Freie Universität Berlin - Exzellenzausschreibungen – EXC 2020 Temporal Communities/ Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School of Literary Studies
The Cluster of Excellence 2020 "Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective" aims to create a new theoretical and methodological take on literature in a global perspective. Introducing the notion of ‘temporal communities’, the Cluster investigates the ways in which literature reaches out through space and time, establishing complex temporalities and extensive transcultural and transtemporal networks as it interacts with other arts and media. The Cluster’s research is conducted within five Research Areas: 1. Competing Communities, 2. Travelling Matters, 3. Future Perfect, 4. Literary Currencies, 5. Building Digital Communities.
From 1 October 2022, 5 positions for research associates (50% part-time, limited to 3 years, pay group 13 TV-L FU) are available at the Cluster (www.temporal-communities.de ). The 3 positions advertised here are designed for candidates with individual projects that are clearly related to one of the 5 Research Areas of the Cluster.
The research associates will at the same time be members of the Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School for Literary Studies as doctoral students: They will complete its curriculum and have access to the mentoring and qualification offers. In case of thematic fit, an affiliation with the Graduate School of North American Studies is also possible. Doctoral students will have access to travel, conference, and workshop funds.
