CIVIS invites its PhD Students to apply for Junior Fellows for Intercultural Studies – “The Relevance of Belonging – Global Perspectives”. The programme provides general insight into recent developments and perspectives in phenomenology yet focusing on the topic of “belonging”.
The fellowship is opened for PhD Students in philosophy, literature, cultural studies, sociology, political sciences and neighboring subjects at one of the CIVIS member Universities (exceptionally, master students may be accepted) and consists of two modules:
- An online course with weekly virtual sessions during the semester terms of the academic year 2021/22 on “Belonging. Recent Perspectives in Phenomenology”. The weekly online-course will be offered via Zoom and consists of 24 units, 12 sessions each semester.
- Dates: October 2021-January 2022 and March-June 2022; Thursdays 4-6pm (CEST/CET)
- A one-week-workshop. The workshop is meant for collaboration and academic networking. It gives the Junior Fellows the opportunity to present and discuss their own research with CIVIS Senior Fellows as well as with Junior Fellow-Colleagues from European universities participating in the CIVIS Programme. The workshop will take place at the University of Tübingen
- Dates: 25-29 July 2022
Applicants should send their CV, short outline of their research project (1.000 words) and a cover letter indicating their motivation to become Junior Fellow of the CIVIS to email@example.com until August 15, 2021.
