You will work as part of a team on the NWO-funded VICI project Redefining the Region: The Transnational Dimensions of Local Colour. This project aims to examine the unexplored transnational dimensions of local colour by studying media representations of regions and local colour fiction from the long 19th century in European and transatlantic frameworks. These materials provide unique case studies for transnational approaches: images and texts about European regions reached transnational audiences through emerging periodical cultures, dissemination of local colour fiction across Europe, and transcultural networks with North American diasporic communities.
Subproject 4: European Local Colour Fiction in Transnational Contexts, 1830-1914. Your postdoctoral research, which is to result in four scientific publications (one monograph, three articles), examines the transnational circulation of texts by selected major authors in local colour fiction from across Europe (e.g. Thomas Hardy, Selma Lagerlöf, Alphonse Daudet, Serafin Estebanéz Calderon). You will:
1. investigate which works of these writers were reprinted and where; whether texts were translated and by whom;
2. in the case of Great Britain and two other countries (in any case France and/or Germany), investigate how these works were received in press reviews upon republication. The focus will be on the circulation of these texts within Europe;
3. uncover examples of how regions elsewhere in Europe were represented by emigrant writers who had settled elsewhere in Europe.
Furthermore, you will contribute research results to the project’s database. You will participate in the project’s programme of meetings (e.g. expert meetings, conferences), as a speaker (3) and organiser (2), and you are also expected to contribute to collaborative research output (articles, public events).
