Re-blogged from the French Studies Francofil mailing list:
The nineteenth-century French group at the University of Cambridge is keen to attract applicants to come to work as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities in Cambridge for 3 years on the large collection in the University Library of caricatures from the Franco-Prussian War and the Paris Commune (KF.3.9-14). Details of the overall scheme are available here.
Applicants may have doctoral qualifications in Digital Humanities, but applications are also welcomed from postdoctoral researchers in cognate areas (including Modern Languages). Applicants should demonstrate an engagement with DH issues, familiarity with DH methods, and an understanding of the changes in epistemic cultures digital transformation produces. High-level technical skills are not necessarily required but may be part of the application to Cambridge Digital Humanities. The application closing date is 10 November 2019.
Nick White (French Section, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics) and Irène Fabry-Tehranchi (French collections, Cambridge University Library) have been developing a research interest in this material, and are keen to attract applications from candidates who have, or will soon, complete a PhD.
