Textual Microcosms: A New Approach in Translation Studies

Post-Doctoral Fellowships

The European Research Council (ERC) project Textual Microcosms: A New Approach in Translation Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem under the direction of Prof. Ronit Ricci is offering up to 2 Post-Doctoral fellowships beginning in the 2021-2022 academic year (starting date: October 1, 2021). Scholars who have received their Ph.D. after October 1st 2016 or will submit their Ph.D. no later than October 1st 2021 are eligible to apply.

The successful candidates will spend one academic year in Jerusalem (with a possibility of extension to two or more years). They will take part in a group enterprise of studying interlinear translation as practiced between the 16th-20th centuries in the Indonesian-Malay World (encompassing present-day Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, southern Thailand, the southern Philippines, and diasporic communities in South Africa and Sri Lanka). This project employs the interlinear translation as a theoretical and methodological framework to study religious, intellectual, linguistic and artistic elements of a culture as they intersect, connect, and diverge on the page. It is a framework that invites exploring these interconnections from global, regional and local perspectives by “reading between the lines” of such translations, both concretely and metaphorically.
