Bourse de doctorat – “Rest in peace”. The management of death and burial during the Dutch Revolt.

Bourse de doctorat en histoire des Temps Modernes à la KU Leuven: Révolte des Pays-Bas.

Titre : “Rest in peace”. The management of death and burial during the Dutch Revolt.

Date limite de l’appel: 14 septembre 2018

Présentation du projet: 

Burials were highly explosive matters in the sixteenth-century strife between Catholics and Protestants. When Catholics continued to insist on the sacrament of the Last Anointing, a funeral mass led by the priest and a burial in sacred ground, Protestants rejected this ‘ritual industry’, and came to defend a sober ars moriendi and a plain burial in designated though not sacred cemeteries. For the Holy Roman Empire, the British Isles and France, it has been extensively documented how burials thus induced confessional disputes and even religious violence, but strikingly sources in the early modern Low Countries do not register similar outbursts in or around cemeteries. Hence, this research project examines this absence of outspoken religious violence, by testing the hypothesis that it was eventually prevented through a remarkable management of death at different levels. This management consisted of the multi-level prescriptions of local, central and ecclesiastical authorities on the crucial rite de passage, as well as the engagement of local citizens with the manner in which burials could and should take place. Moreover, it argues that this top-down and bottom-up management of death led to the unforeseen outcome that at least from 1576 onwards, regulation systematically included provisional pacification measures for the ‘other’ confession, a procedure eventually surviving in the Dutch Republic. The project thus aims to explain why the Low Countries were an exception to the rule, and why and how bereaved during the Dutch Revolt could rest in peace.

We are looking for an additional doctoral student in this project, examining the impact of public and secret executions, both on royal and rebel side. Dra. Louise Deschryver examines the emotional and sensorial repertoires of death during the Dutch Revolt within the  framework of this project.

Candidature – Post-doctorat “Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770”

Post-doctorat à l’Universiteit Leiden dans le cadre du projet VIDI-NWO “Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770”, sous-projet “The rhetoric of Atlantic news”.

Lieu: Leiden, Universiteit Leiden, Institute for History

Date: à partir du 1 mars 2018 (période de 20 mois)

Date limite de candidature: 15 décembre 2017

Appel sur le site de l’Universiteit Leiden

Project description

The project ‘Covering the Ocean’ investigates how early print media covered distant but urgent geopolitical conflicts in the Atlantic world, using newspapers from across early modern Europe. Atlantic news represented a unique challenge, as the tension between the infrequent arrival of information and a regular deadline consistently jeopardized the newspapers’ credibility For more information, see http://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/research/research-projects/humanities/covering-the-ocean.

The Leiden University Institute for History will be appointing a postdoctoral researcher for a period of 20 months, within the NWO VIDI-project ‘Covering the Ocean: Newspapers and Information Management in the Atlantic World, 1620-1770’ led by Prof. Michiel van Groesen.

The candidate will be responsible for the development of the subproject ‘The rhetoric of Atlantic news’, examining and analyzing the rhetorical strategies used in the newspapers’ argumentative discourse. Cooperating closely with the team’s two PhD-students, the postdoc examines the persuasive tone and interdiscursivity in the media by taking into account both the conventions of early modern newspaper journalism and the regular topic shifts to emphasize good news and reduce or ignore undesirable events. Ultimately this subproject answers the question how early modern newspapers employed style and rhetoric to attain and retain credibility.

Key responsibilities

  • Submitting research results for publication to international peer-reviewed academic journals;
  • Attending and actively participating in all the team meetings;
  • Presenting papers at conferences and workshops;
  • Co-organizing conferences and workshops;

Selection criteria

  • PhD in Argumentation Theory or Literary Studies, or a relevant discipline closely connected with the theme of this subproject;
  • Written and oral fluency in English; good working knowledge of Dutch and French
  • Demonstrable interest for research premises of the project;
  • Willingness to work within a team and an international academic community that aspires to scholarly excellence;
  • Ability to work both independently and as a member of a team.

Candidature – Doctorant “Kairós, or the Right Moment. Nachleben and Iconology”

Appel à candidature pour une bourse de doctorat en histoire de l’art à la KU Leuven dans le cadre du projet “Kairós, or the Right Moment. Nachleben and Iconology”

Date limite: 25 novembre 2017

Description de l’offre:

The Department of Art History of the KU Leuven (Belgium) invites applications for a full time 4-year PhD scholarship. The successful candidate will participate in the project ‘Kairós, or the Right Moment. Nachleben and Iconology’, funded by the Internal Funds of KU Leuven and supervised by prof. dr. Barbara Baert (KU Leuven) and dr. Han Lamers (KU Leuven / University of Oslo). See: https://www.arts.kuleuven.be/art_history/art_history

Project

The Greek term kairós expresses a complex notion of ‘grasping the right moment’, which travelled through art, literature, and philosophy. Combining perspectives from classical reception studies and iconology, this research initiative deals with the reception of kairós in the visual medium from antiquity to the Renaissance. How was kairós visualized in ancient, medieval, and Renaissance art? And how did text and image work together to transform the idea of ‘grasping the right moment’ in various contexts? Topics of interest dealt with by current members of the research team include the biblical, theological, and liturgical interpretations of kairós and their relevance to the visual arts; the role of kairós in early medieval art and in Annunciation scenes; kairós as pseudomorphosis, etc. The research team will gather and analyze the largely disconnected ‘textual’ and ‘visual’ research traditions in order to explore, more systematically than has been attempted before, the Nachleben of this motif in the visual realm. To achieve this, it will build an exhaustive database, or ‘Bilderatlas’, of visual representations of kairós.

The successful candidate will write a PhD thesis on an original topic of specialization which relates to project’s general research questions as explained above. S/he will be expected to finish her/his PhD within the time span of four years, to regularly present intermediate results at workshops and conferences, and to publish on the topic of specialization in international scholarly journals. As a member of the kairós research group, the successful candidate will also participate to all project meetings and contribute the project’s visual research database (‘Bilderatlas’).

  2. curriculum vitae, with contact details of two referents;
  3. research proposal of max. 1500 words, explaining your research topic, method, and work plan, with specific emphasis on the ways in which visualisations of kairós were transformed from the Middle Ages onwards (special interest/expertise in the Renaissance and/or early modern context is particularly welcomed);
  4. academic transcript and certified overview of your study results (per year).

Please submit your complete application to Han Lamers via han.lamers@kuleuven.be before 25 November 2017.
