Call: 2017 Westminster Institute for Advances Studies-International 
Research Fellowships in Critical Digital & Social Media Studies



The Westminster Institute for Advanced Studies (WIAS) 
www.westminster.ac.uk/wias is an academic space for independent critical 
thinking beyond borders. It is located at the University of Westminster 
in the heart of London. Prof Christian Fuchs is its Director. The WIAS’ 
research focus is critical digital and social media studies.

The Westminster Institute for Advanced Studies has an open call for 
international resarch fellows who during a 3 month stay in 2017 conduct 
critical studies of digital and social media's role in society.

The WIAS aims to contribute to bringing about a paradigm shift from big 
data analytics to critical digital and social media research methods and 
theories. Digital and social media research at WIAS uses and develops 
critical theories, is profoundly theoretical, and discusess the 
political relevance and implications of the studied topics.

The WIAS’ Critical Digital and Social Media Studies Fellowship Programme 
is aimed at current and future research leaders, who engage in 
independent critical thinking. It enables them to undertake independent 
and collaborative research on original topics in a stimulating academic 
environment in London.

Funded scholarships are only awarded as a result of open calls. Priority 
will be given to well-defined projects. The regular scholarship duration 
is 3 months (start between 9 January and 1 May 2017). Later start dates 
are not possible.

Application deadline: Friday October 28, 2016
