ERC CONSOLIDATOR GRANT (2023-2028): THEATRE AND GENTRIFICATION IN THE EUROPEAN CITY is offering 4 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW POSITIONS starting in September 2023.
“Theatre and Gentrification in the European City” (THEAGENT) is a five-year research project funded by the European Research Council’s
(ERC) Consolidator Grant Program with a 2 million Euro grant. Located in the Institute for Urban and Regional Research (ISR) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), and conducted under the direction of Principal Investigator Dr. Emine Fişek, the project combines multi-sited ethnographic and archival research to analyze the relationship between theatre practices and urban transformation in five European metropoles in the twenty-first century: London, Berlin, Paris, Warsaw, and Istanbul. Ground-breaking in its mixed methodology, this project will be the first to explore theatre’s role in the cultural dimensions of Europe’s urban transformations, as well as to demonstrate gentrification’s role in the politics of contemporary European theatre.
