LARCA-UMR8225, the research lab in literature, history, and arts in the English-speaking world, at Université de Paris is happy to invite post-doctoral to experienced researchers to apply for a two-day training program in Paris (June 25-26, 2020) to prepare for a Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA-IF) with members of the hosting labs. Please circulate the call for the MSCA meet-up 2020.
Potential applicants can make contact with the supervisors as an initial step.
Please note that scholars of all countries are eligible. However, they should not have held full-time employment in the host country i.e., France, for a period of 12 months prior to the beginning of the fellowship.
LARCA-UMR8225 (https://recherche.univ-paris-diderot.fr/laboratoires/laboratoire-de-recherches-sur-les-cultures-anglophones-larca) has selected two priority fields this year:
- Supervisor: Sandeep BAKSHI – Sandeep.firstname.lastname@example.org
Decolonial Knowledges: In the last decade, a proliferation of decolonizing movements alludes to an enactment of transformative social politics. The disparate geopolitical movements span broader disciplinary borders to include archives of activist mobilization, university pedagogy, reparation and repatriation of colonial artefacts, environmental studies, genders and sexualities, arts and literatures, and everyday praxes. Decolonial interventions constitute a critical pathway in the construction of pluriversal knowledges.
This project encourages applications from all fields in decolonial studies, broadly conceived.
à Keywords: decolonial studies, decolonize, social transformation, decolonial interventions.
- Supervisor: Cécile ROUDEAU – email@example.com
Environmental Humanities: If the demise of the (idea of the) human as a threat to the humanities is not new, climate change and the threats of extinction raise the question of the validity and agency of the humanities with new urgency. The radical undisciplinability of climate requires that the humanities rethink their premises in relation to other disciplines as well as the scale of their (political) agency. The need for new narratives (Haraway) and new modes of reading (Clark) may well point to the humanities as the best tool that remains to envisage an Anthropogenic world.
This project encourages applications from all scholars working in environmental humanities, broadly conceived.
à Keywords: Environmental humanities. Disciplines. Literature. (Global) democracy.
