Norwegian/Australian scholarship offer for research on Indian Cosmopolitan Alternatives

September 21, 2021 - 09:36

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Technology Sydney, Australia, announces a doctoral scholarship in the research project ”Indian Cosmopolitan Alternatives: Ritual Intersections and the Proscription of Religious Offense”. The overall purpose of the project is to examine the supposedly cohesive implications of ritual engagement across religious communities as well as of the regulation of expressions that offend religious sentiments. The candidate will be part of an international group of eight researchers exploring these issues in various locations in contemporary India, each researcher undertaking a relevant case study based on independent fieldwork. The successful candidate will work on a discrete but related project based in India and has autonomy in choosing the case study and the field site.

The research project is anchored at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Bergen, and funded by the Research Council of Norway. However, this scholarship is based at the University of Technology Sydney and is for three years (extendable by six months if appropriate). As well as writing a PhD dissertation, the successful candidate is expected to participate in the project workshops and conferences, contribute an article to at least one of the joint project publications, and write occasional op-ed length articles for our planned project website. Applicants for the scholarship must also apply to be admitted to the PhD degree at UTS.

Applications are welcome during the perid 1 June – 1 August 2014. More information.
