Within the framework of a partnership between the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (Mucem) and the Institute of Societies in Change in the Mediterranean (SoMuM) of Aix-Marseille University, we are recruiting a post-doctoral researcher as of May 15, 2023, for a 12-month contract, renewable once.
The postdoctoral project will focus on artistic creation in situations of exile in France. It will propose to define and implement a survey-collection articulating studies and fieldwork, in order to gather acquisitions of works and everyday objects, accompanied by archives, first-hand documentation and interviews that contextualize them. The aim is not so much to retrace life itineraries as to analyze the conditions of artistic production in the context of exile: material, legal, administrative, political, economic, and social conditions of creation in the worlds of the visual arts.
The call is open to all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
The candidate must hold a doctorate of less than 4 years and have significant experience in the realization of field surveys and in the interdisciplinary approach. Experience in publishing will be particularly appreciated.
