Deadline: 1 March 2019

The field of Humanities at the Open University includes the disciplines of History, Art History, Philosophy and Literature. Research in Humanities is embedded in the research programs ‘The Value and the Valorization of Culture.’ The focus lies on the study of culture as a complex interaction of dynamic social processes in which values and meanings are developed and formed. Literature forms a separate section within the faculty of Humanities and Law; the staff members of this section carry out research on Western literature and offer courses on literature within the Bachelor and Master Humanities programs. In the research of the section Literary Studies, the focus so far has been on two subtopics: ‘Literature as a social and aesthetic discourse’ and ‘Cultural mediation and participation.’
