CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The PhD programme “Entangled Temporalities in the Global South”offers 3 PhD scholarships for 3 years
The PhD programme focuses upon temporality as one of the central categories upon which social and cultural difference is constructed. Within the context of a trans-regional approach to Global South studies, the PhD programme explores the way temporal relations are marked via complex entanglements between temporal politics, practices and imaginaries arising from a range of contexts — the homogenizing impact of globalized time, the longue durée of coloniality and the persistence of Indigenous temporal cultures.
PhD students will carry out research on selected case studies from the disciplinary areas of literary, cultural and media studies, and anthropology, within the framework of three thematic clusters: “Subject and Community”, “Mediality and Performativity”, and “Historicity and Futurity”.
Application documents should be sent via email to the convenor of the PhD programme,
