Anika Walke, the Georgie W. Lewis Career Development Professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has won a  senior fellowship in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie FRIAS COFUND Program.

The program is jointly sponsored by the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies, the international research college of the University of Freiburg in Germany, and by the European Union, as part of a larger group of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. Designed to promote interdisciplinary research and collaborations, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are among Europe’s most competitive and prestigious research and innovation fellowships.

While at the Freiburg Institute — a German analog to the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J., or the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard — Walke will work on a new book project exploring the legacies of the Holocaust and systematic violence during the German occupation of Belarus, 1941-44.
