Applications are invited from enthusiastic and talented individuals for a 36-month research position as part of a European Research Council funded project-FOODCULT (Food, culture and Identity in Ireland (c. 1550–1650).
The project, led by Dr Susan Flavin (Trinity College Dublin), will run for five years (February 2019–January 2024). It is the first major project to establish both the fundamentals of everyday diet, and the cultural ‘meaning’ of food and drink, in early modern Ireland. Exploring the period 1550–1650, it develops a ground-breaking interdisciplinary approach, merging micro-historical analytical techniques with cutting-edge science, technology and experimental archaeology, to examine what was eaten, where, why and by whom, at a level of detail previously deemed impossible for this period in Irish history. The PD will be appointed under Work Package 2 (WP2) of the FOODCULT project: Mapping Diet: Comparative Foodways in Early Modern Ireland, which will transform archaeological grey and published data into knowledge to facilitate the complex interdisciplinary study of comparative regional diets in early modern Ireland.
