Stuart Elden awarded Leverhulme major research fellowship

Stuart Elden has been awarded a Leverhulme major research fellowship for three years, to begin on 1 October 2022. The full list of awards is here.

Stuart's project has the title of 'Mapping Indo-European thought in 20th century France', looking at both French and émigré scholars, with a particular focus on Emile Benveniste, Georges Dumézil, Mircea Eliade and Julia Kristeva. The work will use the extensive archives of Benveniste, Dumézil and Eliade, located in Paris and Chicago, and historically situate the work within wider debates about the politics, languages and geography of Europe. Planned outputs include a book and linked articles.
