HEX (Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in the History of Experiences, Tampere University) 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 2022 and 30 June 2023. HEX offers the fellows a lively and international research community, with regular seminars and workshops. 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 in a way that benefits both the Fellows and the HEX community.
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 24th January 2022 to HEX coordinator . The decisions will be made by 15th February 2022.
