Call for ASC-IIAS Fellowship Application

This fellowship is jointly offered by IIAS and the African Studies Centre in Leiden.

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

Application deadline : 15 March and 15 September of each year
