        From: "Rampton, Ben" <ben.rampton at kcl.ac.uk>
        Subject: 2 post-doc positions on ERC Life Writing & digital media project at King's

King’s College London is advertising two postdoctoral positions (of 3 years and 5 years) to work on a new collaborative research project in Life Writing and digital media, funded by the European Research Council. It is called Ego-media: The impact of new media on forms and practices of self-presentation’, and is being led by Professor Max Saunders, the Director of the Arts and Humanities Research Institute. He will be joined by his Co-Director of the Centre for Life-Writing Research, Professor Clare Brant, and two other King’s academics: Alexandra Georgakopoulou, Professor of Discourse Analysis & Sociolinguistics at the Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication, and Professor Leone Ridsdale, from the Institute of Psychiatry. The project’s steering group also includes colleagues from Culture Media and Creative Industries, Digital Humanities, French, Medical Humanities, Medical Sociology, War Studies, and Education.

The project aims to study the impact of new media on autobiographical narratives – an impact that is increasing as habits and practices of self-presentation evolve rapidly in response to constantly fast-changing technology. It will consider the implications of these new forms and practices for such notions as autobiography, selfhood, subjectivity, individuality, self-intelligibility, agency, creativity, privacy, and sociability.

The closing date for applications is the 11th March. For further details of how to apply please see:
