Eligibility: In particular, CEDITRAA is interested in proposals from great junior as well as outstanding internationally renowned academics who may contribute to and complement our research.

  • How does digitization affect cultural production in Nigeria and South Korea? What kind of new cultural practices have evolved under digital circumstances in the cultural production fields of film, literature, and music?
  • Which challenges do these processes pose for scholarship in African and Asian studies?
  • Which new methods need to be developed to conduct research in area studies, and, in particular, which digital methods are suitable to enhance the development of area studies?
