The Institute for European Global Studies of the University of Basel, Switzerland, welcomes applications for three Visiting Fellowships (three months in the academic year 2017, starting in spring or in autumn) in the field of European Global Studies, with special focus on the topic area "Contesting Sovereignty: Statehood, Governmentality, Assemblages".

The Institute for European Global Studies is an interdisciplinary research institute at Switzerland's oldest university, the University of Basel. It develops new interdisciplinary concepts and methodologies designed to critically examine European integration as well as the relations that have shaped Europe in connection with other continents. We welcome applications from researchers who are interested in investigating actors and agencies in global contexts and who enjoy adopting a conceptual approach beyond the nation-state.

Applications should both fit the Institute's general research perspective on Europe in its global contexts and engage with a project from the overall topic area of "Contesting Sovereignty: Statehood, Governmentality, Assemblages". Debates on globalization and transnationalization have made it clear that there is a strong need, at present, to reflect upon the restructuring of the nation-state and its alleged "monopoly of power". Europe represents a puzzling case in this respect: phenomena such as migration, European integration, and the problems of transnational capitalism call for empirical and theoretical work on the restructuring of sovereign power in Europe in exchange with other continents and spaces. We therefore welcome proposals which focus on the restructuring of sovereign power and government in Europe in its global contexts and relations. This may include, for instance, sociological and anthropological approaches to statehood, focusing on state power from a perspective based on social relations rather than on the monopoly of power. Applications on "contesting sovereignty" should be related to one of the following fields:

transformations in the governance of capital and of economic flows as a central element to understand the restructuring of sovereign power within and beyond Europe
research in the field of political and social theory
reconfigurations of social and political relations as important factors for the construction of sovereignty in a "Global Europe" (this includes the current economic and political crisis of Europe with relation to global contexts)
re-regulations of sovereign power (rather than its de-regulation) as a key feature of contemporary transnational processes
Prospective Visiting Fellows will benefit from the excellent academic conditions and exchange with international colleagues. They need to have completed their PhD and have an established track record in the research field of Europe in its global contexts and should have cultivated the ability to think "outside the box". Ideally, a Fellow’s project will provide fresh stimuli for his/her field of expertise, also in terms of methodological input. Visiting Fellows should be keen to share and discuss their research. The Institute for European Global Studies strongly encourages women scholars to apply. The Fellowship includes funding.

Applicants can learn more about the Institute at www.europa.unibas.ch. For your application, please use the standard proposal form for your project proposal and your CV. Incoming applications without the standard form cannot be considered. Please submit all of your application documents in one email to: fellowship-eib(at)unibas.ch. The deadline for applications is August 14, 2016.

For questions please contact: fellowship-eib(at)unibas.ch.
