The Advisory Board of the research project Reading and Writing From Below: Toward a New Social History of Literacy in the Nordic Sphere During the Long Nineteenth Century, funded by the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social Sciences, has elected the project’s salaried post-doctoral researchers. There were 13 applications from four Nordic countries.
Three criteria were used in assessing the applications: 1) quality of the application, 2) relevance to the project as a whole and 3) novelty of the topic and the approach. Two external reviewers contributed to the selection process.
