Graduiertenkolleg “Das Dokumentarische. Exzess und Entzug” (GRK 2132)
Das Graduiertenkolleg erforscht die medialen, insbesondere die textuellen, die audiovisuellen und digitalen Formen des Dokumentarischen sowie die kulturellen Bedingungen, unter denen es bestimmten Medien gelingt, zu dokumentarischen Leitmedien zu avancieren. Ein besonderes Augenmerk gilt dem Spannungsverhältnis zwischen einer exzessiven Präsenz des Dokumentarischen in den digitalen Kulturen der Gegenwart und der unvermeidlichen Selektivität, die sich an den blinden Flecken dokumen­tarischer Praktiken ebenso wie an ihren experimentellen Formen und ästhetischen Verfremdungen untersuchen lässt. Dies geschieht in den vier Arbeitsbereichen „Formengeschichte und Theoriebildung des Dokumenta­rischen“, „Medien-Poetiken des Dokumentarischen“, „Selbstdokumentation und Affektkulturen“ sowie „Techno- Politiken des Dokumentarischen“. Das Graduiertenkolleg richtet sich vor allem an Doktorand/innen der Medien-, Film-, Kultur-, Literatur- und Kunstwissenschaft.
1) Postdocstelle
Das Postdocprojekt soll auf dem Gebiet der Grundlagenforschung zu Formengeschichte und Theoriebildung des Dokumentarischen angesiedelt sein.

‘Impact of the Ancient City’ project
https://www.h-net.org/jobs/job_display.php?id=53195
primary: http://www.classics.cam.ac.uk/directory/vacancies
The project will re-examine the impact of the ancient, Greco-Roman city on subsequent urban history in Europe and the Islamic world, investigating both the urban fabric and urban ideals.
1) Research Associate
This Research Associate will examine the resilience of the urban fabric through the selection of case studies in the western Mediterranean, especially North Africa, Spain and southern France, a region in which the post-antique development became highly complex with the progressive divorce between a Christian northern Europe and an Islamic North Africa, with Andalusia as a contested frontier zone.

2) Research Associate
The role of the Islamic World Research Associate is to re-examine perceptions of the ancient, Greco-Roman city in the Islamic world. The successful candidate will assemble and study examples of literary engagement with the physical traces of the Greco-Roman city, but will also consider the ways in which the inhabitants of the ‘Islamic city’ reconfigured this past.

3) Research Associate
This Research Associate will examine the resilience of the urban fabric in the eastern Mediterranean, tracing the impact of ancient forms on subsequent Byzantine and Islamic configurations, with special attention to the different trajectories of particular cities. The successful candidate will select his or her own case studies that will range across the Eastern Mediterranean, excluding Greece and Constantinople/Istanbul, but including Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Palestine and Egypt.

The period under examination will stretch from late antiquity to the Renaissance, and may extend into the modern world.

“Nature and impacts of Middle Pleistocene volcanism in the Ethiopian Rift”
postdoctoral researcher
The project aims to bridge volcanological and archaeological studies in East Africa through studies of selected large calderas in the Ethiopian Rift Valley and their associated pyroclastic deposits. It will involve a combination of reconnaissance-scale fieldwork to characterise and sample key tephra layers, followed up by laboratory petrological, geochemical and geochronological analysis. Key objectives include the development of a regional tephra database and quantification of the timing and nature of key eruptions.

Research Fellow
“Becoming Muslim” is examining Islamisation processes and contexts through archaeological research in Harar, Eastern Ethiopia, and comparing this with other regions in sub-Saharan Africa. Excavation at key sites (shrines, abandoned settlements, urban sites) is generating new data permitting the consideration of urban Islam, the veneration of saints, pilgrimage and shrine based practice, rural Islam, architecture and jihad, changes in lifeways, and early and comparative evidence for Islam and long-distance trade, through analysis of, e.g. architecture, ceramics, epigraphy, burial orientation, imported artifacts, and faunal and archaeobotanical remains. The successful applicant will participate in 3 seasons of fieldwork in eastern Ethiopia under the direction of Professor Insoll where their role will be to complete topographic survey, and to undertake drone and/or kite photography of a range of different sites.
