HIIG Fellowship 2018 – Internet and Society
In 2018, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) once again opens its doors for fellow scholars! We are looking for individuals from diverse backgrounds and professional experiences who want to contribute to the range of the institute’s transdisciplinary internet research. We particularly encourage early stage researchers to apply.
The international HIIG Fellowship “Internet and Society” offers a unique opportunity for innovative thinkers who wish to engage in the exchange of research experiences and to set up new initiatives. Based in the heart of Berlin, the HIIG provides a dynamic intellectual environment for fellows to pursue their own research interests and actively shape their stay. We also invite fellows to collaborate with a growing international team of researchers and to participate in the activities at our institute. We offer a number of opportunities to share and discuss ideas. This includes:
- writing and publishing papers in one of our open access publications
- commenting on current developments in your field in form of HIIG Blog posts
- holding presentations in one of our Lunch Talks
- organising expert workshops with your peers
- engaging in joint activities and projects with other fellows
For our 2018 class of fellows, we will consider applicants who want to pursue topics that fall within one of HIIG’s main research areas. We would like to ask all applicants to respond to one of the following themes in their research outline. Please read the information on each of the websites closely, and position yourself and/or your project within a key area that best suits you.
- The evolving digital society: What are relevant concepts and theoretical approaches?
- The relationship between actors, data and infrastructures in the digital society: What are key factors of change?
- The knowledge dimension: What are emerging patterns of research and knowledge transfer in the digital age.
