TWO RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSTS: TWO, THREE-YEAR POSTS (post-docs) in INDIGENOUS STUDIES, ONE AT UNIVERSITY OF KENT, AND ONE AT UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA
The TWO Research Associates will contribute to the AHRC funded research project, Beyond the Spectacle: Native North American Presence in Britain, starting September 1st, 2017 and ending August 31st, 2020. Working as part of a team of four, one will be based at Kent, under the supervision of Dr. David Stirrup (PI) and the other will be based at UEA, under the supervision of Prof. Jacqueline Fear-Segal (Co-I),.
Applicants wishing to be considered for both posts should submit applications to both institutions.
Applicants for both posts will hold a PhD in Indigenous Studies (or equivalent), have familiarity with archival research, as well as experience of conference presentations.
This project will explore, assess, and realign British understanding of Native North American Indigenous peoples in the twenty-first century, by examining complex processes of exchange and interchange through a cultural and historical lens. Successful applicants will locate primary sources, carry out research in libraries and archives, and also develop their own research project for conference presentations and publication.
