2 PhD Positions in the History of Knowledge

The Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages at Oslo University is announcing two PhD Research Fellowships: 

1. Contested knowledge: decolonization and European history of knowledge. Applicants must develop a history of knowledge research project that examines historical encounters, conflicts, or translations between European and non-European knowledge systems, and relate the historical material to theoretical questions concerning cultural and epistemic decolonization. https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/215414/doctoral-research-fellowship-in-contested-knowledge-decolonization-and-european-history-of-knowledge

2. Indigenous knowledge in cultural historical archives and/or museums. Applicants must develop a research project that investigates how indigenous knowledge has been classified, represented, or exhibited in cultural historical archives and/or museums. The research could for instance focus upon themes such as how the knowledge systems of indigenous people have been incorporated and represented in cultural historical archives or museum – or how indigenous peoples have used museums and archives as platforms for cultural self-presentation and preservation. https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/215437/doctoral-research-fellowship-in-indigenous-knowledge-in-cultural-historical-archives-and-or-museums
