The Hoopoe Bird

The hoopoe bird is found across Afro-Eurasia and is associated with several cultures. In Muslim cultures, the hoopoe symbolizes exploration, conversation, and wisdom. It thus reflects the mission of our Centre that seeks to provide opportunities for conversations and intellectual exploration.

The "Arctic Muslim": Constructing Modern Muslim Selfhoods in Peripheral Western Environments. 

Dietrich Jung and Martin Ledstrup (University of Southern Denmark) are looking for a PhD student to be part of a research grant for research that would begin in the fall of 2018. The student must relocate to Denmark for her/his PhD, but undertake research in Whitehorse and Yellowknife. Please see the attached for more info.

From Dietrich Jung:

"this person should also be willing to write her PhD in Denmark as we will not be able to fund it in Canada. However, moving to Denmark will be well paid as we have the best paid PhD positions in the world."
