The Veneto in Unpublished Travel Journals from the Middle Ages to the Nineteenth Century

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Travel literature or travel studies offer extensive research pursuits because they embrace multiple fields of study, like history, art, foreign languages, archaelogy or epigraphy, geography and, at times, sociology. This first research grant requires a broad analysis of unpublished and manuscript documentation left by travellers to the Veneto region. The candidate will have a discover, catalogue, and describe, using current methodologies applied to travel studies, a sufficient corpus of travellers in the Veneto, producing a complete, relevant bibliography. The candidate will also be asked to prepare single entries for each traveller in the corpus in order to constitute a computerized data base that can be easily consulted, immediately by the department's teaching staff, and later by other scholars on the web.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
