Visiting PhD Programme in Consumption Studies

The CCC group is offering outstanding PhD students the opportunity to be a visiting PhD student for 3 to 12months and work in a CCT research group of significant critical mass and diversity. From globalization to ANT, from visual methods to digital worlds, we collect cutting-edge expertise on a broad range of themesby drawing on an interdisciplinary background in anthropology, sociology, art history, and more.

• Get an opportunity to present at one of our research seminars.

• Be encouraged to develop a research paper/conference paper/journal article with your mentor

• Profit from dialogue with our team, including (former) editors or AEs of journals such as JCR, CMC
or EJM.

• Be given an opportunity to give guest lectures on your research topic in our CCT-focused classes

• Get to know a community of interesting and friendly people and strengthen your network during
your stay at one of the hubs of the CCT world.

• Explore possibilities to apply for Postdoc funding

• Stay on the beautiful island of Funen and get to know the true meaning of Danish 'hygge'.
