Eight new post-doctoral fellows will be appointed. Recruitment is now
open for the first six of these posts with a closing date of 30 April

Three post-doctoral fellows, each for 4.5 years, will be working on a
new project on Genius before Romanticism, led by Alexander Marr from
the Department of History of Art and funded by the European Research

Three further 4.5 year fellowships will be offered to work on the
theological, natural philosophical and economic strands of a second
project funded by the European Research Council, on ‘Crossroads of
Knowledge in Early Modern England: the place of literature’. This is
led by Subha Mukherji from the Faculty of English, joint host of this
project (with CRASSH).

The seventh postdoctoral fellow will be appointed for 3.5 years on the
legal strand of the Epistemic Intersections project.

The eighth postdoctoral fellow, a three-year position, will be working
on digital ways of exploring the textual and visual archive of the era
as part of the work of a new digital initiative at CRASSH.

The projects are interdisciplinary and collaborative, and will coincide
with CRASSH’s interdisciplinary programme in collaboration with McGill
University, on Conversion in the Early Modern period (funded by the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada), which will
have annual visiting fellows and a seminar series. They will be further
complemented by CRASSH’s highly successful research groups with an
early-modern focus, such as the ‘Things’ seminars in material culture
and the ‘Seeing Things’ programme, a collaboration between CRASSH and
the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute.
