PhD supervisors 2019-2020

Gender Studies faculty with specific calls for phd students for 2019-20

CEU’s PhD program in Comparative Gender Studies welcomes applications that propose thesis research from the broad and interdisciplinary field of gender studies. Here is the list of faculty members who are welcoming new PhD students in specific fields of research for the academic year 2019/2020. However, please note that the department's supervisory capacity is not limited to the listed faculty members, and an applicant does not need to secure or decide on a supervisor in advance. 

Eszter Timar

I am interested in supervising dissertations which work with queer theory, its relevance for political thought, affect theory (especially inspired by Silvan Tomkins), and new materialism/posthumanism, and especially, but not necessarily, a combination of these with deconstruction. I am also seeking projects which explore the gendered aspects of immunological thought within continental philosophy, as well as projects involving deconstruction and feminist theory. I welcome any combination of the above, including projects featuring literary analysis.

Eva Fodor

Applications are welcome from prospective students who are interested in a theoretically guided yet empirically focused (qualitative, quantitative or both) study of any labor market or welfare state institution and gender.  A global perspective is an advantage. Students must have demonstrated academic training in some social science methodology as well as an in-depth understanding of social theories related to gender and the specific institutions of interest, and display a scholarly, not merely policy-oriented, interest in these issues.

Judit Sandor

I am interested in supervising projects in a range of areas involving new developments in the complex relationships between neuroscience, law and gender; changing understandings of the meaning and implications of recent scientific and scholarly work on the connections between genes, gender and society; and the impact of emerging technologies on recent turns in bioethical thinking.

Please note that following faculty member will be on sabbatical and will not take new PhD students in the academic year 2019/2020.
