The International Research Training Group (IRTG) ‘Temporalities of Future in Latin America: Dynamics of Aspiration and Anticipation’ is part of the Institute of Latin American Studies of Freie Universität Berlin. The Mexican-German interdisciplinary project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and works in close cooperation with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Universität Potsdam, El Colegio de México, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and the Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social in Mexico City.
The International Research Training Group aims at developing a new perspective to explore temporalities of the future within the humanities and the social sciences. The emerging field of research is expanded to include the two dimensions of global interconnectedness and cultural heterogeneity that characterise Latin America. The focus on the aspirations and anticipations of various actors whose interactions produce new temporalities of the future offers an innovative research approach and a necessary inclusion of subaltern and non-Western practices. The cooperation with Mexican institutions allows a multi-pronged investigation of temporalities of the future in colonial, postcolonial and contemporary Latin America and promotes their joint empirical and theoretical exploration within an innovative interdisciplinary framework.
We welcome applications from the following disciplines: History, Political Sciences, Literature and Cultural Studies, Sociology, Social and Cultural Anthropology, Economics and Historical Education Studies.
The Berlin-Potsdam area offers an exceptional and internationally renowned research and training environment in the field of Latin American Studies. The Dahlem Research School (DRS) of Freie Universität Berlin provides further opportunities for interdisciplinary training.
