Hi everyone, I am looking for an excellent PhD student for my research project: "Pentecostal Connections: Migration, Missionaries, Mobility and Media between Australia and Brazil"
RELIGION AND SOCIETY: PhD RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP AT UWS
The Religion and Society Research Centre / School of Social Sciences and Psychology is seeking an excellent candidate to undertake a doctoral project as part of an Australian Research Council funded Future Fellowship.
Dr Cristina Rocha’s Future Fellowship investigates the rise of global Pentecostalism by exploring a Pentecostal transnational religious field between Australia and Brazil. In particular, it aims to investigate the role of Pentecostalism in the social welfare of migrants in Australia. Broadly speaking, this research intends to contribute significant new knowledge to the ways in which religion is globalised and localised in everyday life, the role of religion in assisting migrants, and the continuing vitality and renewed public role of religion in late modernity.
The doctoral project will be developed by the student and has been conceived to add an important dimension to the Future Fellowship study. The project will involve an in-depth case study of a Brazilian mega-church in Australia, with fieldwork conducted in Sydney, Melbourne and Brazil.
