Post-Doc Opportunity: Swansea

Post-Doctoral Research Assistant
Swansea University
AHRC-funded project

'Mapping Medieval Chester: Place and Identity in an English Borderland
City c.1200-1500'

School of Arts (Dept of English)
Post Reference: 4815
Salary scale: £25135 per annum
Closing Date: 05 Jun 2008

Swansea University seeks to appoint a Research Assistant to work on the
AHRC-funded research project 'Mapping Medieval Chester: place and identity
in an English borderland city c. 1200-1500'. The project will investigate
how a sense of place-identity and belonging were produced through local
engagements with the landscapes of an English medieval city and its
environs between c.1200 and 1500. The project is a collaborative
enterprise between teams in the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern
Research / English Department, Swansea University (lead institution), the
Department of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology, Queen's University
Belfast and the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College,
London, and will draw on interdisciplinary approaches to connect and
analyse cartographic and textual 'mappings' of medieval Chester. The
project will produce a set of online resources interlinking an interactive
digital map of Chester's urban landscape c.1500 with new editions and
translations of key texts (or textual extracts) and interpretative
apparatus. Other outputs include research papers and two dissemination
events: a public workshop in Chester and an academic colloquium at
Swansea. The researcher will be based at Swansea (though there are
possibilities for remote or e-working), working closely with the Project
Director, Dr Catherine A M Clarke.

The Research Assistant is required to produce an edition and translation
of passages from the twelfth-century Latin text De Laude Cestrie (In
Praise of Chester) for the project website. The Research Associate will
also contribute to wider project research, analysis and development, and
will have particular responsibility for organising the final academic

We seek to attract a researcher with excellent skills in Latin translation
and textual criticism, who holds a PhD (or is close to completion) in a
relevant area (e.g. Medieval Latin, Classical Latin, Medieval Studies).
The researcher should be able to work as part of a collaborative research
team and engage with interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

The position is fixed term for a period of 12 months, from 01 September,

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to the Project
Director, Dr Catherine A. M. Clarke at C.A.Clarke@Swansea.ac.uk
(01792 295926).

We are an equal opportunity employer aiming for diversity in our
