I am mostly interested in PhD candidates with a general interest around the sociology of language, especially postcolonial linguistics and language philosophy. They are expected to work with empirical data from a praxeological, anthropological or sociological perspective on language in the fields of urbanity, medicine, verbal and popular art, education, politics or philosophy.
