|Titel||PhD. RESEARCHER, KU Leuven|
|Beschreibung||This full-time PhD position (max. 4 years), created to study the modernist writer's speech in Germany as a genre, is launched by M.D.R.N. M.D.R.N. is a large-scale K.U.Leuven-based research project (GOA) that focuses on the multifaceted nature of literature during the first half of the twentieth century. M.D.R.N. looks at the many ways in which literature between 1900-1950 defined and legitimized itself in the main Western European traditions (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch) and canvasses literature's multiple functions, histories and mediatizations. The project has a double aim: to further our understanding of writing in the modernist period, and, more generally, to develop a multidimensional and functionalist approach to the dynamic identity of modern Western European literature. For more information, visit: www.mdrn.be.
You get to write a doctoral dissertation devoted to the study of the writer's speech in German literature and its evolution as a genre in connection with the emergence of new media in the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century (phonograph, gramophone, radio, film and television).
You are given an opportunity to work within a vibrant and international research environment. You will work within the collective research programme (IUAP) "Literature and media innovation: the question of genre transformations". This programme is coordinated by the K.U.Leuven M.D.R.N. group in collaboration with researchers from the Université de Liège, Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL - Louvain-la-Neuve), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal) and Ohio State University. Focussing on the relationship between literature, genre and media, the research programme aims to answer the following general questions:
• How do technological changes affect the media system, and vice versa?
• What new literary genres emerge with the introduction of new technologies?
• How is the whole genre system transformed by changes in the media system?
• How can media changes enhance the productive and performative aspects of a given (set of) genre(s)?
• What are the patterns that govern the interaction between genres and media changes, if one accepts neither teleological and techno-determinist interpretations claiming that the "new" supersedes the "old", nor the claim that newness and novelty are basically media- and technology driven?
• What is the specific contribution of literature in these transformations and how do genre innovations help to understand the success or survival of certain media innovations?
You may be assigned limited educational or administrative responsibilities related to the collective research programme and/or within the broader framework of the Department of Literary studies.
You are highly motivated and have a keen interest in research on modern, and preferably modernist, literature in German. You hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in Literary Studies or in Languages and Literatures with a strong focus on modern German literature. (If you are a student in your final Master's year about to obtain your degree, you may also apply.) An excellent knowlegde of German and English is essential. A command of Dutch, as well as additional studies in the field of communication studies, are a plus. You are particularly keen on working in a team, as you are expected to collaborate with other parties in the IUAP and with the M.D.R.N. researchers.
