Joint Fellowship at IIAS and African Studies Centre in Leiden

Deadline: 15 March 2016
Open to:  researchers  in the social sciences and humanities
Fellowship: monthly grant to cover the cost of living and housing

Description

This fellowship is jointly offered by IIAS and the African Studies Centre in Leiden, Netherlands. It aims to attract researchers whose work is informed by current theoretical debates in the social sciences and humanities. Particularly interesting are fellowship proposals that go beyond a mere analysis of current issues associated with African-Asian comparative economic developments or Chinese investments in Africa -although none of these themes, if appraised critically and for their societal consequences, will of course be excluded. Fellowship is of maximum 6 months. 

Eligibility

  • Candidates should have a PhD degree;
  • Researchers whose work is informed by current theoretical debates in the social sciences and humanities over global connectivities;
  • Able to critically engage with shifting paradigms  in “area studies” beyond the ways in which these have traditionally been conceived in the West.

Fellowship

Fellows will receive a monthly grant to cover the cost of living and housing.
