In addition to meeting the general CEU admissions requirements, applicants should submit letters of recommendation from three professors familiar with their post-graduate work, a three-page research proposal, as well as a motivation letter (200-400 words) indicating that they are applying for the ‘Democracy in East Central European Utopianism’ research scheme funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation. The topic of the proposal should fall within the broad thematic focus of the program as described below, and should address issues of method and substance, as well as previous work done in the field, in appropriate detail. Applications are welcome from candidates with a Master's degree that includes a Master's thesis. Applicants can apply here. Application deadline: February 1, 2022 (23:59, Central European Time) For more information on the application process, see here. For more information on the thematic area contact Professor Zsolt Czigányik at cziganyik.zsolt@btk.elte.hu Applicant Profile The ‘Democracy in East Central European Utopianism’ research project is seeking to appoint a PhD student to carry out research in this programme. The ideal candidate is a person holding an MA in either history or political science, preferably with a demonstrable knowledge in the history or politics of modern East Central Europe. An affinity to the analysis of literary texts is an advantage, as well as an interest (and preferably experience) in analysing utopian and other political texts. The knowledge of English and an East Central European language (other than Hungarian) is a necessity, Latin is an advantage., The ideal candidate has knowledge and interest in the 19-20th century history of political thought or political ideologies in Europe, preferably in East Central Europe. The PhD research proposal will need to correspond to the current project. The appointee will hold the position of a doctoral student, and will join an interdisciplinary research team that investigates 19th and 20th century East Central European utopian literature. RESEARCH FIELD AND RESEARCH QUESTIONS The project aims at the analysis of 19th and 20th century East Central European utopian texts, focusing on the problems and conflicts utopianism highlights concerning the ideals of democracy. We shall contrast such ideals with historical movements to trace the intellectual history of democracy within utopianism. Political concepts originating in Western Europe often become adapted and reinterpreted in Central Europe, this is why most Central European texts, unlike the ones produced in Western Europe, treat democracy as a utopian concept, something to be achieved. The research focus is not on individual texts or their authors, but how the texts reflect the historical context and conflicts concerning ideas of good government in East Central Europe. Further, how these conflicts reflect attitudes towards democracy in the region, particularly in comparison and contrast to Western Europe, will be central to the study. Based on Sargent (1994) the project considers utopias as ideas of a better society, not necessarily perfect, but intended to be ideal, at least significantly better than the current society of the author. Although the investigation focuses on texts and their relationship to historical and political movements and conflicts, all three faces of utopianism will be reflected, that is, literary texts, the utopian elements of political ideologies and to some extent intentional communities as well. Dystopias will also be considered as parts of the utopian discourse. There are great variations in the definition of Central Europe, the research will consider it not only as physical space but also a virtual (quasi-utopian) area marked by an awareness of and a longing for “democracy,” as a liminal territory in between East and West, showing signs of both Eastern and Western patterns of power relationship, a hybrid between democracy and dictatorship. It is assumed that the investigation of Central European texts and attitudes sheds light not only on the political thought of Central Europe, but also on the ideas concerning democracy both in Western and Eastern European political thought. WORKING CONTEXT, KEY DUTIES and RESPONSIBILITIES The Researcher will be a doctoral student of the Central European University in the department of History (or Political Science), and will be co-supervised and managed by the lead scholar, Dr. Zsolt Czigányik. The post-holder will receive guidance and support from members of the research team. The Doctoral Researcher will be expected to: • Effect research in full compliance of ethics, data and best-practice research guidelines valid at Central European University and the Gerda Henkel Foundation, and will be supported to do so • Fulfil the degree requirements of a PhD in Comparative History or Political Science at CEU, including coursework and exams in the first year of the program and the completion of the doctoral dissertation by the end of the project. • Collaborate effectively within the research group • Develop and deliver high-quality, innovative research outcomes on the subject of the research described above, including, but not limited to, the following activities: o As part of your research process, to participate in and convene workshops, seminars, conferences, training sessions and other collaborative events with a range of participants o Participation in the organisation of workshops of the research team o Produce research publications for leading international and/or peer reviewed journals o Produce book chapters for project-specific publications, including edited volumes o Participate in conferences of appropriate learned societies and associations o Produce research dissemination materials (blog, podcast, etc.) for the project’s public facing website and social media, as well as other channels o Perform editorial and critique tasks as appropriate to support other team members and the publications of the research team o Work with the lead scholar to ensure that he has the information and materials he needs to effect the smooth running of project o Other tasks as agreed with the lead scholar • Work closely with the other members of the research team to assist in research and outcome delivery • Travel, including international travel, where necessary and appropriate KEY DIMENSIONS AND CHALLENGES The post-holder will be working in an international, interdisciplinary context in which a range of disparate methodologies will be operative concurrently.

  9. Men’s Recap: The Utah men started off the night strong, winning the 200 medley relay by almost two full seconds in 1:24.47, just two tenths short of the NCAA A cut needed to qualify for the NCAA Championships. The quartet included Andrei Ungur, Andrew Britton, Cooper Deryk and Finn O’Haimhirgin, the same four from Utah’s school record relay of 1:24.15 from last year’s NCAA meet, where they finished 15th. Fresh off his win in the 200 IM last night, Princeton junior Raunak Khosla dominated the 400 IM, winning in 3:45.55. The Roswell, Georgia native had a notably fast breaststroke leg, splitting 30.17 and 31.37 for a blistering 1:01.54. Khosla’s best time stands at 3:41.75 from the 2020 Ivy League Championships. George Washington sophomore Djurdje Matic, a native of Belgrade, Serbia, won the 100 fly in 45.72, breaking GW’s program record by more than a full second. That time also easily clears the NCAA B cut and is faster than the invited time from the last three years, putting the sophomore in great position after the midseason meets. Utah’s Ben Waterman, a junior from Albuquerque, New Mexico, finished runner up in 46.48, just off his lifetime best of 46.23. Utah finished the session winning three straight first individual events. Their first win of the evening in the men’s 200 free, courtesy of freshman Marko Kovacic’s 1:35.61. One event later, his teammate, sophomore Jaek Horner, won the 100 breast in 53.04. Horner touched just ahead of Princeton junior Josh Brown, who settled for the runner up spot in 53.16. Utah’s final individual win came in the 100 back, where junior Andrei Ungur blasted a 46.06 to win by over a second. That time comes in under the NCAA invite time from last season. The Princeton men won the final race of the evening, the 800 free relay, in 6:24.82. The relay narrowly missed breaking Princeton’s program record of 6:24.75 from 2009. Also notably, Princeton’s Raunak Khosla set a new Tiger program record in the 100 breast in the prelims of 52.45, but scratched the final in favor of the 400 IM.
