Ph.D. opportunities in Social Anthropology, Archaeology and History
The International Max Planck Research School for the Anthropology, Archaeology and History of Eurasia (IMPRS ANARCHIE), a cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, offers:
Openings for PhD students
starting 1st of October 2017
The projects of the fourth cohort of the IMPRS ANARCHIE will be devoted to the topic of Representing Domination and will explore how various modes and processes of communication and contestation with regard to (legitimate) domination are determined by practices of representation and by the (usually heterogeneous and often conflictual) dynamics that have shaped these practices of representation through space and time. Students will tackle varying forms of representation, approached as a basic form of human social interaction, by examining and comparing their spatio-temporal variability in past and present Eurasia.
The IMPRS ANARCHIE is open to students from all countries and offers an international three-year PhD programme (with the possibility of extension) in a stimulating research environment. Highly motivated M.A. graduates in Social Anthropology, Archaeology, History or a related discipline are encouraged to apply.
Application deadline: April 30th, 2017
