Scholarship: approximately EUR 1,800 per month
Applications are invited for three full-time fully
funded PhD scholarships in European periodical studies tenable for a period
of up to four years each in the Department of
Literary Studies at Ghent University, Belgium. The successful candidates
will participate in the project “Agents of Change: Women Editors and
Socio-Cultural Transformation in Europe, 1710-1920″.
This project aims to map the transnational networks of
intellectual and textual exchange through which women editors of periodicals
impacted social and cultural life in early-eighteenth- to
early-twentieth-century Europe, including the use of digital humanities
methods. Scholars will prepare a PhD on at least one of the five key thematic
areas of the project (the early periodical, the novel, domestic ideology,
consumer culture, women’s rights movements) and they will also participate in
the project as a team member and contribute to the project database.
All applicants should have:
Master’s degree or equivalent qualification in a relevant
field, such as Literature, Comparative Literature or History. Experience in
women’s history would be considered a plus;
Excellent command of at least two European languages – the
term “European” taken here in the broadest historical sense of the word, not
just the current European Union. Additional reading knowledge of other European
languages would be a plus;
Good oral and written communication skills in English;
Outstanding academic record;
Aptitude for original and creative work, independently as
well as in a team.
The scholarships are offered for a period of two years,

1,800 per month, gradually rising to approximately EUR 2,000 per month in the
