The Center for Interdisciplinary and Intercultural Studies (CIIS), University of Tübingen, invites doctoral students of all CIVIS member universities to become Junior Fellows in Intercultural Studies for the academic year of 2020/21 and pursue a programme collaboratively organised by the Universities of Athens, Bucharest and Tübingen. The topic is: “Belonging – the meaning of a fundamental structure of the human being in the 21st century”. The program starts on October 2020 and runs through July 2021.
Applications are welcome from philosophy, literature, cultural studies, sociology, political sciences and neighboring subjects. Applicants should be doctoral students at one of the CIVIS member Universities (exceptionally, master students may be accepted). The application deadline is 15 October 2020.
Applicants must be willing to pursue the entire course program and attend the July-workshop with a presentation of their own research project.
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 CIIS to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fellowship consists of two modules:
An online course with weekly virtual sessions during the semester terms of the academic year 2020/21 on “Belonging. Recent Perspectives in Phenomenology”. The course provides general insight into recent developments and perspectives in phenomenology yet focusing on the topic of “belonging”. Dates: Oct 2020 – Jan2021 and Mar 2021 – Jun 2021. Day and time: Thursdays 4-6pm (CEST/CET)

Date: 26-30 July 2021.
