“Studentships“DPhil Studentship in Anthropology or Migration Studies, School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, University of Oxford. Deadline: January 22, 2021.

Applications are invited for a DPhil studentship in anthropology or migration studies. This studentship will be for a maximum duration of 3 years and include a stipend and research expenses of no less than £36,000 per annum (with additional support during the fieldwork year). Starting in October 2021 this studentship will be within the framework of the European Research Council project “Emptiness: Living Capitalism and Democracy After (Post)Socialism.” Funding from the European Research Council means that applicants of all nationalities are eligible for this project. If/when Brexit occurs, the project will be supported by the UK Government under identical rules.

The DPhil student will be part of a research team led by Dr Dace Dzenovska and hosted by the University of Oxford’s School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography and the Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society. Under the supervision of Dr Dace Dzenovska, the student will be responsible for developing and carrying out their own original project in Ukraine, Belarus, or Russia (other locations within the former socialist world may be considered) within the overarching analytical and methodological frame of the project. The student will also undertake collaborative work with other team members. The project will study the emptying cities, towns, and villages in Eastern Europe and Russia through the lens of “emptiness” as a concrete historical formation that has emerged in conditions when socialist modernity is gone and promises of capitalist modernity have failed.
