The Department of Communication and Arts (DCA), Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as PhD / postdoc studying female same-sex relations 1880-2020 from February 1, 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position as PhD is limited to a period of 3 years of full-time employment and the position as postdoc is limited to a period of 2 years of full-time employment with DCA as the daily workplace.

 

The project

 

The PhD / postdoc is part of the research project New histories of female same-sex relations 1880 to 2020 funded by the Danish Research Council (DFF). The project is located at Roskilde University, and the successful applicant will work in close collaboration with the project leader Professor Rikke Andreassen, a senior researcher and a PhD student.

 

New Histories of Same-Sex Relationships 18802020 aims to nuancing the history of sexual minorities, as much LGBTQ+ history builds on research that predominantly has focused on male same-sex relations. Consequently, knowledge of same-sex relations, practices and identities in Denmark remains limited and highly gender-biased. The project will focus on the often unknown stories of women, including women who lived as what we today would call non-binary or trans. In addition to addressing the historical lacuna of women* in LGBTQ+ history, the project will also contribute theoretically to the field of gender and sexuality studies by developing new theoretical frameworks on the intersections of gender, sexuality and stigma and contribute methodologically to the field of queer archiving. You can hear more about the project here: https://dff.dk/forskningsprojekter/dff-podcasts/lesbiske-var-bredt-accepteret-for-100-ar-siden

 

In alignment with the goals of the overall project, we invite original proposals for a PhD / postdoc project focusing on female same-sex relations 1880-2020. The PhD / postdoc will, in collaboration with the other team members of the project, study archives, develop theory and work with different methodological approaches to archival materials and archives. The proposed research project can cover a shorter or longer time period; it can investigate particular sources (such as newspapers, medical journals, educational material, popular media, incl. social media, etc.); be methodologically founded (such as oral history, visual history); or theoretically driven. Project descriptions displaying originality and new approaches to history research are particularly welcome. The project description should specify how the project relates to the overall project. The project description should also specify how the proposed project can be accomplished theoretically, methodologically and empirically.
