Research opportunities – Diaspora studies
The Marie Curie Initial Training Network called Diasporic Constructions of Home and Belonging (CoHaB) recently held a Summer School at the University of Northampton. Following the CoHaB Summer School open lectures on diaspora studies the following research opportunities have been identified as supporting this area of study:
The Jean Monnet Fellowship funds postdoctoral research of early career researchers for one to two academic years in various subjects such as governance, development and migration studies. They fund 2000Euro per month as well as certain incurred expenses, taxes and relocation. You are also expected to live in Florence for the duration of the Fellowship in order to take an active part in the academic activities of the Centre.
The British Institute for the Study of Iraq invites applications for its pilot project, research and conference grants studying Iraq and neighbouring countries. Pilot project grants are designed to fund a short research project of up to one year in duration with the potential to grow and gain support from a large funding body. Projects related to the theme of exile and return are particularly welcome.
