The Graduate School at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for 2 PhD fellowships expected to begin on September 1st 2009 within the following areas:
1) Syrian TV-serials: Since the early 1990s, a private Syrian TV industry has emerged producing serials for Arab satellite TV. The PhD project proposal should be centered on this new phenomenon. The project can analyze the production environment, the production and content of the serials themselves, or the reception of the serials by Arab audiences.
2) Islam in Arab Media: The project proposal should have a special
emphasis on how various expressions of Islam affect the Arab Media.
Potential studies could take up production environments, e.g. specific
TV channels or web portals. It could also be centred on particular
genres, media-personalities or audiences.
It is expected that the applicants for both fellowships have a
thorough knowledge of Arabic and English. The thesis may be written in
Danish or English. The PhD program is a three year program.
