Two Phd Research Fellowships have been advertised as part of the Lifetimes: A Natural History of the Present project lead by Helge Jordheim. Applications due 23rd of November.
From the job advertisement:
The first PhD position will focus on how lifetimes are being constructed and deployed at the interface between science communication, popular science, and popular culture and are linked to political agendas, strategies and tactics. The successful applicant should have background in Cultural History, STS (Science and Technology Studies), History of Science, Media History or related methods of enquiry, and should be able to work also with Norwegian sources. The leading question for this project will be how the vocabularies of climate change enter into political discourse by way of various popular genres and modes. Prior fieldwork or research experience in the field will be a plus.
The second PhD project will focus specifically on science fiction dealing with climate change, such as climate fiction (“cli-fi”), ecofiction or anthropocene fictions, and how climate change discourses give shape to visions of the future. The successful applicant should have a background in Literature, Visual Culture Studies, Environmental Humanities or similar fields. The project should explore how variations in different climate change affected futures – postapocalyptic landscapes, ruins etc. – depend on geography, ethnicity or cultural identity and might contain a comparative element.
