We’ve just announced some exciting new PhD studentships at Edge Hill University. Each award includes a full waiver of postgraduate tuition fees as well as free  accommodation on campus (or a cash equivalent in lieu). Winners will be expected to teach for up to six hours per week. An annual stipend in the region of £7,380 will be paid at monthly intervals. Research proposals are invited in the areas below:

  • African American History
  • Crime and punishment history in modern Britain
  • The portrayal of slavery/the slave trade in museums and the heritage industry with particular reference to Britain and the United States.
  • The Digital Humanities: Nineteenth-Century Journalism History or Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Cultural History

If you’d like to work with me then the fourth bullet point is the one to aim for. The deadline is Monday 18 March.

The History team at Edge Hill is a highly rated and dynamic group. Our research and teaching are focused on Modern History, from the end of the 18th to the end of the 20th centuries, in Britain, Europe, North America and the Middle East. All full-time members of staff were entered for the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2008 and 30% of their published research was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent. The submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) will also be strong. The History Group contribute to interdisciplinary taught Masters programmes in History and Culture and Popular Culture and also to the Masters by Research History programme. The subject area has a longstanding and highly successful record of PhD supervision.
