Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 July 2021 at 12:00PM
This post will be fixed-term until 30 September 2022, and it is anticipated

Applications are invited for a full time Research Associate to work with
Professor Kewes and her Co-Investigators on the project ‘Recovering Europe’s
Parliamentary Culture, 1500-1700: A New Approach to Representative
Institutions’.





The post holder will be a member of an interdisciplinary, international
research team undertaking a pilot study of the English Parliament, the Polish
Sejm, and the Dutch States General with specific responsibility for research
in the area of the project centring on the Dutch States General, and will
liaise in Holland with Dr Oddens.





_Recovering Europe ’s Parliamentary Culture, 1500-1700_ examines political
assemblies, such as Parliaments, States, Estates, Diets, and _Cortes_. These
bodies varied tremendously in their organization, customs, and functions. Yet
they shared a transnational inheritance of ideas and methods that added up to
a common European tradition. Intensive study has gone into individual pre-
democratic representative institutions, and their political and constitutional
histories have been exhaustively documented. But very little has been done to
investigate them collectively, to scrutinize them as cultural phenomena in
their own right, or to study them in comparative perspective. This project
takes a new approach. It explores the culture of Europe’s Parliaments, States,
Estates, Diets, and _Cortes_ , asking how was it expressed in images,
language, writing, and symbolic practices. It draws on literature, history,
political philosophy, classical tradition, art and material culture to
investigate the literary, political, and visual discourses and shared
experiences of representative politics across early modern Europe and their
‘translation’ into colonial contexts.





The post holder will be responsible for assisting in the design and
development of the website and database, carrying out research on the Dutch
states-General, organising the project conference, and supporting the
preparation of further funding major bids.





Further particulars (which all applicants must consult) are available below.
