Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Critical Cultural Heritage
We are particularly interested in archaeologists who approach cultural heritage as an interdisciplinary field devoted to the many dimensions of cultural heritage, in particular as material, intangible, emotional, and intellectual. We wish to encourage engagements with cultural and material heritage that challenge dominant nationalist and other ideological frameworks and incorporate the active participation of local communities and marginalized peoples in heritage discourses and representations. We can also envision teaching, advising and research that from a critical perspective on cultural heritage explore topics such as: authenticity, identity, ideology, ownership, commodification, culture and conflict, trauma and memorialization, indigenous rights, and hybridity and cosmopolitanism.
