The Department of Classics and Mediterranean Studies and the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invite applications and nominations for the endowed chair “Foundation for Hellenic Studies—Illinois Chair in Hellenic Studies.” We seek a scholar in the humanities with a research focus on any aspect of Hellenic Studies, broadly understood. Areas of research focus may range from antiquity to the foundation of the modern Greek state to the present. Preference will be given to scholars who demonstrate in their research or teaching diachronic expertise in Greek culture and history. The appointment will reside in the Department of Classics and Mediterranean Studies or the Department of History. Shared appointments between these two units may be possible when appropriate.
The professorship focuses on the field of Economic and Social History of the Late Medieval and Early Modern Ages (13th–17th centuries). Research and teaching experiences should cover both periods, and successful candidates are expected to offer classes crossing topics and periods at the Bachelor, Master, and PhD level and for the Teacher training programme: History, Social Studies and Political Education (Teaching Subject). With respect to research and research-based teaching, the professorship will contribute to the established main research area “Economy and Society – A view from history and cultural studies” of the Faculty for Historical and Cultural Studies. Successful candidates are expected to have a strong interest in theories and methods of social sciences and economics.
The Department of History of Antwerp University is recruiting three PhD candidates in historical household finance. The PhD candidates will become part of the research project ‘The Social History of Finance’, funded with an FWO Odysseus grant. The project project explores why in Western economies banks only began to reach deep into society during the 1960s and 1970s. The half century that passed between their creation in the late 19th and early 20th century and the widespread use of their services by households suggests that, for a very long time, many households managed their finances differently. But which services did they use, and when, how and why did the providers of those alternatives make way for banks? What drove this fundamental change in household finance and why did it not come earlier? Current research on financial development has no answers to these questions.
