A Doctoral Research Fellowship in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies is available at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages (Institutt for kulturstudier og orientalske språk / IKOS) at the University of Oslo, Norway.
The applicant is asked to propose a project that enters the discursive field in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA), with a particular focus on modern Iran and its transnational encounters. The applicant must be conversant in theories circulating in Middle Eastern studies. The applicant must have proven language competency in either Persian or Arabic, preferably Persian. Knowledge of both is an added advantage. The project may take a specific case study within the region and/or explore circulation of ideas and products across national boundaries. The resulting dissertation is expected to contribute to the field of gender studies as it intersects with capital, race, class, culture, sexuality and/or knowledge via the MENA region and through its geographic and symbolic location. The project will be supervised by Associate Professor Kristin Soraya Batmanghelichi.
