Offer Description

This postdoctoral fellowship is part of the ERC Consolidator Grant 'A Disarmed Continent? Gun Culture,
Gun Control and the Making of Western Europe (c. 1870-1970)'. The project is a comparative study
integrating legal, cultural, social and practical analyses of the lawful use and possession of small firearms.
Within the general framework of the project, the postdoctoral scholar will study the case of Sweden.
Over the course of a century (c. 1870-1970), Europe experienced a silent revolution that led to the
implementation of gun control measures and the depoliticisation and cultural deglamourisation of guns.
This transition has become one of the foundations of public order, social peace and the smooth
functioning of political systems. The overall aim of the project is to explore the causes and historical
processes that have led to this change and its implications for European history.
In the light of the existing literature and within the chronological framework of this fellowship (1870-1945),
the postdoctoral scholar will select case studies on which to focus the research, identifying the most
appropriate sources and methodologies. The postdoctoral scholar will carry out a research project based
on an integrated approach to the legal, cultural, social and practical aspects of the lawful use and
possession of small firearms by law-abiding civilians. The methodologies envisaged by the project, and
which the postdoctoral scholar will be invited to select and implement, include: a) security studies; b)
entangled legal history; c) guns as material objects; d) advertising; e) gender studies.

The researcher must be highly motivated and collaborate with the entire research group.

The researcher must be willing to be based and work, except for periods of research abroad, at the Department.
