The Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences of Tilburg University, Tilburg, The Netherlands, invites applications for a four-year PhD position (1,0 fte) in continental political philosophy, the philosophy of culture, or cultural studies, starting  November 1,  2018 or later this year, on the topic of social media and the public sphere.

The candidate is expected to have written a PhD thesis on the topic of social media and the public sphere by the end of the contract.

  • Philosophy of Law; Critical Theory; Democratic Theory.

This PhD project explores possibilities for democratic communication in an age of social media and digital technologies. The project explores how social media and digital technologies can facilitate free communication among equal members of democratic publics, and it explores how social media and digital technologies can undermine such free communication, for instance through bots and trolling and by providing platforms for narratives, symbols, and sentiments of inequality, particularly of race, religion, gender and sexuality.

The deadline for applications is August 31, 2018. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by the third week of September. (Skype) interviews will be held around the beginning of October. Candidates will be notified as soon as a decision is taken.
