Excellence Cluster “Contestations of the Liberal Script” (SCRIPTS)

The Cluster of Excellence “Contestations of the Liberal Script” (SCRIPTS) is looking for 4 postdoctoral research fellows for the duration of 10 months in Berlin! The cluster focuses on contemporary controversies about the liberal order from a historical, global, and comparative perspective.

Researchers should have a special interest in the following fields:

• Variations of the liberal script in Latin America, Africa, and Asia, as well as in historical perspectives from these regions
• Contestations of the liberal script within and outside liberal democracies: from European right-wing populism to African communitarianism to China’s economic system
• Global challenges the world is facing in the 21st century, such as migration, the crisis of democracy, growing inequality, and sustainability as well as debates about social and political order.

The application deadline is 30 March 2019
