The interdisciplinary post-graduate program “Topology of Technology” at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany, announces 10 doctoral fellowships, starting Nov. 1, 2009, and running for 2 years (with an possible option of a third year).
The program is organized by teachers from the subjects of history, sociology, philosophy, literature and language, mechanical engineering, informatics, and civil/construction engineering. It focuses on the relationship between technology and space—at present, in history, and in a possible future.
It has five thematic foci:
