Call KADOC Fellow 2022

Call KADOC Fellow 2022

KADOC- KU Leuven yearly awards one fellowship to an international scholar (M/F/X) with max. 10 years of scientific seniority after PhD working on topics related to its main research fields. This programme offers the selected candidate the opportunity to work in its collections, to establish new scholarly links, and to broaden her/ his expertise in close interaction with Leuven scholars and heritage professionals.

In our 2022-call we would like to express a particular interest in candidates researching the multifaceted social commitment of religious actors in the 19th and 20th centuries, for instance in health care, poor relief, popular education, care provisions for vulnerable and indigent people. We particularly welcome scholars researching the motives, specific nature and significance of this religiously motivated social agency, and how this was reflected in (public) discourses, strategies, and imagery. We are particularly interested in comparative or transnational research.
