Post-Doc: Migration and the Narrative of Europe

[We have the following announcement.]

The Centre of Excellence in Law, Identity and the European Narratives at the University of Helsinki is hiring a post-doctoral researcher for a four-year fixed term period from 1 January 2019 onwards (or as agreed) to contribute to the subproject Migration and the narrative of Europe as an “Area of freedom, security and justice”. The deadline for applications is 18 November 2018.

EuroStorie is funded by the Academy of Finland and hosted by University of Helsinki. The purpose of EuroStorie is to launch a new, third generation inquiry that critically explores the emergence of narratives of Europe as responses to the crises of the twentieth century and how these narratives have shaped the ideas of justice and community in Europe. It studies the foundational stories that underlie the contested idea of a shared European heritage in law and culture, such as the ideas of rule of law, equality, tolerance, pluralism and the rejection of totalitarianism, and their relevance for current debates on identity and history.
