PhD position summary/title: PhD position: Developing a systems approach to promote a healthy lifestyle in youth
This project aims to develop a framework for designing effective interventions that will promote healthy lifestyle in youth using systems thinking, complex systems approaches, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This approach involves collaboration with various stakeholders, such as parents, schools—and crucially, youth themselves. The framework will enable us to understand the complex interactions between factors from different domains of a system. By doing so, we will be able to gain insights into the unique individual and environmental characteristics that influence a healthy lifestyle. Using these insights, we will co-create interventions to promote a healthy lifestyle.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position (1.0 FTE) in Cultural Heritage
The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is pleased to announce a challenging PhD position that delves into community engagements with colonial heritage sites. Although tourism in relation to contested heritage and colonial heritage has been studied from a wide range of perspectives, less attention has been given to the engagement of indigenous communities to sites explicitly concerned with colonial histories. Additionally, the consequences of involuntary loss from these sites (e.g., due to colonial looting), and the influence of changing narratives surrounding these sites, are often omitted. Taking a multi-actor comparative approach, and by actively involving indigenous communities in the research process, this PhD position will produce novel theoretical and empirical contributions to the study of colonial heritage and tourism. Candidates interested in this PhD position are to propose specific case-studies and/or regions relating to the research questions: How do indigenous communities negotiate, understand, and engage with colonial heritage sites? How have broader discussions of indigenous rights and representation in modern society been impacted by the preservation and interpretation of the material and immaterial properties of colonial sites? And how do colonial heritage sites shape the ongoing interactions between indigenous and non-indigenous communities?

In doing so, there will be a particular focus on race, ethnicity, gender, and nation (and their intersections). Analyzing social media content along with complementary interviews will contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of how social media shape individuals’ self-conception and identity.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position (1.0 FTE) in Media and Popular Culture
The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is pleased to announce a challenging PhD position that delves into the intricate dynamics and implications of (un)cancel culture within the realm of global popular culture, both in digital and non-digital spaces. Popular culture and its social context are deeply intertwined, with each influencing and reflecting the other. From movements like #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite to the January 6th Insurrection at the Capitol, popular culture has become a platform for addressing important societal issues such as inequality, representation, and polarization. At the forefront of this intersection lies cancel culture, encompassing both cancel practices and cancel discourses. By examining its origins, dynamics, and consequences, the project seeks to comprehend its impact on various stakeholders, ranging from audiences and celebrities to cancel discourses and the broader cultural landscape in the Netherlands and beyond. This innovative exploration offers insights into the multifaceted nature of cancel culture, while also providing an understanding of ‘uncanceling.’ Using qualitative research methods, candidates interested in this PhD position investigate the role of digital (platforms, technologies) and traditional media in shaping and perpetuating cancel culture as a phenomenon. Ultimately, the project aims to inform critical discussions on and strategies to navigate the complexities of cancel culture.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position (1.0 FTE) in Media & Creative Industries
The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is pleased to announce a challenging PhD position that explores the ways in which edutainment can be harnessed as a platform for promoting lifelong learning and driving value creation within the fast-evolving realm of creative industries and emerging technologies. Beyond their cultural, entertainment and direct economic value, the creative industries (CIs) serve as crucial catalysts for economic and social innovation. Indeed, CIs have the potential to develop edutainment content and experiences that can increase awareness and engagement around specific social challenges. Furthermore, emerging creative technologies can amplify the impact of these platforms, while creating new opportunities for generating market value. Therefore, this project will investigate the industrial side of the phenomenon and provides insights into the differences between subsidized and non-subsidized sectors of creative industries.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position (1.0 FTE) in Popular Culture in Historical Perspective
The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for a PhD position that delves into the intersection of race and gender in trans-imperial representations of popular culture in historical newspapers.

The PhD candidate will produce comparative data-driven analyses of written representations of cultural manifestations (e.g., music, theatre, games, dance, sports, letters, anecdotes, clothing, appearance, mores and values, etc.). For that, they will rely on methods from critical race theory, gender studies, historical sociolinguistics, digital humanities, and global history. The selected PhD candidate will join an interdisciplinary research team where, using ethical principles, specialists in history and in natural language processing (NLP) collaborate to fine-tune language models to the specialist domain of colonial history.
