Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship to work on a Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) funded research project entitled ‘Making War, Mapping Europe: Militarized Cultural Encounters, 1792-1920’. The post is available for a fixed term of one year from 30 June 2015.
‘Making War, Mapping Europe’ brings together scholars from Freie Universität Berlin, Trinity College Dublin and the Universities of York and Swansea in a collaborative international research project examining militarized cultural encounters in Europe and its borderlands during the long nineteenth century. This transnational research explores the experiences of British, French and German armies in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Balkans and the Middle East from the Revolutionary wars to the First World War and asks how military cultural encounters helped to shape collective perceptions of ‘the self’ and ‘the other’, of Europe and its borders, in the period between 1792 and 1920.
