We are pleased to announce a fully-funded doctoral/PhD position at the Faculty of Arts, University of Helsinki, Finland

The project “VoCAL Articulations of Identity and Empire (CALLIOPE)” at the University of Helsinki will run from March 2018 – February 2023 and is directed by dr. Josephine Hoegaerts. It is funded by the European Research Council (ERC-Starting Grant 2017). The project studies how vocal performances in parliament have influenced the course of political careers and political decision making in the 19th century. It shows how politicians’ voices helped to define the diverse identities they articulated. In viewing parliament through the lens of audibility, the project will offer a new perspective on political representation by reframing how authority was embodied - through performances that were heard, as well as those that could be seen.
