Mariia Orobinska shortly after her arrival in Erfurt: "I highly appreciate the prompt support of Erfurt University in this extraordinary situation and also the professional attitude and empathy that I experienced when communicating with representatives of this institution".
In early March 2022, the research group "Religion and Urbanity" quickly opened a fellowship for early career researchers at risk during the current war. In addition to a monthly honorarium and accommodation, a workplace at the Max Weber Centre will also be provided. During her time in Erfurt, Mariia Orobinska will pursue a research project in the field of literature studies on the linguistic construction of cult and religious places in modern Ukrainian and British literature. She will also participate in the KFG research programme and shared events.
