and thirty-nine university and community researchers to conduct high-quality research in the field of German-Canadian Studies. Nine outstanding undergraduate students were awarded the German-Canadian Studies Undergraduate Essay Prize for excellent research essays produced for a variety of courses. The Chair awarded one German-Canadian Studies Master’s thesis Prize and five German-Canadian Studies Dissertation Prizes to outstanding graduate students. In 2019, the program established the German-Canadian Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship to conduct research on German-Canadian migration or German-Canadian relations. One excellent candidate began research in the 2019-2020 academic year at the University of Winnipeg under the supervision of the Chair in German-Canadian Studies.

Fellowship recipients have researched a wide range of topics, from an archeological dig at a former prisoner-of-war camp in Riding Mountain, Manitoba to the encounters between West German citizens and Canadian soldiers in West Germany during the Cold War. Other researchers compared the German communities of Buenos Aires and Kitchener, Ontario as well as the German and Canadian media reporting of the Karl-Heinz Schreiber Affair. Others explored the traumatic experiences of German refugee women; studied the image of Canada’s North in German literature; and analyzed changing language use and practices of diverse German-speaking migrant groups. Researchers have explored Canada’s diplomatic role in the reunification of Germany in 1990, the German immigration to Manitoba since 1990, and the intergenerational memory of post-World War Two immigrant families. More recently, researchers have examined Holocaust education in Canada and Germany; Canadian-German labour migration policy; the internment of German-Jewish refugees in Canada; and how German is used as a “heritage” language in a Canadian context. In addition, researchers have begun to examine the role of German immigrants in the colonization of Canada and their interaction with Indigenous peoples. The 2019-2020 postdoctoral fellow studied German-speaking Protestants from Central Europe and their role as settler colonizers in the establishment of the British Empire in North America in the eighteenth century.

Outlined in this report are the publications from researchers that have received funding from German-Canadian studies since 1997. Many of the recipients have become important scholars in the field of German-Canadian studies. Researchers from across Canada, the United States, and Europe have produced numerous monographs, book chapters, and research articles related to the history, culture, and language of German-Canadians. Funding from German-Canadian studies provided each of these scholars an opportunity to advance their scholarly work on Germans in Canada, as well as other important research topics across many disciplines.

Program Background

The Fellowship Program was established in 1997 with grants from the Secretary of State’s program for Canadian Ethnic Studies and a group of private philanthropists within the German-Canadian Community of Winnipeg. 2007 was the first year in which the fellowship program of the Chair in German-Canadian Studies was funded by the Spletzer Family Foundation, Inc. (Winnipeg).
In 2012, two new scholarships were offered for the first time: The German-Canadian History Scholarship (Ph.D.) and the German-Canadian History Scholarship (M.A.). Both are open only to students enrolled at the UofM’s Ph.D. program or the UofM/UofW’s Joint Master’s Program and must work under the supervision of the Chair in German-Canadian Studies. In 2012, two new prizes were offered, at the M.A. and Ph.D. level.
The fellowship program is promoted through several outlets: The German-Canadian Studies Website, Blog, Twitter and Facebook site; the UWinnipeg’s and other universities’ scholarship and grant offices; the international academic news platform H-Net; and advertising posters sent to universities in Canada, the United States, Germany, and Austria.
