Call: 2017 Westminster Institute for Advances Studies - International
Research Fellowships in Critical Digital & Social Media Studies

The Westminster Institute for Advanced Studies (WIAS) is an academic space for independent critical
thinking beyond borders. It is located at the University of Westminster in
the heart of London. Prof Christian Fuchs is its Director. The WIAS’
research focus is critical digital and social media studies.

The Westminster Institute for Advanced Studies has an open call for
international resarch fellows who during a 3 month stay in 2017 conduct
critical studies of digital and social media's role in society.

The WIAS aims to contribute to bringing about a paradigm shift from big
data analytics to critical digital and social media research methods and
theories. Digital and social media research at WIAS uses and develops
critical theories, is profoundly theoretical, and discusess the political
relevance and implications of the studied topics.

The WIAS’ Critical Digital and Social Media Studies Fellowship Programme is
aimed at current and future research leaders, who engage in independent
critical thinking. It enables them to undertake independent and
collaborative research on original topics in a stimulating academic
environment in London.

Funded scholarships are only awarded as a result of open calls. Priority
will be given to well-defined projects that result in published research
outputs and demonstrate benefits for the applicant, her/his university and
the University of Westminster's research interests.

The regular scholarship duration is 3 months (start between 9 January and 1
May 2017). Later start dates are not possible.

Application deadline: Friday October 28, 2016
