APPLY FOR AHRC/TECHNE PHD STUDENTSHIPS AT CMNH 2019-20
Fully funded PhD studentships at the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories, University of Brighton
The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories (CMNH) at the University of Brighton invites applications for AHRC/TECHNE fully funded doctoral studentships commencing October 2020 on topics concerning the cultural significance of the past for lived experience, social relationships, politics and identities in the present and in the future.Trans/interdisciplinary in ethos, the CMNH offers supervisory expertise to students working in and across a range of disciplines including history, cultural studies, literature, memory studies, social anthropology, cultural geography, art, media, film and visual studies, performance studies, critical theory, sociology, psycho-social studies, critical heritage studies, and narratology.
Applications for PhD studies in these areas, and on topics that address the relation between powerful or official memories, narratives and histories and those which give expression to subordinate, marginalised and neglected historical experience, are especially welcome. Proposals concerned with any practice that produces understandings and representations of ‘the past’ (including oral history, life history/life writing, remembrance and commemoration, critical archive practice, public history and heritage, autobiography, and history-making in popular culture as well as academic scholarship), and that relates to the interests of individual supervisors, are also welcome.
PhD students play a central role in the Centre and successful applicants will benefit from an exciting and supportive research culture with many opportunities for participation in our collective work. For further details about the Centre's thematic research areas, research interests and activities, staff and current research students, see the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories homepage.
These studentships are offered by the TECHNE doctoral training consortium via the University of Brighton’s Doctoral College. For information about the awards, eligibility and application process, and to download application forms, go to the University of Brighton's techne DTP webpage.
