PhD Position at the UvA Faculty of Humanities ARTES - CEDLA

What are you going to do?

You will be working as a full-time PhD researcher for four years on a project of your own making, connected to our new research line on securitization, punitive politics and contestation in Latin America. Your PhD project will be related to current societal, cultural and/or political transformations in the region. It will include at least one of the following topics:


  • Violence and (in)security

  • Surveillance and confinement

  • (Forced) migration

The project can be a single country case study, multi-sited or comparative in its design, preferably located in Central America. It can also include a transnational perspective. Most importantly, we are looking for conceptually strong and methodologically innovative proposals that are ethnographic in orientation, but can include digital, mixed method, action or other research components. +INFO
