Again as Before: Reenactment- Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities at Haverford College, 2020-2022
The John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities at Haverford College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities to begin Fall 2020. We seek a thinker and/or practitioner interested in reenactment as scholarly topic, artistic medium, or research modality.
During the first year of the program, the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will participate in a year-long faculty seminar, led by John Muse and Vicky Funari (Visual Studies), that will bring together faculty with a variety of disciplinary perspectives. In order to better understand the cultural ubiquity and allure of reenactment, the seminar will examine the relation of precedent events to their reenactment, the difference between live reenactments and technically mediated ones, and the presuppositions about subjectivity, sameness, time, memory, truth, and experience that undergird the concept of reenactment. Applicants should make clear the nature of their potential contributions to this interdisciplinary and intersectional inquiry that will explore the history, theory, and practice of reenactment. In the second year, the Fellow will organize and present a spring symposium related to their scholarly field funded by the Hurford Center.
In each of the four semesters at Haverford College, the Fellow will teach one course at the introductory/intermediate or advanced level and engage a diverse student body. Applicants should submit two brief course proposals related to their area of interest: one for a broad-based introductory or intermediate course and the other for a more specialized or advanced course.
