PhD scholarship in the field of Literature for children and young people in an intermedial perspective

The Graduate School, Arts, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University invites applications for a PhD scholarship inLiterature for children and young people in an intermedial perspective. This scholarship is available as of 1 February 2014 for a period of up to three years (5+3) and of up to four years (4+4). The candidate who is awarded the scholarship must commence their PhD programme on 1 February 2014.
The Faculty of Arts at Aarhus University has made Literature for children and young people in an intermedial perspective a research priority.
Digital developments have led to fundamental changes in the text and media world of which children and young people are part. For instance, children and young people have simultaneous access to literature in the medium of books (books written on paper) and in the form of digital formats such as audiobooks, e-books and apps.
Developments indicate that the degree of interaction between forms of expression such as literature, films, computer games and music will increase in future. For instance, characters, plots and settings occur simultaneously in children’s literature and a range of other media. Literature for children and young people is developing in an interaction between aesthetic choices and media/market conditions. Within this overall framework, applicants are required to describe a project that poses a central research question which takes its point of departure in literature for children and/or young people in an intermedial perspective.
