GRACE (Gender and Cultures of Equality) is an EU funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network, that aims to systematically investigate the cultural production of gender equalities within Europe.
The GRACE project will recruit, employ and provide advanced training for fifteen Early Stage Researchers. These GRACE Early Stage Researcher’s (ESRs) will conduct doctoral research into the production of cultures of gender equality across five specific sites where cultures of gender equalities are produced and contested by differently situated social agents. These five sites form the core of our five research and training Work Packages, and are focused as follows:
- mediated cultures of gender equality;
- urban cultures of gender equality;
- intellectual and activist cultures of gender equality;
- textual and artistic cultures of gender equality;
- employing cultures of gender equality.
GRACE is designed to equip this new generation of ESRs to play a leading role in developing advanced techniques for investigating the production of cultures of gender equality; translate creative and critical capacities into innovative cultural practices within and beyond academia; and enable them to take up positions as experts in producing new gender equalities cultures.
Within the project, at Utrecht University, two ESR positions will be available for the following projects:
- Curating Cultures of Equality in Post Imperial European contexts (ESR7);
- Critics and the Cultural Politics of Equality (ESR9).
ESR7 & ESR9 will each write a PhD thesis on, respectively, ‘Curating Cultures of Equality in Post Imperial European contexts’ (ESR7) and ‘Critics and the Cultural Politics of Equality’ (ESR9) within Work Package 3 ‘Intellectual and activist cultures of gender equality’.
Deadline to apply for the Utrecht positions: December 4, 2015.
