Call for Applications Literary Knowledge, 1890-1950: Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe.

The MDRN research lab at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) is awarding six doctoral scholarships within the research programme Literary Knowledge, 1890-1950: Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe. Successful applicants receive a four-year scholarship (doctoraatsbursaal).

The Project

Literary Knowledge, 1890-1950: Modernisms and the Sciences in Europe is funded by the University of Leuven Research Council. This research programme seeks to better understand the epistemic function of Western European literature between 1890 and 1950 by studying literature’s role within a larger economy of knowledge production during the period. More specifically, the programme investigates the ways in which literature related to knowledge stemming from the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences and the humanities. A large-scale research initiative coherently framed and involving scientists from various disciplines, the programme houses six smaller-scale comparative projects that will result in PhD theses on English, French, German, Italian and Dutch literature’s ties to fields as varied as archaeology, genetics and cosmology (click the titles for more detailed information):
