As part of our project about Sustainable Islands, Creole Ecologies: an Environmental History of Biodiversity, Health and Nutrition in Tropical Island Societies (late 19th to late 20th century), here attached, we could apply for a postdoc.
In the DIRE lab we are carrying out a project that we started three years ago. It’s an interdisciplinary approach (history and biodiversity issues). The project was not selected by the French National Research Agency (ANR) last time, but we plan to repeat this year with the advice of the positive evaluations we received. By Ecologias Criollas (SP) – Écologies Créoles (FR) – Creole Ecologies (EN) we understand those tropical island ecologies that are the result of colonial and post-colonial history.
For this purpose, it would be convenient that the postdoc be interested in tropical environmental history issues. We are open to any topic in environmental humanities (history, litterature, sociology, anthropology), although we would prioritize topics related to biodiversity conservation, food and health. The Campus France grant would last two years (50 000 euros), and we would seek first to continue studies on the environmental history of the Indian Ocean; or, if the researcher has not studied this area (as is my case), that he is willing to make comparisons of his tropical study area (Greater Caribbean, Caribbean Islands, Latin America Peninsulas, Pacific Islands) with a similar history of Creoleism from the researcher’s previous doctoral thesis with the Indian Ocean.
Requirements for the PhD: be a foreigner of the listed countries, with a thesis from the last five years and have not been resident in France since September, 1st 2019.
Please pass this on to candidates interested in studying any related subject and who understand and talk French (B1-C2) and are fluent in English (C1-C2). Spanish or Portuguese are complementary.
The application opens in May and ends on 5 July.
