NUI Galway is recruiting 2 full-time, fixed term Postdoctoral Researchers – Eighteenth-century theatre history for the above project led by Professor David O'Shaughnessy, School of English and Creative Arts and funded by the European Research Council.
This project investigates the finances of eighteenth-century theatre in London, 1732–1809. The project will transcribe and digitize manuscript financial records and will use econometric methods to analyse the theatres’ underlying commercial operations. The project will apply these economic methodologies so that new perspectives on the careers of managers, playwrights, actors, and plays emerge.
Contract duration: 1 January 2022 – 31 December 2024 (36 months)
