Norbert Elias Fellowships for Researchers from Africa

New funding format at ZiF

Science needs diverse perspectives. However, researchers from African countries are still underrepresented in the international scientific community. In order to increase the diversity of perspectives in the ZiF research groups and to make African researchers more visible, the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) is now offering two scholarships per year for researchers from Africa: the Norbert Elias Fellowships.

Successful applicants will become fellows of the current ZiF research group for up to ten months, during which they will live and work at the ZiF. Applications are welcome from senior researchers and postdocs from African universities from all disciplines whose research and publications are closely linked to the research group’s topic. Deadline for applications for the Norbert Elias Fellowships for the ZiF research group "Global Contestations of Women's and Gender Rights", convened by Professor Dr. Alexandra Scheele, Professor Dr. Julia Roth and Professor Dr. Heidemarie Winkel, is 28 February 2020. The research group will be working at ZiF from October 2020 to July 2021.

The Norbert Elias Fellowships are supported by the VolkswagenFoundation.

The call and an interview with the Managing Director of ZiF, Professor Dr. Véronique Zanetti, can be found here.

Sociologist, philosopher and poet Norbert Elias (1897-1990) developed the theory of the ‘Civilization Process’ and worked at the ZiF as a permanent fellow for six years. Elias, who had to emigrate to England in 1933 and was later working in the Nether-lands, held his first chair at Accra University in Ghana.
