The University of Bristol seeks to recruit a Research Associate in City, Nation and Culture (Northern Italy), a full-time post for 9 months. The Research Associate will work on cultural representations of a northern Italian city, as part of Dr Ruth Glynn’s AHRC-funded Leadership Fellowship research project on ‘Naples and the Nation: Image, Media and Culture in the Second Republic’. The start date is envisaged as 1 May 2019 and the post will run until 31 January 2020. The Fellowship addresses cultural representations of Naples as a privileged lens for understanding the relationship between city and nation in the Second Republic, and develops a methodology for the study of city-nation relations in other contexts. The work of the Research Associate will provide a comparative perspective by applying the methodology of the project to a northern Italian city. The post will encompass a range of duties, from conference organisation, through collaborative work with A-Level teachers of Italian and participation in events, to authoring, co-authoring and editing of research and impact outputs.

The post is line-managed by Dr Ruth Glynn (Reader in Modern Italian Culture, School of Modern Languages, Faculty of Arts) who is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in contemporary Italian culture, interest or experience in urban humanities and an ability to work collaboratively with academics, teachers and public engagement partners.
