Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe" Uni Heidelberg, Heidelberg
Deadline: May 1st, 2008
The Graduate School for Transcultural Studies (GSTS) is part of the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe in a Global Context: Shifting Asymmetries in Cultural Flows" at the University of Heidelberg. The objective of the Cluster is to examine processes of cultural exchange with a strong focus on interdisciplinary research. The Cluster challenges the master narrative of asymmetrical Western domination along with its historical explanation, its methodology and the resulting structures of humanities and social science research. Starting from winter term 2008 the GSTS offers within its doctoral program.
16 Doctoral/PhD Scholarships in Transcultural Studies
The doctoral program addresses applicants with above-average university degree whose PhD-project fits in one of the Cluster's four Research Areas. Currently contributors to the Cluster work in the fields of Anthropology, Archeology, Art History, South and East Asian Studies, Assyriology, Cultural Studies, English Philology, Ethnology, Geography, History, Indology, Islamic Studies, Musicology, Philosophy, Political Science, Public Health, Religious Studies, Sinology, Sociology and others. Reflecting the interdisciplinary approach of the Cluster, the GSTS invites M.A. holders from these as well as other disciplines from the humanities and social sciences to apply.
