Temporary Lecturer in Cultural History (0.7 FTE)

Updated: about 2 months ago
Deadline: 01 Jun 2022

The Cultural History section within the Department of History and Art History at Utrecht University is one of the most interdisciplinary groups in the History department: we are trained as historians, but also as archaeologists, philologists, journalists and philosophers, even physicists. Together we study the ways in which people produce culture (through institutions, bodies and networks), circulate it (through education, books, newspapers, images and digital media), and reproduce it (through memory practices and heritage politics). Our group is clustered in three groups: Uses of the Past (studying the production of heritage and memory in contemporary and past societies), Knowledge Practices (exploring the cultural dimensions and networks defining knowledge production and expertise) and Transcultural Connections (analyzing and reflecting on the circulation of culture across the globe and societal impact of (post)colonialism). The group plays a central role in three Master programmes and the Bachelor education of the department. We also collaborate with other groups across Utrecht University (e.g. Descartes Centre and Graduate School of Teaching).

The Temporary Lecturers will mainly teach in the Bachelor program for history and will possibly also be involved in the Master Cultural History. They will teach and help coordinate courses in Cultural History, the Theory and Methodology of History, and General History – both in English and Dutch.
