In the framework of the H2020 project “We are all Ayotzinapa”: The role of Digital Media in the Shaping of Transnational Memories on Disappearance”, the Department of Cultural Studies of the Faculty of Arts of the KU Leuven is looking for:
- Postdoctorate Researcher in Media Studies;
- PhD student in Legal Studies/Social Sciences/Human Rights;
- PhD student in Cultural Studies
to complete the research team.
In order to answer these questions, the project investigates a novel case that is in process of shaping: the disappearance of 43 students in Mexico in September 2014. The role of the new media in getting citizens’ attention and in marking a “turning point” was crucial to the upsurge of a counter-movement against the Mexican government and qualifies the event as significant for the transnational arena.
Due date for application: 31st October 2016
Start date: 2nd January 2017
