03 PhD Scholarships: Monetary Orders in Capitalist Modernity 718 views

The Hamburg Institute for Social Research is inviting applications for up to three scholarships for doctoral projects that seek to analyze empirical phenomena of monetary (dis-)orders with the aim of further developing debates on monetary theory. Proposals should focus on studying empirical phenomena that have not yet been considered by research or be dedicated to re-visiting previously explored issues and empirical evidence with new theoretical equipment.

This call for proposals responds to developments in economic sociology, the history of capitalist cultures, political economy, and the anthropology of economic practices, in which modern economic forms are increasingly reflected upon as monetarized economies.

About the scholarship:
  • The scholarships will be awarded for innovative project ideas that deal with empirical cases to critically engage in these theoretical debates and seek to articulate independent positions.
  • Proposals do not necessarily have to be premised on a preliminary decision as to whether money is to be addressed as a medium of exchange, as an “absolute” social means (of exchange), as credit—that is, a creditor-debtor relationship—, as a diverse collection of culturally shaped monetary practices, or in another, very different way.
  • The Institute has a tradition of focusing on the phenomenon of violence. Research projects that can bridge the gap between theoretical debates on violence and analyses of monetary (dis)orders are thus especially welcome.
  • The scholarships carry a monthly stipend of 1400 Euro (recipients will receive supplements for one or more children and may be eligible for further supplements).
  • The scholarships will be awarded for two years with an option for an extension of up to two further years.
  • The earliest date for funding is 1 March 2019.


  • Applicants must have an above-average degree in Sociology, History, Cultural Studies, Political Science, Economics, or a related discipline.


Applications must include the following:

  • Cover letter
  • CV
  • An academic work sample (master thesis, term paper)
  • Certificates and transcripts showing grades for all courses completed
  • An outline of the proposed doctoral project or a collection of sketches of ideas (five pages maximum)
  • All material to be submitted in a single PDF document by e-mail to monetary-orders@his-online.de
