FACULTY OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES
SCHOOL OF LITERATURE, DRAMA AND CREATIVE WRITING
LECTURER IN SIXTEENTH- AND SEVENTEEENTH-CENTURY LITERATURE • Ref: ATR1559
£42,792 to £49,553 per annum
The School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing is looking for a
full-time Lecturer in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature.
You will be joining the School’s thriving medieval and early modern
research community, in Renaissance England’s second city, Norwich. Your
expertise will complement our existing shared areas of specialism, such as
humanism and historiography, archives and book history, internationalism
and regionalism, although we welcome and encourage applications from
experts across early modern literary studies.
We are committed to inspiring our students through teaching which is
informed both by excellent research and by innovative pedagogy, and you
will be expected to teach both within and beyond our full range of early
modern undergraduate and postgraduate provision; including, for example,
modules on seventeenth-century literature, Shakespeare, and early modern
women’s writing, in addition to the usual teaching and administrative
duties of a full-time lecturer. We are dedicated to transforming our
research into exciting public engagement and impact work through local and
national partnerships, such as through our Unlocking the Archive project
(www.unlockingthearchive.co.uk) which works with organisations including
the Norfolk Heritage Centre and National Trust. We aim to foster an
environment of collegial support both within our own medieval and early
modern community and within the School more broadly. We look forward to
receiving your application.
This full-time, indefinite post is available from 1 September 2021.
We strongly encourage applicants from Black, Asian or other minority
ethnic backgrounds and welcome applications from all protected groups as
defined by the Equality Act 2010. Appointment will be made on merit.
Closing date: 19 July 2021.
