The EDDA Center has announced the award of three PhD and postdoctoral fellowships as part of its participation in the Nordic Excellence Hub “Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World” (ReNEW). 

Pontus Erik Gunnar Järvstad, a doctoral student in history at the University of Iceland, receives a PhD fellowship for his project “An Anti-fascist Minimum? A Comparative Study on Anti-fascism in the Nordic Countries.” The doctoral thesis is about the long history of Nordic anti-fascism from the interwar period to the present.

Egill Þór Níelsson, a doctoral student in political science and history at the University of Lapland and the University of Iceland, is the recipient of a PhD fellowship for the project “China-Nordic Arctic Relations: Regional and Bilateral Cooperation in an Evolving World Order.“ It is about current China-Nordic relations within an Arctic context, using a mixture of international relations, contemporary history and regional studies approaches.

Hildur Fjóla Antonsdóttir, who is completing her doctoral degree in the sociology of law at the University of Lund, has been granted a post-doctoral fellowship for her project “Norms at Play: Tracing Legal Consciousness and Judicial Common Sense in Cases of Sexual Violence and Harassment in the Nordic Countries.” It addresses the contemporary challenge of achieving justice in cases of sexual violence and is conceptually located within critical socio-legal studies with an intersectional approach to gender equality.
