PhD vacancies: 'Back to the Future'

Date: 26 March 2020

Introduction: Two full-time PhD vacancies open!

The Faculty of Arts of the University of Antwerp is seeking to fill two full-time (100%) vacancies in the Department of History for two Doctoral students in an ERC-funded project on historical future expectations in the Late Medieval and Early Modern Period.

To gain more insight in how people in the past thought about the future and how this affected their actions, this project draws on a combination of close and distant reading methods of more than 15,000 letters written in (varieties of) Italian, German, French, Dutch and English by and to European merchants in the period 1400-1830.
