Expression of Interest
Marie Curie Action Fellowships – CIDEHUS (Portugal)

The Call for Marie Curie Action Fellowships was launched a few weeks ago ( It is a great, international, and competitive contest, which gives an unique opportunity for researchers to move in a new country and develop their own project in cooperation with a local host centre.

The Centro Interdisciplinar de História, Culturas, Sociedades of the University of Evora (CIDEHUS.UE) – - in Portugal will be very glad to receive applicants from aboard for this European Call. Acting in a multidisciplinary research centre, the members of the CIDEHUS.UE focus their work on past and current human activities in the “South”, in a large geographical acceptation (Southern Europe, Mediterranean, Latin America and Africa) as well as in a large thematic sense (peripheral societies, marginalization, North-South relations, South-South relations, southern studies). The disciplinary domains include History, Culture Heritage, Demography, Linguistic, Philosophy, Sociology and History of Education, Anthropology, Library and Information Sciences, structured in three research groups on Southern history, Culture Heritage and Information and Literacy.

The CIDEHUS.UE team is ready to support and work with applicants from social sciences and humanities to build an innovative and high-ranking project on the problem of the “South” as a fruitful and thought-provoking fieldwork for interdisciplinary dialogue and comparative studies.
