The ‘Social Relevance of the Humanities’ (RevHum) fellowship program, proposed jointly by the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia and the New Europe College Bucharest and developed with the financial support of the Porticus Foundation, aims to underscore the cognitive functions of the humanities and their potential as critical disciplines by opening them up to issues relevant in/for the contemporary digital world – issues that are “practical”, but also epistemological, ethical, philosophical, etc.
The program is intended to accommodate the broadest range of themes pertaining to humanities and social science disciplines provided that they link up to contemporary debates about or major challenges to the human condition stemming from technological advances and ‘digital modernity’.
Be non-Bulgarian citizens;
Have completed a Ph.D. in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences;
Have international research experience (participation in projects and refereed conferences) and publications in peer-reviewed academic editions are strong advantages.
As an international academic institution, CAS conducts most of its work in English, which is also the language of fellow seminars. Therefore, a good command of English is required.
