ARC CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR THE HISTORY OF THE EMOTIONS (EUROPE 1100-1800)
RESEARCH FELLOWS
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions in collaboration with the University of Western Australia, the University of Adelaide, the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney and the University of Queensland, seeks to appoint nine exceptional postdoctoral research fellows to contribute to research projects in the history of emotions in Europe for the period 1100-1800.
The Centre addresses big questions: to what extent are emotions universal? How, and to what extent, are they culturally conditioned and subject to historical change? What are the causes and consequences of major episodes of mass emotional experiences? How are emotions created and conveyed through the performing arts? How does Australia’s emotional heritage influence today’s social and cultural patterns?
The Centre draws on advanced research expertise at five nodes in Australia (the Universities of Western Australia, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland), plus research partnerships in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. Our approach is strongly interdisciplinary, with researchers spanning the fields of social and cultural history, literature, art history, museology, Latin studies, history of medicine and science, musicology and performance practice.
These prestigious fellowships (with additional $16K pa research support) offer an exciting opportunity for innovative enthusiastic individuals with demonstrated track records in medieval and/or early modern studies, and a capacity to engage in interdisciplinary research.
Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant discipline in medieval and/or early modern studies.
Benefits include 17% superannuation and generous leave provisions. Some relocation allowance for successful applicants will be considered. These and other benefits will be specified in the offer of employment.
