AHRC PHD Studentships in Historical or Cultural Geography at Royal Holloway

Posted in PhD Studentship by Pippa on April 27, 2009

The Department of Geography has been awarded an AHRC studentship in Historical or Cultural Geography and is seeking suitably qualified candidates to commence PhD research in the academic year 2009-10.  The studentship pays all fees and a full maintenance award ( £14 940 for 2008-9, subject to review) for a three year period of research.

The topic areas for applicants are open within those broad disciplinary orientations to the arts and humanities. We would welcome applications from masters students working on questions of diaspora, multiculturalism, transnationality, ethnicity. We would also very much welcome applications from non-Geographers who feel that cultural or historical geography would be a conducive disciplinary home for their work.

Applications from those in related disciplines with an interest in working in Geography are encouraged.  Potential applicants are strongly recommended to discuss their ideas with Professor Tim Cresswell, Director of Graduate Studies, Professor David Gilbert, Director of the Social and Cultural Geography research group, or another member of staff with related interests before making a formal application.

Applications must be made by June 15th 2009http://www.rhul.ac.uk/registry/admissions/applyonline.html
