Application deadline: 30.09.2023

The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1391 “Andere Ästhetik” (“Different Aesthetics”) is a research network funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) which aims to arrive, by means of our interdisciplinary research programme, at a revised evaluation of the contribution made by pre-modern aesthetic acts and artefacts within the field of aesthetic research.

The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1391, research project no. C05 “The Aesthetics of Co-Creativity in Early Modern English Literature” invites applications for a

PhD Student Position / Doctoral Candidate / Research Assistant (m/f/d, 65%, E13 TV-L)

The position is available from 1 January 2024 (or earlier) and limited to 30 June 2027.

Project C05 strives to reconstruct a ‘different' aesthetics of co-creativity in Early Modern English literature and systematically analyses both the communality of literary products (Working Area 1) and the literary productivity of communities (Working Area 2). In addition to drama and poetry, C05 increasingly includes pragmatic texts as well (e.g. sermons, treatises, manuals, contracts). The underlying hypothesis is that concepts of the communality of (literary) text production can be deduced not only from characteristics of and reflections on texts but also praxeologically from communities and their text production. Anyone with a genuine interest in early modern English literature is encouraged to apply!
