In 2022, the «Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen» will launch a new fellowship program on Digital Humanism, funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology.
This recently established research field defines an approach that describes, analyzes, and influences the complex interplay of technology and humankind and aims for a better society and life in the digitized era.
Senior and junior visiting fellows will be invited to the Institute to explore the urgent intellectual challenges at the complex interplay of humans and machines. During their stay at the Institute, they will work on crucial topics in the field, pursue interdisciplinary research, and organize lectures and discussions reaching out to the public audience in Vienna and beyond.
The IWM now launches the call for the second round of applications by Junior Visiting Fellows. Candidates are expected to pursue research on digitization’s intersection with societal, economic, and geopolitical dimensions, as well as other relevant research foci from the humanities and social sciences. Two fellows will be invited to spend a period of three consecutive months at the Institute in autumn 2022.
