Professor Linda G. Jones, established at the Humanities Department of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), is interested in receiving Expressions of Interest of potential candidates for the Marie Sklodowska – Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA – IF) 2020 call.
Professor Jones has an interdisciplinary background in Religious Studies and Comparative Religions; Islamic Studies; Medieval History, and Religion and Gender studies. She applies these interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the religious and cultural history of medieval Iberia and the Maghreb; (trans)cultural interactions between Muslims and Christians in these regions and the broader Mediterranean; and the study of Islamic masculinities and comparative gender studies in the pre-modern period. She has published her research findings in numerous internationally renowned publishing houses and journals. She is also the PI of the research project, “Interdisciplinary and Comparative Studies in Religious, (Trans)cultural, and Gendered Identities in Medieval and Early Modern Iberia and the Mediterranean.”
Professor Jones would like to sponsor two post-doctoral researchers on any topic related to any one of her current and future lines of investigation focused on the pre-modern Iberian Peninsula and/or the Maghreb, which include the following: expressions of masculine identity and the relationality of gender in medieval Islamic texts; the relation between gender and religious identity and alterity; Mudejar religiosity, religious identity, and relations with Christians, Jews, and other Muslims; and the relationship between medieval Islamic preaching and culture, and the poetics of medieval Islamic oratory.
