Call for participants: Academy for African Urban Diversity

The AAUD supports a new generation of scholars in the humanistic social sciences pursing research that advances knowledge about mobility and urban diversity in Africa. We welcome applicants from all social sciences disciplines, including but not limited to anthropology, contemporary history, sociology, political science, economics, human geography, urban studies, and planning. We also encourage applicants from other disciplines who engage expressly with urban theory. Applicants should have completed data collection by the time of the academy, and be in the initial phase of the write-up period. While we push for theoretical engagement, projects should be empirically grounded.

Eligibility
  • Must be currently enrolled in a PhD program.
  • Must have completed an extended period of empirical research not more than 12 months before the academy begins and is expected to submit a completed dissertation within 12 to 18 months of the first Academy date.
  • Ability to converse and write in English, the academy language
  • Must be willing and able to travel to South Africa and Germany on the academy dates
The AAUD provides all travel related costs for those selected to attend.
