3 year-doctoral grant on “Techno and Media Ecology of Digital Culture”

Forwarding from Leuphana and Erich Hoerl:

“Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I send the call for an interesting 3 years-doctoral grant on “Techno and Media Ecology of Digital Culture” – this grant is situated at the Digital Culture Research Lab (DCRL) of Leuphana, University of Lueneburg(focus „Re-Thinking the Technological Condition“, whose director I am) as well as at my new Chair of Media Culture at Leuphana’s Institute of Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media (ICAM). Especially participating at the DCRL is a great opportunity for a doctoral candidate, I guess.

And let me please add: this call is completely open! Maybe you know somebody who could be interested in, and please let it circulate.

(And this might be interesting only for some of you: there is an additional german call for another doctoral grant in “Media Studies” at my chair at Leuphana:

Be aware: This is a different call for a different grant!)

All best,

Erich”
