The Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture at Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) is currently considering applications for funded doctoral positions in the PhD program in Cultural Mediations for the fall of 2021. Deadline: ongoing (while funding is available) until July 19th, 2021. Domestic applications only (Canadian citizenship/permanent residency) or cotutelle.

The PhD in Cultural Mediations fosters theoretically informed approaches to art and culture that cross traditional disciplinary divides. The program builds on training in interdisciplinary methodologies and specific disciplines to provide unique opportunities for innovative doctoral research. Selecting from four areas of specialization (Literary Studies, Musical Culture, Technology and Culture, Visual Culture), Cultural Mediations students have the freedom to blend courses and pursue research projects that call for interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives. The program is housed in the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture. Known as ICSLAC, the Institute is a haven for intellectually rebellious researchers. It offers a collegial, vibrant and creative environment, where doctoral students can draw from an accomplished and eclectic academic community, get involved with an active network of Canada Research Chair and research centres, as well as contribute to talks and seminars transcending conventional boundaries. In addition to funding packages offered upon admission, many Cultural Mediations students are successful recipients of external grants.
