Because of the pandemic, the Einstein Forum’s summer program will be moved to the fall season. Over the coming months we will keep the debates going by other means. Our website continues to feature a regularly updated selection of staff picks from our archive as well as video interviews in which former Einstein fellows talk about the impact of the months they spent in Caputh. Starting in June we will add new online discussions and short lectures. In keeping with the spirit of our series Solidarity in Danger, these will highlight the work of freelance scholars. 


After Caputh. Einstein Alumni Today


The Einstein Forum awards an annual fellowship to a young thinker who wishes to pursue a project in a field different from their previous research. Funded since 2010 by the Daimler and Benz Foundation, the Einstein Fellowship has supported outstanding young people from many different disciplines and all five continents. Albert Einstein’s summer cottage in Caputh has enabled fellows to work on their projects free from any formal obligations. Susan Neiman recently interviewed past fellows, asking them to look back at their time in Caputh and talk about their current work.
