Posdoctoral Fellowship Call for Application 2019-20

Call for Applications 2019-20

Postdoctoral Fellowship on the theme of “Historical and Contemporary Expressions of Populism in Africa and Beyond”

We are pleased to announce the 2019/20120 call for applications for a postdoctoral fellowship as part of the University of Michigan/University of the Witwatersrand collaboration “Joining Theory and Empiricism in the Making and Remaking of the African Humanities.” In conjunction with the thematic workshop on “Historical and Contemporary Expressions of Populism in Africa and Beyond” to be held in November 2019 in Ann Arbor, we are seeking a scholar whose work engages the thematic of populism, broadly conceived, with a regional focus on any part of Africa. The postdoctoral fellow will be given the opportunity to pursue his/her individual research project and is expected to participate in the organization of the November workshop. The first half of the postdoc period, from late August 2019 to late February 2020, will be spent in Ann Arbor, MI (USA); the second half, from March to August 2020, will be spent in Johannesburg (South Africa). In both places, the postdoctoral fellow will benefit from the resources and collegial atmosphere of the host universities.
