ESEH NEXTGATe 2021-2023 call

Call for applications – NEXTGATe 2021-2023

The Board of the European Society for Environmental History is seeking applications from doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers to join the 2021-2023 cohort of the Next Generation Action Team (NEXTGATe).

NEXTGATe aims to strengthen the presence and influence of early career scholars in the environmental history field in Europe and beyond, and to offer a space for frank, open discussions and collaboration among this group of environmental historians.

The work of the newly appointed cohort will build upon previous discussions on professional and financial uncertainty, the lack of visibility of the field in specific geographical contexts, and an inadequate professional network.

For the most recent report of the NEXTGATe team, see Biasillo R., Hameeteman E., Kochetkova E., Ujházy N., Palma M., Schleper S., Wickberg A., Early-Career Environmental Historians for a Sustainable Academia, Environment and History 2018. Vol. 24. No. 4. p. 579-581; and the first collective report, Pál V., Biasillo R., Kochetkova E., Meredith T., Schleper S., Spinney E., Emerging Scholars in the Age of Uncertainty: Goals and Plans of ESEH Next Generation Action Team in 2018–19, Environment and History 2018. Vol. 24. No. 4. p. 579-581.

Successful applicants will collaborate with NEXTGATe Coordinator Noémi Ujházy and team members Monique Palma and Elizabeth Hameeteman in continuing outreach activities that target early career scholars (e.g. writing group, dissertation database, blog on Sustainable Academia), and in developing new ones in the lead-up to the 2022 ESEH Conference that will be held in Bristol next summer.

 We encourage the application of early career scholars from diverse backgrounds in order for NEXTGATe to reflect the geographically dispersed and multifaceted nature of the environmental history field at large.

Depending on the strength of applications, up to two new NEXTGATe members will be selected by the selection committee. Successful candidates who fill their tenure with NEXTGATe receive a travel grant to participate in the 2022 ESEH Conference in Bristol.

How To Apply

To apply, please send the following documents to Noémi Ujházy (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. & This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.):

Curriculum Vitae;

A short text describing the goals that you think NEXTGATe should tackle in 2021-2023 and how you could contribute to these activities (max. 500 words).

"What happens when you call on book history to examine the history of gardens?

Hypothesising Human-Animal Relations in Medieval Portugal

O mais recente concurso para o financiamento público a projetos de investigação científica, promovido pela Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior), resultou na recomendação para financiamento, na categoria “projecto exploratório”, do projecto intitulado “Formulando a relação entre humanos e outras espécies no Portugal medievo” (Hypothesising Human-Animal Relations in Medieval Portugal) (EXPL/HAR-HIS/1135/2021).

Com início em 2022 e a duração de ano e meio, o projecto, liderado por Tiago Viúla de Faria, investigador do Instituto de Estudos Medievais da NOVA-FCSH, com a colaboração do historiador da arte Rémy Cordonnier (IEM / Bibliothèque de Saint-Omer / Institut de Recherches Historiques du Septentrion), visa congregar as metodologias e abordagens epistemológicas da história, arqueologia, estudos literários, artes visuais e comunicação de ciência por forma a enquadrar a reflexão sobre a relação entre indivíduo e comunidades medievais com o mundo animal.

O projecto, de acrónimo FALCO, terá efectivamente como caso de estudo a interacção do homem medievo com a ave de rapina. Para tal, foram assumidas parcerias com o município de Salvaterra de Magos, na sua valência Falcoaria Real, e com o Laboratorio de Arqueociências da Direção Geral do Património Cultural.

The latest competitive call for R&D funding from the Portuguese government’s Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) has resulted in the project ‘Hypothesising Human-Animal Relations in Medieval Portugal’ (EXPL/HAR-HIS/1135/2021) being recommended for funding — one of only six winning applications in the FCT’s ‘exploratory project’ category. Spanning eighteen months starting early next year, the project will be led by Dr Tiago Viúla de Faria, who is based at the Instituto de Estudos Medievais (NOVA University of Lisbon), with the collaboration of art historian Dr Rémy Cordonnier (IEM / Bibliothèque de Saint-Omer / Institut de Recherches Historiques du Septentrion) atop a research team of twelve.

The project’s main goal will be to bring together the methodologies and epistemological approaches of history, archaeology, literary studies, the visual arts, and science communication in order to frame reflection on the relationship between medieval individuals and communities and the animal world. The project, acronym FALCO, will have as a case study the interaction found between medieval man and bird of prey. To this end, a research partnership has been established between NOVA, the municipality of Salvaterra de Magos (Falcoaria Real), and with the national directorate for cultural heritage (Laboratorio de Arqueociências).
