Call for Researchers | MOBILE SPACES, POROUS BORDERS, AND PATHWAYS OF REGIONALIZATION 

WiSER invites proposals for two-year Research Program (2020-2022) on

MOBILE SPACES, POROUS BORDERS, AND PATHWAYS OF REGIONALIZATION

Thanks to generous funding from Carnegie Foundation (USA) and the Gerda Henkel Foundation (Germany), WISER is launching a major interdisciplinary and multi-regional research program called Regions2050: Mobile spaces, porous borders, and pathways of regionalization.

Coordinated by Professor Achille Mbembe, the Program includes 34 researchers and straddles the traditional divide between Francophone, Anglophone, Arabophone and Lusophone scholarly communities. It also transcends the divide between Sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa while reconnecting the African continent to the Southern Atlantic and Indian Oceanic worlds.

The program is opened to scholars from various disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, environmental and health sciences, economic geography and technology studies in their early-mid career. Successful candidates will be paid an honorarium. They will belong to a team, but are expected to remain in their home institution from where they will conduct their research.

The deadline for applications is 4th September 2020.

A candidate is only allowed to apply in one Cluster.
