PhD and Post Doc Positions @ Ghent University

There are 3 positions (2 PhD fellowships and 1 Post-doc) for the project ‘Narrating the Mesh’.  The application date is 2 May for the PhD positions and 5 June for the Post-doc position.

“Narrating the Mesh” (NARMESH in short) is a multidisciplinary research project interrogating contemporary narrative and its potential for staging, challenging, and expanding the human imagination of the nonhuman. How can narrative, in both literary fiction and oral storytelling, capture the ways in which humans are dependent upon the climate or the geological history of our planet? How can we narrativize entities that elude the human scale? How can stories undercut anthropocentric ideologies and foster a sense of respectful coexistence with realities beyond the human?
