The ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry announces six post-doctoral fellowships on the topic Constituting Wholes within the core project Tension/Spannung. Applications are to be submitted by January 6, 2013.
Wholes are said to be more than the sum of their parts. This ‘more’ contains both a promise and a threat. When different elements – which might also be individuals, cultures, disciplines or methods – form a whole, they not only join forces, but also generate a surplus from which the parts can also benefit. For more information on the project and application details, visit the website.
The ICI Berlin invites scholars from all disciplines to engage in a joint exploration of the critical potential and ambivalent function of wholeness and related notions. We especially welcome applications from individuals who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in scholarly research.

Stipends range from EUR 1650 to 1850 per month.
