iSLanDS PhD bursary

8 April, 2017

The iSLanDS Institute has advertised a PhD bursary with a deadline for applications on 30th April. For full information see this link:

This interdisciplinary PhD project explores the relationships between the implementation of capacity building measures in deaf communities in the Global South on the one hand, and the (subjective) experience and (objective) manifestations of agency by deaf people on the other hand. The aim is to track the ways in which deaf people with active roles in applied linguistics projects enact, perceive, and extend the level of their agency, which is understood as people’s capacity for conscious individual and collective goal-directed action in context.

Candidates should have (or expect to hold) a Master’s degree or equivalent in a subject area relevant to the project, and must have sign language skills. The successful applicant must start on 1st July 2017.

For further information, contact the Director of Studies Prof Ulrike Zeshan at
