28 March 2017

Deadline: 30 March 2017


This scholarship is offered as part of MULOSIGE (Multilingual Locals and Significant Geographies: For a New Approach to World Literature), a European Research Council-funded research project led by Professor Francesca Orsini, Chair of the Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS). MULOSIGE explores the numerous, often fractured, and non-overlapping worlds of literature, and studies world literature from the perspective of multilingual societies. The project aims to develop a multilingual approach to literary history, comparing the cases of North India, the Maghreb, and the Horn of Africa at three historical “moments”: the pre-colonial and colonial periods, decolonisation, and the last twenty years, when the idea of world literature has gained new intellectual and popular traction.
