University of Aberdeen Global Empires Post-Graduate Research Project

Posted in PhD Studentship by Pippa on February 28, 2010

The post-graduate research project below may well be of interest

In recent years across a range of disciplines, empire has become a paradigm for rethinking a globalized world. In this context, the University of Aberdeen is pleased to advertise a number of Masters (fees
only) and Doctoral (fees and partial maintenance) Studentships within a broader interdisciplinary project on the ‘Ideas, Practices, and Impacts of Global Empires’. This brings together a supervisory team drawn from History, Anthropology, Hispanic Studies, International Relations, and the University’s museums. Within the project, we are interested in a number of themes: cross cultural encounters and collecting; material culture and visual representations of encounters; trade, migration, and empire; the ideologies of empires; and resistance and the ends of empires. Our areas of focus include: the British and American empires (especially Canada, the American South, South Asia, South Africa and the Antipodes); empires past and present in Latin America; Holy Roman Empire; modern German empires within and beyond Europe; Russia, especially Soviet Russia, including Russian informal empires; and competing imperialisms in East Asia. We invite applications from candidates with research interests (interdisciplinary or within the disciplines named above) touching one or more of these themes and areas.
