Lecturer in Modern Extra-European History
This 4 ½ year lectureship post arises out of the award of an ERC Starting Grant to Professor Clare Anderson, for the project: “The Carceral Archipelago: penal transformations in global perspective, 1415-1960.” You will work with colleagues of modern extra-European history across the School to develop further our research portfolio, our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching provision, and enhance the reputation of and network the School through engagement across the University and in appropriate external roles.
You will work in any area of extra-European history, but not including North America, from the eighteenth century onwards. You may take any historiographical approach to your research, including quantitative methods. This role will involve working particularly closely with our existing research cluster in “Colonial, Postcolonial and Global History,” comprising Dr Bernard Attard (international economy), Dr Prashant Kidambi (India); Dr Toby Lincoln (China); Dr Eliza Riedi (South Africa); and Dr Deborah Toner (Latin America); and their postgraduate students. This is an excellent opportunity for you to take a central role in the development of a key area of research and teaching in the School of Historical Studies, at the University of Leicester.
