How do aesthetic forms and cultural practices influence the process by which models and imaginations of the future are (re-)negotiated in the Maghreb? How do they reflect disparities? And vice-versa, what influence do societal transformations have on aesthetic and cultural practices? In the context of these questions, MECAM invites applications for its first Interdisciplinary Fellow Group (IFG) "Aesthetics & Cultural Practice". MECAM invites researchers at all career stages with a disciplinary background from the fields of literature, theatre and media studies as well as cultural studies to apply for five short-term fellowships for the period from April to July 2021.
