School of Art, Media and American Studies


£32,548 to £38,833 per annum, pro rata for part-time


This project is funded by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA). It seeks to investigate the paradoxes and tensions inherent in the heritagisation of religious sites, objects and practices within Europe. The project seeks to take theories of heritage and heritagisation into novel directions by linking it to the analytical categories of religion, the secular, and the sacred. The region of East Anglia is historically characterised by great religious diversity. In the UK division of this research project, we examine how this diversity of religious sites, objects and practices, is appropriated as religious heritage and subjected to new heritage regimes.


Applicants are expected to submit a research proposal of around 500 words, which should include a potential research subject, a research question and outline of methodology. This research proposal will not be a fixed commitment, but will serve as starting point for the development of the research during the first months of the project, in discussion with the Principal Investigator. The project proposal should be submitted alongside the completed application form, CV and covering letter.
