Visiting Fellowship in Strasbourg

The Research Group EA 2325 SEARCH "Savoirs dans l'Espace Anglophone: Représentations, Culture, Histoire," University of Strasbourg (France), offers a Visiting Fellowship in the Humanities for the second year running.

Applications for a period of six months (January to June 2013) are now invited from scholars wishing to pursue research in any of the areas covered by the Group and engage in active participation in the Group's activities.

EA 2325 SEARCH has particular strengths in the following areas:

o Literature, 16th to 18th centuries

o Celtic studies

o Canadian studies

o Nabokov and contemporary American literature

o Contemporary American politics and culture

o India

Two scholarly societies are hosted by the University of Strasbourg and run by members of EA2325: "Société d'Études Canadiennes" and "Société Française Nabokov." Strasbourg has also been selected to coordinate research on 16th-18th centuries in the English-speaking world for the East of France.

EA2325 is made up of about forty professors, lecturers and doctoral students, who contribute to the Group's main research topic. As of September 2012 the theme of interest is "Contacts, frictions, clashes." EA2325 organizes seminars and conferences throughout the year, and is involved in fruitful interdisciplinary dialogue with other Research Groups in the University: modern languages, French literature, history, theology. The Visiting Fellow will be encouraged to take part in these activities and will be invited to present a paper at one of our seminars.

The Group has strong ties with scholars from the Universities of Basel (Switzerland), Freiburg-im-Breisgau (Germany), Haute-Alsace-Mulhouse (France) within the EUCOR-English network. The applicant will have the opportunity to present a paper in the EUCOR seminars and will have free access to the libraries of the four institutions.

The Fellowship is conceived as an opportunity to combine individual and self-directed research and engagement with the research conducted in the Group. Although the Fellowship does not imply full-time residence in Strasbourg, it would be of particular interest to scholars on leave from their home institutions, so as best to benefit from the city's rich cultural life and long-standing University tradition.

A CV and a cover letter stating how the applicant's project would fit in with the Group's activities should be sent to Prof. Jean-Jacques Chardin ( and Prof. Anne Bandry-Scubbi ( by September 15, 2012.
