HEX is an international research centre that focuses on the theoretical and empirical study of experiences in history, with three overlapping research teams:
- Lived Religion
- Lived Nation
- Lived Welfare State
HEX represents the history of experiences as a fruitful new way of doing social and cultural history. Researchers at HEX combine the history of experiences with a variety of different approaches: e.g. the history of emotions; welfare and nationalism studies; history of religious and social movements; study of hagiography; gender and oral history; digital humanities; and the history of childhood and youth.

HEX invites applications for visiting fellowships of 1–3 months. The period of fellowship is negotiable but should take place between 1 September 2020 and 30 June 2021. HEX and the Tampere University will provide the chosen fellow(s) with an office at the HEX’s premises and cover the accommodation costs during the stay at one of the university guest apartments. Travel costs will not be covered and the fellowship is unsalaried. HEX Fellows are expected to conduct their individual research project and to participate at the HEX’s joint research seminars.
Researchers with a doctoral degree in all stages of academic career are eligible to apply. In order to apply, please submit a full CV with a list of max. ten most important publications and a one-page research plan for the fellowship period, which links your work to the history of experiences and to the HEX’s research agenda. Please specify the desired occasion and duration of your visit and send your application by 15 April 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The decisions will be made by early June 2020.
