PhD scholarship: Religion, Materiality and the African Diaspora in Australia

Western Sydney University’s Religion and Society Research Cluster is advertising a fully-funded PhD scholarship in the ARC Discovery project “The African Diaspora in Australia: New Perspectives on Materiality, Media and Religion.” Within this larger project, the PhD candidate will conduct ethnographic research with religious communities of African migrants and refugees in Australia. The PhD project will be developed within the fields of diaspora, globalisation and material religion studies. As such, an ideal candidate will be trained in the social sciences and interested in one or more of these topics:

Material culture, the body, religious experiences, the senses, aesthetics, lived religion, ritual practices, infrastructures (e.g., the city, church buildings), mediatisation (traditional and new media), and transnational and translocal connections.
