2 PhD Fellowships in Medieval Literature, University of Southern Denmark, Centre for Medieval Literature – starting February 1, 2018
Deadline: 1 November 2017
2 PhD fellowships are available at the Centre for Medieval Literature (CML), starting February 1, 2018. The fellowships run for 3 years and the successful candidates must hold an MA within medieval textual culture (literature, philology, history, religion or other with emphasis on texts and/or languages).
CML is a Danish centre of excellence founded in 2012, based jointly at SDU and at the University of York. The centre‘s field of research is European medieval literatures in a broad sense. Its ambition is to propose new theoretical frameworks for the field which is still predominantly divided into national interests and paradigms.
The proposed research project for the PhD must fall within one of the Centre’s main themes, Canon and Library, Imperial Languages or Transformations and Translocations (se further at sdu.dk/cml). The centre encourages projects which include a comparative element, either chronologically, geographically or between disciplines and languages.
At present the centre and its associates can provide competence of supervision in Ancient and Medieval History, History of Religion, Spanish, Greek, Latin, Art History, Comparative Literature; co-supervision can also be provided by York within French, Old and Middle English, Italian and Old Norse.
Further information is available from the Head of the Centre for Medieval Literature Lars Boje Mortensen, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
