The ASC-IIAS Joint Fellowship Programme
This fellowship is jointly offered by the International Institute of Asian Studies (IIAS) and the African Studies Centre in Leiden, The Netherlands.
It aims to attract researchers whose work is informed by current theoretical debates in the social sciences and humanities over global connectivities and who are able to critically engage with shifting paradigms in “area studies” beyond the ways in which these have traditionally been conceived in the West.
We are particularly interested in receiving fellowship proposals that go beyond a mere analysis of current issues associated with African-Asian comparative economic developments or Chinese investments in Africa — although none of these themes, if appraised critically and for their societal consequences, will of course be excluded. Our definition of Asia and Africa is broad and inclusive, Asia ranging from the Middle-East to the Pacific Coast, and Africa from North-Africa to the southern tip of the continent.
• Fellowship of maximum 6 months
• Fellows will receive a monthly grant to cover the cost of living and housing
• Applications include a work plan of 1000 words maximum and a CV
• Candidates should have a PhD
The ASC-IIAS fellowship is intended for researchers specialising in Asian-African interactions. Interested applicants are invited to email/post their applications, consisting of:
