One-Year Postdoc Position: An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015: Argentina, School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark. Deadline: 26 July 2020.
The School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history of ideas. The position is full-time, and is available from 1 February 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be part of the project ‘An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015’.
The project will investigate the historical relationship between location and the intellectual history of inequality. The research objects of this study are concepts, theories and ‘languages’ relating to international economic inequality from 1960 to 2015. The approach is historical-contextualist and combines conceptual and intellectual history, focusing upon contributions to academic and public debates by public intellectuals, especially economists, sociologists, historians and philosophers. Furthermore, the approach is comparative: it will compare the thought of Northern (primarily American), Indian, African (primarily Ghanaian) and South American (primarily Argentinian) public intellectuals. The project is thus divided into four subprojects (with this position focusing on Argentina), each investigating a significant geographical area in the global discourse on economic inequality, enabling us to make new comparisons and trace connections in South-South as well as in North-South exchanges. The project will be an important contribution to the global turn in intellectual and conceptual history. The successful applicant will be responsible for the sub-project on Argentina. The postdoc will study key Argentinian intellectuals and the intellectual history of international and global economic inequality in Argentina.
