The post-doctoral researcher will be part of a dynamic research environment with a long track record in energy studies and in which historical studies are seamlessly integrated with studies with a more present-day focus.
Funded by the STandUp for Energy-strategic research programme (www.standupforenergy.se), the post-doc will further play an important part in strengthening the historical and societal dimension of KTH’s energy-oriented research.
The post-doc will carry out research about the history of energy supply. Within this broad frame, the post-doc will have considerable flexibility in defining his or her own research focus.
The post-doc may also be asked to participate, on a smaller scale (10-20%), in teaching and tasks of a more administrative character.
This book presents a sociolinguistics of academic publishing from an historical and contemporary perspective. Using Swedish academia as a case study, it focuses on publishing practices within history and psychology. The author demonstrates how new regimes of research evaluation and performance-based funding are impinging on university life. His central argument, following the French sociologist Bourdieu, is that the trend towards publishing in English should be understood as a social strategy, developed in response to such transformations. Thought-provoking and challenging, this book will interest students and scholars of sociolinguistics, language planning and language policy, research policy, sociology of science, history and psychology.
