The theme for this fellowship is 'indigeneity across boundaries'. The successful candidate will study this topic ethnographically. Possible projects approaches are - but not limited to - studying the symbolic and phenomenological aspect of 'boundaries' in general; focusing on how arbitrary boundaries positively or negatively affect the fates of indigenous people within or without those boundaries; understanding how the relational quality of boundaries define both the person as well as social imagineries; comparing the career of the term indigeneity across a North-South axis in one or more sites; or specifying how boundaries hold a double-edged quality that often fragments solidarity while creating new hierarchies.
The position is not restricted to any ethnographic region.
