PhD-researcher Identity, Migration, and Global Digital Media (Project 1)
(0,8 fte) 

In this project we are researching the impact of new digital applications on
the construction of identity of young Dutch migrants in a trans-national
setting. We will investigate whether digital media create an alternative
interactive space between the culture of origin and that of immigration, and
how issues of identity, gender and ethnicity are negotiated and articulated
between online and offline worlds. Deadline for application 29 October 2007.

PhD-researcher Learning & Socialization, new media and the migrant condition
(Project 2) (0,9 fte) 

The core interest of this project is to study the increasing impact of new,
digital media, or 'mediatization', on the learning and socialization of both
Dutch and immigrant youth. This raises questions about the nature of the
learning experiences youth engage in, as both the nature of the social
spaces and networks youth are involved in as the role of traditional
socializing agents seem to be changing. Deadline for application 29 October
2007

PhD researcher Social practices of identity by immigrant youth with new
literacies and media (Project 3) (0,9 fte)

lives to shape their identities and how immigrant youth identities are
shared and interpreted across social groups. Deadline for application 29
October 2007
